‘No Country for Old Men’ Is The Western I Was Looking For

Growing up I was the biggest Country Western fan. I was (and still am) a HUGE fan of Gunsmoke and I loved Bonanza. Every weekday I would turn on my television around noon, watch a few episodes of Gunsmoke, watch a couple of episodes of Bonanza, and I was in bliss.

Recently I have veered away from Country Westerns but my love for the genre hasn’t faded in the slightest. So, on Thanksgiving night, after a day of feasting, watching sports, and spending time with the people that I love, my family and I all watched on No Country for Old Men for the first time. I was looking for a good movie that would end the evening with a bang and I ran across this film which I had heard was really good.

For two hours my family and I were sucked into a film so dark and completely riveting that by the end of the movie we couldn’t help but herald the movie’s quality. It was way better than I could’ve ever expected and its story was utterly captivating, in a slightly traumatic fashion.
