Actually worth the $12
Saw No Country for Old Men last night in a theater. First time I've been to a movie theater in a while, and boy was it worth it. If Roger Deakins doesn't win every award out there for cinematography for this film than he'll have to win it for another that I look forward to seeing over the holidays home with the family in Toronto. Talk about a career year!
Pretty much uniform praise for NCFOM at Meta Critic.
NY Times reviewer A.O. Scott makes the good point that “'No Country for Old Men' is purgatory for the squeamish and the easily spooked. For formalists — those moviegoers sent into raptures by tight editing, nimble camera work and faultless sound design — it’s pure heaven."
Colour me a formalist.
