In as much as the movie has little visual kinetics like other films, it tells a dramatic and extraordinary story in the simplest and uninflected shots. Furthermore, No Country for Old Men has more sequences of suffocating…

    Seminar Paper: No Country For Old Men In No Country For Old Men there is an uncanny symmetry between the behaviors and decisions of the film’s lead characters.

What a character is perceived as is often different from what he actually is, you can expect this from an author like Cormac McCarthy.

    There are a lot of similarities between “No Country for Old Men” and “Fargo”. The opening scene of NCFOM where Anton Chigurh strangles the cop to death instantly reminded me of when Gaear Grimsrud in Fargo shoots and kills the police officer in the head after only getting stopped for a minor traffic incident. “Money is the root of all evil” is a one of the common themes both “No Country for Old Men” and “Fargo” share. There is also a small time cop whose experience and intelligence pieces…
