Ratings & Reviews

  • The Coens' typically superior filmmaking sustains the electrifying mood for most of the picture, but they are undone by being too faithful to the source novel by Cormac McCarthy. show more

  • An eerily quiet, bracingly bloody, and expertly laid-out adaptation of the Cormac McCarthy novel. show more

  • If watching movie violence is cathartic, then this film amounts to heavy therapy. It's much more than that, however. This is the best film the Coen brothers have done since their glory days of "Fargo" and "The Big Lebowski," maybe the best they've done, period. show more
