Last year when the critics first started talking about No Country for Old Men I remember hearing that a lot of viewers were going to be on the fence about their feelings. The critics didn't give any specifics surrounding why people would feel this way, so I so I forgot about it just as quickly as I heard it.
Last night I finally got around to watching the film on DVD and now I understand. Our DVD player/recorder is a cheap model that suffers periodic bouts of heat stroke. The final five minutes of the movie was a little weird, but it always went back to where it belong. Or did it? I'm curious enough that when the film makes it onto on cable, I'll have to set it to record.
Perhaps I still have it wrong.
I'd be curious to hear other reviews--of the last five minutes or the whole thing.
