Well, I bought No Country For Old Men sight unseen based on the whole Oscar thing and the rave reviews it got from everybody. Now I sure wish I hadn't.
I've never seen a movie shift from awesome to WHAT THE **** WERE THEY THINKING? so fast. The ending sucked balls. SUCKED. BALLS. I know its arty and metaphorical and cerebral and all that that good shit, and is basically Tommy Lee Jones' character's statement on how the world is going to hell in a handbasket, but seriously, there is no payoff at all at the end of this, just disjointed crap. I couldn't believe the protagonist was killed OFF SCREEN by characters barely introduced to the story. Events were deliberately foreshadowed and then... nothing happened. It's neat a couple of times, but when it's done over and over, it's just like repeatedly stiffling a sneeze. AND WHO WAS DRIVING THE OTHER GODDAMN CAR? Dude just lurches down the street with his compound fracture and never even has a look.
Annoying and a huge letdown. I truly feel cheated by that shitsucking ending.
