Anton Chigurh from No Country for Old Men

You can tell an ant on sugar “You don’t have to do this.”, but I doubt it will listen.

    this movie was so pointless. Its just this guy going around killing random people. But then again, who needs plots?

    I don’t think this was about good guys not winning or any of that. I believe the theme is directly in the title; that the world moves on, even if we don’t. There have always been monsters like Chigurh throughout history, but the main character (the Sheriff) was having trouble with the idea of such a man existing at this stage in his life. He felt like he couldn’t keep up, that he was being left behind.

    I wish the Coen brothers would have transitioned scenes a little better. Just a little more time in the beginning and end of scenes to get a sense of bearing. And I think they could should have done a better job of explaining Llewellyn’s demise. The teenage drifter he picked up and talked to just became a “Hiya” by the motel pool. The local sheriff’s deputy should have explained what happened at the scene, but didn’t. And there was no shootout between Chigurh and the Sheriff. So that part almost seemed rushed. I guess all of this would probably add another 20-30 minutes to an already ADD afflicted audience, but it could have made a great movie a little better.

    But the ambience, mood, lack of music, cinemetography, was all perfect. The Coen Brothers did an incredible job of making these characters come to life.

    Tony pretty much nailed it, but the oncoming future thing is tied with an extreme fatalism.

    Chigurh says it quite a few times in the movie. In the scene at the gas station he explains how the coin made its way after 23 years (I think it was 23) and rather than Chigurh deciding the man at the counter’s fate, the coin makes the decision.

    Before killing Llewellyn’s wife he comments on how everyone says he “doesn’t have to do this.” Well, thats just the thing, he does. We are powerless against our fate which, in the end, is settled by a simple coin toss.

    Also, the most of the movie is based on coincidence, suggesting that the entire adventure was pre-planned. Had Llewllyn not gone back to get the Mexican water, had the man at the counter not “married into it,” had Chigurh not found the phone records at Llewellyn’s home none of the rest of the plot would have played out.

    In an odd way, the ending of this movie felt really similar to the ending of Fargo, albeit much less optimistic.

    By the way, this movie has the most terrifying DVD cover I’ve ever seen.

    I guess I should have made it clear that my comments were in reference to things that were in the book, but not the movie. For those that were left completely confused, I suggest you read it. As soon as I heard that the Coen Brothers were having a new movie come out soon, I picked up the book and read it. I’m stationed in Germany, and when the film finally got to that location, I got deployed. But I did just see it on DVD.

    The Road, by Cormac McCarthy as well, is also a great book. But if you think this was fatalistic, holy shit, you just have to read it. They are making that into a movie too, but I don’t know how they could possibly capture the total sense of defeat , hope, and love in that novel. It was emotionally exhausting reading it.

    This movie was shit. The ending pointless, stop trying to justify a movie which seemed to just fizzle out. What a waste of life.
