"No Country for Old Men" is as much a riddle as any other Coen movie, something that appears very sleight from a plot perspective but nonetheless is filled to the brim with some sort of hidden meaning. If you (understandably) don't like this on-the-edge-of-pretention style, you c...

What a great movie with a fantastic stand out performance from Javier Bardem as the twisted and strange hit man.

Most thrillers maybe entertaining but 'No Country For Old Men' invites its audiences right into the story, creating an incredibly tense, clever piece topped with black humour on the side.

Ever since their dark debut "Blood Simple" in 1984, Joel & Ethan Coen have commanded an audience's attention. They followed that up with the wacky and kinetic comedy "Raising Arizona" in 1987, proving early on, that they were comfortable in any genre. That hasn't changed over the...
