We saw No Country for Old Men this afternoon, and I left impressed and on board with most of the critical praise.
I haven't read the Cormac McCarthy novel, so I can't comment on the adaptation, but it definitely seems like a return to form for the Coen Brothers. It feels like a refinement of their earlier work, a bit less obvious humor than Fargo and a bit more directly related to Blood Simple or Miller's Crossing. Really violent, well constructed and thoughtful.
