No Country for Old Men
No Country for Old Men invites us into the violent world of Texas in 1980. Two men play a vicious cat and mouse game concerning some money left aside from a drug deal gone bad. Anton Chigurh (Javier Bardem) is tasked with recovering the sum of money that Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin) has recovered and hoped to take for his family. Moss runs from the ruthless Chigurh across Texas and through a desolate desert landscape until there is no more escape. Though the film isn’t all about the time period it’s set in, it’s a period film that fully manages to encapsulate the era with the setting, clothing, and especially the haircuts!
