 No Country for Old Men Anticlimax Disappointment

No Country for Old Men Anticlimax Disappointment

No Country for Old Men, a movie written and directed by Joel and Ethan Coen, otherwise known as the Coen Brothers, staring Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin and Javier Bardem. Adapted from the Cormac McCarthy novel, of the same name, recently the winner of 4 Academy Awards, Best Director, Best Picture, Best Screenplay Adapted and Best Supporting Actor.

I watched this movie, No Country for Old Men, at my local Cinema, with high expectation, after all the hype and awards given. The Film kept you thinking throughout that a dramatic event and climax was just around the corner. Every time your hopes were raised up, they were dashed at quickly as they were raised. In my mind the film was pretty senseless, and lacked any serious meaning, emphasised by the abrupt and uneventful ending, leaving people in the cinema not even realising the film was over.

I think the award givers, are pretty much a bunch of people not in tune with the public consensus, when I discussed the Film and its abrupt ending with a couple of people on my way out of the cinema, they said they wished they had missed the last 10 minutes or so and made up the ending in their mind, they were 100% sure they would have come up with a better ending.

In my opinion, the only way this type of film can win an Oscar, let alone 4 Oscars, is if it was the only film in contention. The film makers were much more interested in setting the sense for the sequel than producing a meaningful ending. I know there were not a lot of good movies out and in contention for the Oscars, due to the writers strike, but the ending of No Country for Old Men, seemed as if the writers and Directors, the Coen Brothers were on strike too.

I am guessing the Coen Brothers did not just fall asleep or go on strike at the middle of the shooting of No Country for Old Men, maybe they just run out of steam.
