No Country for Old Men 
Time as an Assasin
4/4 stars

No Country for Old Men is a 2007 neo-western/thriller directed by Joel and Ethan Coen, based on the novel of the same name by Cormac McCarthy and starring Tommy Lee Jones, Javier Bardem, and Josh Brolin. This bleak, nihilistic tale tells a story of morality, causality, and the inevitability of death. One day while hunting, Llewelyn Moss finds the aftermath of a drug deal gone wrong: most of the gang members dead and a briefcase containing 2 Million dollars. The only survivor begs Llewelyn for water, but he ignores him and leaves with the money. That night, haunted by guilt, he returns to the scene to deliver water to the dying man, only to find out that he’s already dead. This simple act of consciousness leads to his downfall, as it alerts the ruthless assassin Anton Chigurh (who is looking for the money) of his existence and things start to spiral into chaos. In the middle of all this is Sheriff Ed Tom Bell, who is trying to make sense of all the mess and come to terms with the world changing around him.

This Coen Brothers masterpiece is a complex examination of themes such as death, chance, and free will. Llewelyn’s story begins with a choice, an immoral one: taking the money that doesn’t belong to him and leaving a man to die. It is, however, his next choice, the moral and righteous one, which seals his fate. He could have taken the money and left with his wife Carla Jean without looking back, he would have been saved from everything that unfolds. Later on, we see another instance in which a perceivably moral choice leads to negative results for him. Llewelyn fights, stands his ground, and keeps true to his moral code, but in the end is this what dooms him.
