Academy Award Winners: Best Film, Director, Screenplay, Actor, 2007. “No Country for Old Men is the first movie I’ve seen in a very long while that deserves to be called a masterpiece. It’s such a stunning achievement in storytelling that, when the DVD comes out, I’d wager you could even turn off the sound and hardly miss a thing. This really isn’t a movie to watch on DVD, though. You need as big a screen as possible to savor Roger Deakins’ sweeping cinematography, which is as integral to the movie’s triumph as the edge-of-the-seat direction by Joel and Ethan Coen—or a trio of unforgettable performances by Javier Bardem, Josh Brolin, and Tommy Lee Jones. Adapting (and, if you ask me, surpassing) a 2005 novel by Cormac McCarthy into their best-ever movie and their first Best Picture contender since Fargo, the Coens deliver a classic, neo-noir Western of innocence lost set in 1980 Texas.”—Lou Lumenick, New York Post
