Tape, based on the novel by Cormac McCarthy, considered one of the best creations of Coen brothers. I these filmmakers are primarily known for the film "the Big Lebowski", familiarity with which the first time is not specified. Here we rolled the film, which combines in itself the atmosphere of a creepy Thriller, dragged chases, shootouts, and is accompanied by all the philosophical reflections on the nature of human nature.

And after these films I less and less I want to dream that you find the street a coin, because of Fig understand who she is belonged. So here the main character, a Vietnam veteran, decided to hunt on the deer went on the blood finds the place of the massacre. As it turned out to be drug dealers something not shared shot each other. Finding the suitcase with the money, he decided to take it yourself. As saying, "quietly steal and left — is called "found"". But as it turned out, money were the owners, and they intend to get it back. With one side start it pursuit of Mexicans, with the other hand at the soul of the hero went with a real psychopath. The urge of one man's greed runs a series of murders in Texas, along with which is trying to fight an old Sheriff...

Then, with what tenacity Ethan Joel approached creating the tape, deserves a special praise. They not only made a movie, but still wrote the script, acted as the producers and editors. The movie talks about the era of the ' 80s, we say that criminals really raged and keep the fear of the area. And the priests of all the forces transmit the tension of the atmosphere, from the cool camera work and lack of finishing the soundtrack for the course of the film. Yes, it is the silence of the desert, neposlushaniya the sound of gunfire and the breeze brings a chill.

Concerning the performer of the role of the protagonist brothers long fooled. First they wanted to played Floor Walker. Then tried to call Heath Ledger, but he refused. And Josh Brolin, which finally played the main character, the filmmakers refused, and the actor himself. he recorded samples. And you know, Josh Brolin is more suitable for the role of a former veteran struggling with their pursuers, than the Ledger. It Lewellyn moss was somewhat grumpy, but when he lives are threatened, he will be fought, how the wounded wolf.

Sheriff ed Tom bell in the performance Tommy Lee Jones plays in the role of local Confucius. He already felt tired to see all these atrocities, talking to their age about how the current generation has gone mad. Its the monologues that open and close the film, infused with deep implications, and over his interpretation of the two dreams should think.

But let's be honest, though, Brolin and Lee Jones played well, the real king here Javier Bardem, who played the maniac psychopath Anton chigur. Seriously, it a today is the nightmares to the dreams. Himself the author of a novel called Anton "pure evil." From ordinary killers it features the coolness and determination, as the Terminator, exorbitant cruelty and a kind of philosophy. He considers himself an instrument of fate, prefers to decide the fate of the characters with using coins. One of the most powerful scenes of the film occurs on the gas station where cigar tosses a coin and tells the salesman "guess the party at stake all your life." The killer also stored their weapons — most often, it deals with people as cattle, using a pneumatic nail gun, which sometimes picks locks better than any of the bugbears. The character immediately entered the lists of the best magazines, and the Javier Bardem received this role Oscar. That allows you to put it on the slope next to the Anthony Hopkins Heath Ledger, for the film minutes somewhere on 20 maximum.

And you know, I this movie is like not only because he is one of the few of in which I shudder. It is designed in the spirit of the original bloody tales of the cycle of anger in nature. In addition to the noted acting of Bardem film won the statuette for best Director, best screenplay, and most delicious — "Best film". And that is the source of McCarthy I, frankly, do not logged in. Everything is written in such a style that all literate would be hanged on the nearest birch.

Whatever the conditions are not put your heroes Cormac McCarthy, it will write a Western with a mother's uncles, roadmovie dialogue and moral the tune of "the purse or life?". For whatever story came from the Coen brothers, they will remove the classics, even though the innovative shape of the source. Based on the novel "Old men no place" brings both these statements in one point.

1980. Texas. Local men who survived the war in Vietnam, and before that, World war II, and before that First world, and before this, Civilian and so forth, forget that the wild West. Local Sheriff's boast that even weapons with not are the time Mexican bandits establish drug trafficking through the southern state. Of course, without the bloody skirmishes at this case is not do one of such despatches case full of two million with a tail, but is suspiciously similar in appearance and content case a million dollars of "Fargo" gets in the hands of towboating welder Llewlyn moss. Llewelyn realizes that the money will lead to trouble, but still indulges in all serious with a suitcase at the ready, paying on your way bloody, often in the truest sense of the word, money. On his trail is cold-blooded then whether a psychopath, a murderer, if the angel of death Anton chigur. The cynicism of the mercenary is so off the charts that he deliberately leaves a clue to the following is a middle-aged Sheriff bell. The last ambiguous makes it clear to the audience-the reader in my head long ago revealed all of the crime, but not willing to fight with endless cruelty, which he doesn't understand.

Simple plot exposition is required to grow in the full story of what characteristic of the priests, and in this novel McCarthy as if created for them. All thought about life's journey, as a series of short-term decisions whose outcome is as predictable as the winning "heads or tails" illustrated visually, but are excluded from the dialogs, why cigar brought before the audience a maniac who kills at the behest of the coin, local conversations turn into a pathetic passages of the original, and the arbiter of the fate of the characters becomes a case not subject to any laws. To unfortunately, unsaid concern not only the dialogues: from the audience missed the whole scene, revealing how the front merits the Sheriff brought him to the position "Wu-Wei" and why incorruptible assassin chasing case with money. In the result, the ending is crumpled, the film's title is not disclosure and the main characters remind cow boys who don't noticed turned themselves in lowing in front of the TV in anticipation of humane death from a pneumatic gun for the slaughter of cattle.

The missing elements of the story linked in the first with signature style two-headed Director, stamp Comedy, the humor of which is so black that the laugh not necessary. For the wounded cowboy as not to miss the chance to the future is more important than the present, the serial killer's victims reads morality on how we must live before them die, Texas Sheriff would prefer the horse car, which was brought to this car. "When we stop telling each other "sir" and"mA'am", the world roll in hell" — the strongest phrase that is the tip of the thought of Bella becoming only taken out of the context of a joke, because the Kohanim are not need extra considerations: quite common irony and properly constructed images. At this approach "Old men do not place" easily converted into "Fargo 2", which leads the audience to the joyful exclamation "Cohen back!" but a bit confusing a return with samupasthitam

The however, painting is captivating in its simplicity, the nature of which originates from books, paying attention to neither the images, descriptions and thoughts, and on specific actions. Beneficence narrative devoid of punctuation and emotion, perfect for similar to the film adaptation of the classic methods, which without any extra effort allowed the Coens to create the work as clean as and dry. The ordinary spectator will please quality without any extra decorations. Suffering from kinoodessa will love many items, which one view is not exactly follow. Amateur speceffekty spectacle will be disappointed and a complete lack of understanding of how in the twenty-first century would like to go old school, and that is for the thing that there is no soundtrack. And meanwhile, silence plays a Central role and not only emphasizes the importance of each word, but and confirms that the sound of gunfire steal from westerns with Clint Eastwood.

The name "No Country for Old Men" has many meanings; in first and foremost due to the different translation of the word "country" that causes accordion "thank not translated as "old people of the country is not play"". According to the poem of which Cormac borrowed the title, it is not so much about a specific place, but about the country. In his affair on the US criticized all of modern society which, under the cover with one hand, market relations, and other — the principle "who is stronger that and the rights", has lost any concept of morality. It is possible to accept such title as light self-irony of an elderly writer. What concerns the film adaptation, devoid of biblical allusions and any explanation, it is under "country" it is easier to see the "place", because fifty years the priests only slightly experimented with and showed himself much older than McCarthy, who wrote in seventy years of novel the innovative form.

"they Say the eyes are the Windows to the soul. Not know that was his eyes and unlikely to understand when. But the world is changing and eyes, too, to everything goes. Not thought live to this. Somewhere out there is a true and living prophet of destruction and I want to deal with him. You know he really exists..."

"Old men do not place" is not quite a movie, it's philosophy and multi-story that true, exclusive evil can be represented through the eyes and actions of one person. Just one, but it is enough to see its destructive power. The embodiment of the eyes and the actions of this evil is the image of chiguru Anton (Javier Bardem) who is after two million dollars in turn on the confluence of fortuitous circumstances got in the hands of ordinary, but extremely stubborn, proud, sarcastic, but self yourself Loveline moss (Josh Brolin). The confluence of these circumstances was a transaction in which killed many people. The investigation of murders engaged in the usual Sheriff, who is preparing to care a well-deserved rest (Tommy Lee Jones), through this way the Coen Brothers show us a glimmer of goodness that try to get through the veil of a bloody and ruthless events. In the team it will be very studious young boy, who is a little slow, but will try to gain experience and the Sheriff to assist in the investigation. The idea of the narrative is quite simple, but were delivered very subtly and perfectly. We see that when you try to resist evil, true evil, which is not have motives to carry out another murder, no place of pity and compassion if you decided to leave him call Lavilin decided then go to or end up to the moment when the evil offers you to choose from. As Andrzej Sapkowski wrote a series of books about "the Witcher":

There are just Evil and Great Evil, and both of the shadows hiding Very Great Evil... Sometimes it happens that a Very Great Evil will grab you by the throat and say, "Choose, brother, or I, or that which is bit smaller..."

Speaking of the acting and staging of this story, I want to say that developers the performers 100% were able to convey the necessary atmosphere and emotion, necessary for transmission of the picture. I was very pleased with the plot and the denouement, the film differs from many its genre. Watching movies in the same genre, you all completely immersed in the action around you don't think you can imagine what it's all over. Watching this story, on the contrary, I anticipated and was wondering how it will all end in that will result in confrontation between the major powers...

This masterpiece and smart communicating what we wanted to show, I have the honour to rate in 10 points of a possible 10.
