Film Tip of the Week: No Country for Old Men

A story defined by mysterious motives, complemented with immaculate acting and scenes so iconic you probably would think about rewatching it again.

It is sometimes easy to overlook the real gems of the past when it comes to good movies. This one especially brought my attention, with its seemingly calm but overwhelming suspense.

No country for old men, is not so much about the story itself but rather what the unfolding situations that puts the viewer on the edge of their seat. What we do know is that a seemingly ordinary man stumbles upon two million dollars in cash, unwittingly keeping it without realizing how dire the consequences that would follow would become. It becomes an increasingly complex and violent conflict as drug cartels join in the chase. But, the most dangerous threat of all is a psychopathic hitman whose interest in the matter puts the viewer into a philosophical viewpoint where one man's life becomes determined by the sheer randomness of the toss of a coin.   

It is a story defined by mysterious motives, complemented with immaculate acting and scenes so iconic you probably would think about rewatching it again just so one can relieve this masterpiece.

You can watch the movie through Netflix here.
