We are on record (see AT's last post) as fans of the new Coen brothers film, No Country for Old Men, now playing in Tulsa. Today we noticed that Oklahoma City's weekly newspaper, the Oklahoma Gazette, has praised the film as well.
Gazette reviewer Phil Bacharach writes that the film is a "brutal, harrowing and ultimately mesmerizing tale of Texas-sized murder and greed." The Gazette headline even refers to the movie as "masterpiece."
Perhaps it is, though we're sure that not everyone will enjoy this story, which doesn't try too hard to tie up its loose ends.
Bacharach also praises the acting of Tommy Lee Jones, Javier Bardem, and Josh Brolin, who "evokes the spirit of a young Nick Nolte."
Serious film students ought to check out No Country for Old Men.
