Synoposis: The Coen Brothers deliver a sizzling and supercharged action-thriller with No Country for Old Men, based on the novel by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Cormac McCarthy. Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin), a down-on-his-luck Vietnam vet, stumbles across an illicit fortune and decides to keep it, setting off an unstoppable chain of violence. When Moss discovers a drug deal gone bad in the West Texas desert, he decides to keep the two million dollars he finds there and hit the road. In short order, both Ed Tom Bell (Tommy Lee Jones), the local sheriff, and Anton Chigurh (Javier Bardem), one of the most frighteningly amoral psychopaths in film history, are on his trail and Moss is scrambling to stay one step ahead of the law—and avoid a gruesome fate at Chigurh’s hands.

Some Thoughts on the DVD:
The new three-disc collector’s set is made for diehard fans of the film, but Brolin’s unauthorized behind-the-scenes featurette has its funny moments as Brolin and Bardem reveal the negatives of working with the Coens, in candid interviews that may or may not be put-ons. There also are Q&As with the Coens and a fascinating “making of” documentary. The third disc is a digital copy that can be downloaded to watch on the go.
