No Country for Old Men

Go see this movie. The Coen brothers need the money. And you will really, really enjoy it, in that way one enjoys a creepy thriller about a psychopath looking for a suitcase full of cash. Even if you don't like the Coen brothers, generally--and if you don't, then I have no idea how you came to read this blog--this one is a classic. Not a quirky classic, like Fargo, but like Badlands (not a Coen brothers movie, of course). I'm definitely going to see this one again.

Very jealous. I'm dying to see NCFOM, but will likely have to wait for video.

As an aside, in one national review I read, it put this movie along what the reviewer saw as the other "great" Cohen films: Barton Fink, Big Lebowski, and The Man Who Wasn't There. For me, those are all distinctly second tier. I'd elevate Miller's Crossing, O Brother, Raising Arizona, and Fargo to the top rank (in roughly that order).
