Easily the Coens' best outing since The Big Lebowski, their adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's gaunt neo-western has barely an ounce of fat on it. Josh Brolin is excellent as a down-on-his-luck dude who foolishly takes a whack of dough off some drug dealers he finds dead way out on a West Texas plain. Bardem is even better as a fate-obsessed psycho in a pageboy haircut who kills everyone in between him and the money. The Coens preserve the vein of fatalistic humour in McCarthy's original, as well as the inordinately high body count. (Jason Anderson)
