Llewelyn Moss stumbles onto a drug deal gone monumentally wrong while hunting in the parched Texas scrubland near the Mexico border. A satchel filled with $2 million seems to be a ship finally arrived, and he dreams of moving his wife Carla Jean out of the trailer park and into the good life. It isn't long before he's being tracked by Anton Chigurh, a psychopathic "debt collector." Sheriff Bell sets out to find Llewelyn, not so much for the propriety of recovering the money but to protect one of his citizens from Chigurh, an evil like nothing Bell has ever seen. The border is a hard land, yet Bell finds that the reflexive murders Chigurh inflicts upon others transforms the lonely vistas, somber deserts, and austere mountains into something horrendous--into no country for old men--or for young ones

Joel and Ethan Coen by R. Barton Palmer( Book )
2 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
"With landmark films such as Fargo, O Brother Where art Thou?, Blood Simple, and Raising Arizona, the Coen brothers have achieved both critical and commercial success. Proving the existence of a viable market for "small" films that are also intellectually rewarding, their work has exploded generic conventions amid rich webs of transtextural references. In Joel and Ethan Coen, R. Barton Palmer argues that the Coen oeuvre also forms a central element in what might be called postmodernist filmmaking. Mixing high and low cultural sources and blurring genres like noir and comedy, the use of pastiche and anti-realist elements in films such as The Hudsucker Proxy and Barton Fink clearly fit the postmodernist paradigm. Palmer argues that for a full understanding of the Coen brothers unique position within film culture, it is important to see how they have developed a new type of text within general postmodernist practice that Palmer terms commercial/independent. Analyzing their substantial body of work from this "generic" framework is the central focus on this book."--Book cover
