“No country for old men”

I have to say, I was blown away – this film is just perfect. There are films, or books, that you enjoy watching, and you may even recall after a while, in a context of life event or something. And there are films, that come back to you, with vivid imagery, and with emotions and questions that are deeply rooted in your own existence.  This is definitely one of those good movies. The film soared to one of the best films I’ve seen, ever. A perfectly told story on fundamental existential questions, human existance, faith, desires and our own weaknesses. A picture of turbulent nature of human existence in the very non-human, unpredictable world.

There are many great reviews and analysis, and I’ve read few, for example this one and this one (both are brilliant).

I have not understood everything upon the first viewing, and may need to watch it more. Or read the screenplay/book. One question is who was Carson Wells (what or whom he represents). Some discussion about that I found here.

Let me ask you something. If the rule you followed brought you to this, of what use was the rule?”
