No Country For Old Men
- Awards: 4 Academy Awards & 2 Golden Globe Awards
No Country for Old Men came out during what seemed to be a renaissance of the epic or mini-western-style film genre. The film is based on the book of the same name written by Cormac McCarthy. It easily became one of this generation’s classic movies the moment it came out. Set in the 1980 West Texas desert landscape, we follow three characters. The first is Llewelyn Moss, a Vietnam war veteran who stubbles across a lot of money in the desert. The second is Anton Chigurh, a hitman tasked with recovering the money. Finally, Tom Bell, the local sheriff charged with investigating the crime.
