I think Anton didnt mean that he was going to kill Moss. When he said that hes gonna get kill he didnt say exactly whos gonna kill him. I mean, Anton is an smart guy, he knows that once your being chased by mexican narcos your done. Actually, those are the ones who killed him...
He is one of the most bad ass villains in movie history. (that coin toss scene in the gas station is gold, btw.) I think that the part where he says “I can’t guarantee you that you can save yourself, because you can’t.” Is soooo underrated. Most villains in that situation would lie and say that as long as they get their money or what they want, the person will live, but not him. He is true to his word and negotiated as best as he felt he could. Haunting!! What a great film.
Holy shit. The reason why Anton looked shock after the call was because, the scene prior to this, he said he knew the money would be brought to him and placed at his feet. He was shocked that he was wrong.
No, he was shocked at all. The phone call proved him right. He said the money would be brought to him and on the phone Llewellyn said "you wont have to come looking for me" meaning he was going to come to Anton. His reaction was "told you so!".
Wrong. His reaction is "told you so!" Wells tried to get Anton to spare his life arguing he could help him get the money back. Anton told him the money would be brought to him. Llewellyn tell him "you won't have to come looking for me at all" proving Anton right.
His reaction isn't to the hangup or threats. Before Wells died he plead with Anton by saying he could help him get the money back. Anton didn't need his help as the phone call proved. His reaction was "told you so!".
Actually he was a match for him in the end. Anton was not actually able to kill him and nearly got himself killed chasing him.
The cartel caught up with Llewelyn Moss otherwise Anton may not have survived himself. The survival scene with Llewelyn getting chased by the pitbull should have been an indicator along with him stating his military service in Vietnam that he was just as dangerous as Anton.
@tabbypappy All moss had to do. Was NOT sit in front of his hotel door when Anton breaks in. A fucking Army vet is just gonna sit up right in front of a door that has a killer behind and he knows it.
He could have sat off to the side. Or used the bed as cover, then as the lock shoots out the door. Boom. A dead anton.
1 simple fuck up changes the course of the whole movie.
I always felt his best chance at taking out Anton was when they threw down at the hotel. Moss had the element of surprise;if he went toe to toe with Anton instead of running with the money the outcome would've been different, for sure.
I was bored and had time to kill on a Sunday evening when it was in the cinemas. Went and saw it even though I'm really not a "film guy" and had never heard of Bardem nor did I know anything from the film itself. Was just looking to kill a couple hours before going home. Blew my mind.
Had the same experience that summer with The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, too.
It's because I think Llewelyn thought he could take on Chigurh. He is a man of will, he believes if he is smart enough and strong enough he'll get through this.
Chigurh, on the other hand believes in fate and he understands he is superior in skills than Llewelyn
Agreed- it was completely foolish. He was refusing to see things as they were. Even if somehow he killed Chigurh, (which wasnt impossible)someone else would look for him. The cycle would continue until Moss and his wife were dead. He could have just saved his wife and made the whole ordeal stop.
J Silva hindsight bias really.
in a normal traditional movie, this could be perceived as badass as not negotiating with the bad guy before he wins the shootout against him, get his woman back and walks off with his money.
probably because his personality makes sense, seems real and motivation can be real.
Nothing like "ohh i'm loyal to my boss so i will bring money back to him" instead we are getting killer with own rules that we could use aswell. "corrupted man - bad guy/honorable man - good guy. (also threat is threat so everything is as simple as kid's mind).
This could have turned into one of the most epic and awesome endings of a movie. Moss turning the tables on Chigurh. Instead the movie took a dive after this point. I really like the movie, went out and read the book afterwards. But the movie ended poorly and strangely, with no clear point. It built to a climax that slowly melted instead of exploding like a supernova.
jimmy goody But again, without the philosophy the story wouldn't be nearly as good, it would just be another drop in the bucket thriller, it's what makes the movie, maybe a it gained more attention because of it's thriller aspects, majority of modern mover goers are fucking morons after all so a philosophical film with a nihilistic tone and theme set to a western backdrop wouldn't sell a lot of people on its own if it didn't have the suspense and thrill, but the movie itself has very little action, any sort of standoff or gunfight is few and far between, relying heavily on visuals and dialog througut the vast majority of it, so it's not as if it's some shitty action flick with a message thrown on for no reason, everything is very deliberate and all works towards the goal of delivering said message. I have not seen The Counselor but considering it's general reviews I'd say it didn't work because it didn't do what this did. Knowing modern Ridley Scott and the senile hack he's become, it's likely everything was very on the nose and shallow, badly presented through the script to screen transition.
Ku Ku Klock
Not another book another film ( the Counselor) What I mean is that has plenty of Cormac Mcarthy philosophy and deeper meanings in the plot but everyone thought it was rubbish. It didn't have the other stuff that made No country so good.
If you read the book you'll notice it's an almost exact adaptation. The Coen Brother's were very faithfull and included the philosophy. But IMO the story attracted them because it is a story they are brilliant at- an ordinary Joe getting more out of his depth( Blood Simple, Fargo)
Honestly mate read some Cormac Mcarthy they are brilliant but you might find yourself skipping over the philosophy.
jimmy goody The entire point if the story was summarized in those monologues, had this movie not hsd the message it did, if it did not end and play out the way it did, then it would be forgettable, it wouldn't be regarded as a classic and it would have lost the oscar the There Will Be Blood in a heartbeat. Those philosophical ramblings is what ties the movie together, it is the entire reason behind the story, to look at it as just some thriller, or to regard it's way of adding a point with it's ending and metaphors as pretentious is just ignorant, it certainly wasn't slapped on as the nihilistic metaphors appear everywhere and heavily in Anton himself. And I don't see how because another book is underrated it somehow effects this discussion.
It's hard for me to pick a favourite. Between Burn After Reading, Fargo, No Country For Old Men, The Big Lebowski and most of their other films, they've released lots of gold. Plus the Fargo series is pretty amazing too, especially season 3. That season stuck with me hard.

Bricolajul a ajuns in Romania in urma cu aproximativ 10 ani, insa in Statele Unite si in statele occidentale acest concept este mai vechi, si isi are originile la inceputul anilor ’50. Bricolajul se refera la capacitatea oamenilor de a crea sau repara diverse obiecte fara a apela la ajutor specializat.
Primul catalog de bricolaj pentru renovarea locuintei a aparut in 1968. Acesta a nascut conceptul de bricolaj care sta la baza lanturilor de magazine din zilele noastre. De la covoare si perdele, pana la mobilier si prefabricate, bricolajul se refera la tot ce inseamna renovarea unei locuinte in aceasta acceptiune.
Pe orlo.ro gasesti toate cataloagele de bricolaj, de la cei mai importanti comercianti. Catalog Dedeman, Catalog Praktiker, Catalog Baumax, Catalog Bricostore, Catalog Ambient si altii.
In Romania retelele de magazine pentru bricolaj sau extins rapid, cel mai important comerciant din acest segment este Dedeman, care a pornit din orasul Bacau si a ajuns sa detina magazine in cele mai importante orase din tara.
