No Country for Old Men

Saw the movie "No Country for Old Men" last night through a haze of wine and good food. The devil incarnate role of Anton Chigur played by Spanish actor Javier Bardem is one of most chilling ones. According to me, it even surpassed that of Antony Hopkins in "Silence of the lambs". Tommy Lee Jones as the Sheriff brings an authentic feel to his role as usual. This may have also been because he belongs to the West Texas region which forms the backdrop of the movie. Kelly Macdonald despite being Scottish manages to carry the role of the Texan wife to the hilt.
A must see movie for fans of the Coen brothers.
