No Country for Old Men (2007): Netflixin 5/15/08

  • Why I rented it: Lots of background static about this one a while back. Won the Oscar for Best Picture, so people I may or may not agree with think it's good. Raising Arizona (by the same guys) is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen.
  • Verdict: 8.5 / 10. It's always fun to listen to extended philosophical dialogue sequences between rednecks with ridiculous accents who use words like "linear" and "immobile" as much as they use double negatives and psychopaths with existential streaks who operate like Terminators. This movie is also dang depressing and nihilistic. It sticks in your head. That's a good movie to me.
