No Country for Old Men released on Blu-ray and DVD on April 7th, from Miramax Films and Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment release. No Country for Old Men is a fairly modern-day, violent Western directed by Joel and Ethan Coen, starring Tommy Lee Jones, Javier Bardem, and Josh Brolin.
No Country for Old Men is a set in the desolate wilds of West Texas in 1980. Tommy Lee Jones stars as Sheriff Ed Bell, from a family of lawmen. Although Ed Bell is apparently the hero of No Country for Old Men, he is only in about 1/3 of the scenes and is never involved in any action. The film’s action revolves around Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin), who is a welder hunting near the Rio Grande. Llewelyn stumbles upon a circles of shot-up vehicles and corpses and finds a dying Mexican who asks for water. He also finds some bricks of heroin in the back of one truck. Realizing that he has found a drug deal gone bad, and that someone must have made it out alive, Llewelyn sets out to find the last man. He discovers a body holding a gun under a tree with a satchel full of money – two million dollars worth. Llewelyn Moss takes the satchel, drives home, and hides the money. However, Llewelyn feels guilty for leaving the dying man and can’t sleep, so he fills a jug with water and heads back to the scene of the massacre, knowing it is a bad idea.
Sure enough, after Llewelyn parks his truck and walks to the Mexican’s truck, he is chased by some people and a dog into a river where he barely escapes after shooting the dog. When he gets home, he packs his wife up and sends her out of town, knowing the drug dealers will be after him and the money.
In the meantime, the villain of No Country for Old Men, Anton Chigurh (Javier Bardem) strangles a sheriff’s deputy with his own handcuffs. Chigurh steals the deputy’s patrol car, then pulls another car over and murders the driver with a cattle gun. Chigurh next shows up when he the scene of the massacre after Llewelyn Moss has escaped. He kills the two men he is with, takes their transponder, and gets information from Moss’s truck.
