Barry Ronge quote iconBloody great.

BBC
Paul Arendt quote iconWith 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 quote iconMany 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.

eye Weekly
Jason Anderson quote iconEasily the Coens’ least self-indulgent and most satisfying outing since The Big Lebowski.

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconIf 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.

Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconThe 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.

ScreenIt
quote iconWhile certainly not for all tastes or viewers, this is filmmaking at or at least very near its highest level of efficiency and skill.
