‘No Country for Old Men’

Roger Ebert:

“No Country for Old Men” is as good a film as the Coen brothers, Joel and Ethan, have ever made, and they made “Fargo.” It involves elements of the thriller and the chase but is essentially a character study, an examination of how its people meet and deal with a man so bad, cruel and unfeeling that there is simply no comprehending him.

Saw it this afternoon and it’s just indescribably good. Can’t shake the feeling that it’s one of the best movies I’ll ever see.

(I would love if someone could explain to me exactly what happened, though, in the scene toward the end where Tommy Lee Jones goes into the motel room.)
