No Country for Old Men

Anybody get this movie? For what I know, the acting was great and the Javier Bardem guy's character is the frikkin' devil. Other than that, what's the point? Say No to Drugs??

The point is there is no point. Why should every movie has morals and messages? This is one of very few movies where the likely actually happens at the end. After all, nice guys always finish last.

If I remember right in the bonus material the director tells what the movie is about and when he explains it the whole thing makes since.

The message I grasped is this - next time I'm hunting antelope in the West Texas desert and run across a grisly scene of an obvious drug deal gone bad and a satchel full of money, make sure ALL those MFers are DEAD, RIGHT NOW! Probably a good idea to switch money bags, too.
I told my wife that when he found that one guy alive in the truck but then he went off to follow the tracks of the guy who got away with the money. Better not leave anybody at a scene like that who can identify you.
And why did Woody Harrelson's character just go to his room when Javier Bardem's character walked up behind him on the stairs? I guess he already had the shotgun on him - but if you know the guy is a psychopath then there's no talking with him.

I have it, I liked it in theatre and wanted to add to the collection. I like the mind games that are exchanged, always trying to stay one step ahead. Javier was one of the most interesting villain characters i know of.
