Well.....what a stunning piece of cinema. One of the best films I've seen. The Coen Brothers did a brilliant job with this film. It's wonderfully directed. The pace, the plot, the characters, the location, the story, every last detail was just right and it all just flowed together so well..
I understand why people might think the pace is a bit slow....but I don't think it would have worked so well if it had been done any other way. I also absolutely loved the script, I appreciate good writing, and this was just great.
I suppose I should mention the cast and the acting. Some exceptional performances, particularly by Mr Brolin. But the man who stole the show for me, as with a lot of people, was Javier Bardem as Anton Chiguhr. Absolutely mesmerising performace.....so calm, so...almost eerily peaceful, no matter what he was doing. And the scene in the gas station....pure genius.
And just for the record........I loved the ending.
All in all a wonderful film, a massive well done to the Coen Brothers and the Cast.
