I’d seen No Country for Old Men, the 2007 thriller film written and directed by Joel and Ethan Coen.
Very scary. Especially Javier Bardem as Anton Chigurh.
The film won 76 awards on 109 nominations across multiple organizations; it won four awards at the 80th Academy Awards – Best Picture, Best Director(s), Best Supporting Actor (Bardem) and Best Adapted Screenplay …
… many regard it as the Coen brothers’ best film. …

The Coens’ script was mostly faithful to the source material.
The 2005 novel has the same dark feel.
A drug deal gone wrong near the Mexican border in 1980. A psychopath killer.
Though some argue that Cormac McCarthy is “our greatest living writer” — early critical reception of the novel was mixed.
I loved The Road (2006), the post-apocalyptic novel awarded the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.
The Road was an excellent film, as well.
