No Country for Old Men (2007)
There is a lot of tension in this movie. No music. A very quiet film. It’s hard to watch. Not that it was bad, but it’s something that I try to avoid. There are people like this in the world. It scares me that there are people like that.
I am a squeamish person. Whenever Anton Chigurh came onscreen, I had to cover my eyes. The violence is so sporadic in this film, but it leaves you with a sense of dread, anxiety and fear.
It reminded me of “A History of Violence”. At the beginning of that movie, it was dead quiet. Sorry for the pun, then a flurry of violence endures and back to silent again.
I have to say that this is not my type of movie to watch. I am glad I didn’t watch it at the movie theater. I would have run out of the theater.
If you have a strong stomach and you can FORGIVE the ending, then go see this movie.
