This is the best film that ive seen this year ....with Eastern Promises at a close second! My only complaint was in the CG blood on a couple of scenes, but otherwise IMO .... it is the BEST Coen Bros. film!

Anyone ever read the novel? Im just wondering how much of the dialogue was McCarthy's or Coen's.

http://www.charlierose.com/shows/2007/11/16/1/a-discussion-about-the-film-no-country-for-old-men

Link for recent round table interview by Charlie Rose with Coens, Javier Bardem and Josh Brolin.  They discuss the film, casting, novel and adaptation, and Cormac McCarthy.  Runs 33:37.  I like most of his interviews.  His entertainment interviews are always more satisfying than the late night talk shows.  This site has a nice selection of archived interviews through the years with guests of varying fields and topics along with recent shows.

Of course, the celebrities that go on Jay Leno (and his contemporaries) only have time to say a few jokes then explain the clip of the film their in.

I just returned from seeing it. It's definitely the best film of the year, by far!!! Brilliant story telling. I seen a lot of Sergio Leone and Sam Peckinpah in this film. The reason it will stand the test of time is because every little aspect of the film is not explained, and it's left to be interpeted by us. We will be talking about this film for years. It's destined to be a masterpiece and is an instant classic in my opinion.

It's getting 8.9/10 on IMBD! Yeah I know - it's IMBD, but still, 8.9 is impressive. I'd better go watch it.

Definitely watch it Tuco! I even think this film is heavily influenced by Stanley Kubrick's work. It's a great film.

Many thanks for this link, Noodles_SlowStir.  There's some interesting stuff in this interview and the site's archives and a patient viewer can learn a lot. I must get to see this film when it opens locally.

I loved that interview Noodles! Thanks for posting.  Afro
