No Country for Old Men

I went to see the new Coen Brothers film on Saturday. It’s a relentless study of time, chance, morality, landscape and murder set in Texas in 1980. It won’t be to everyone’s taste (they seemed to be staying away in droves at the Galway Omniplex) but if you appreciate expertly shot films that are given enough time to unfold rather than rushing to some effects-laden ending you’ll appreciate this. Javier Bardem will make you require a clean set of underwear (best bring ’em with you) and you’ll never see such a sadistic use of compressed air anywhere else.
