What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Barry Ronge Bloody great.
Paul Arendt With No Country For Old Men, the Coen brothers have once again placed themselves at the very forefront of American cinema.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert Many of the scenes in 'No Country for Old Men' are so flawlessly constructed that you want them to simply continue, and yet they create an emotional suction drawing you to the next scene. Another movie that made me feel that way was 'Fargo.' To make one such film is a miracle. Here is another.
Jason Anderson Easily the Coens’ least self-indulgent and most satisfying outing since The Big Lebowski.
James Berardinelli If there's one thing that can always be said of a Coen Brothers film, it's that conventional rules and expectations can be jettisoned. That's certainly the case here, with a Western that's not a Western, a crime thriller that's not a crime thriller, and a comedy that's not a comedy.
Peter Travers The Coens squeeze us without mercy in a vise of tension and suspense, but only to force us to look into an abyss of our own making.
While certainly not for all tastes or viewers, this is filmmaking at or at least very near its highest level of efficiency and skill.
Tomatometer It has the perfect mixture of suspense, humor, and compelling performances.
