Bikewer;4276989This movie (last time I checked...) had generated over 800 comments on the IMDB page. There is always a certian amount of ambiguity with the Coen's stuff, but from my reading of the novel (about halfway through) it's pretty much dead-on.

I'm not one to overly analyze these things; looking for each little continuity error and out-of-place prop item. If it "works" as a whole, I'm usually happy.

From what I could tell they were extremely faithful to the book. In fact the last scene, where a just-retired Ed Tom, already at loose ends about what to do that day, tells his wife about the recurring dream of his father going ahead in the snowstorm to light a fire, is IIRC word-for-word the last para of the book.

Did the accountant guy who asked Chigurh "Are you going to shoot me?" die? Also, I was very happy for the old man in the gas station. I had written him off, but he lived! Yay!

Not sure about that guy... but I did like how they left some things to the imagination. Like when he checks his shoes leaving the wifes house... that was cool though. Also, I kept coming back to the first killing... the cop in the police station. They can really capture some powerful moments with just a camera shot... the marks left by the soles of their feet... brutul...

Who needs a gun when you have the Spectacular Pneumatic Frontal Lobe-Borer?
