I’ve got to think long and hard[ll] to remember a cinematic serial killer as thoroughly hardbody as the character Anton Chigurh played by JAVIER BARDEM. Imagine your boy Jason from ‘Friday the 13th’ with a shotgun and a really bad 1970’s haircut. BARDEM’s character is even badder than that too because when he speaks he says crazy shit. He chooses whether niggas live or die by the flip of a coin, but mostly he just kills at will.
The movie BARDEM is starring in is called ‘No Country For Old Men’. The movie was adapted from a book of the same title by the COEN brothers. These are the cats that made that cult classic film noir joint ‘Blood Simple’. I liked their shit ‘The Big Lebowski’ and ‘Raising Arizona’ too. The COEN brothers have a penchant for dark humor and they keep the bodybags filled up as well. This flick is in keeping with their popular themes.
‘No Country For Old Men’ is set around a normally sleepy Texas town that goes to shit when a major drug deal goes wrong. TOMMY LEE JONES nails his role as the unwittingly omniscient town sheriff who remains one step behind the mayhem. JOSH BROLIN’s character is the dude that is unlucky enough to stumble upon the suitcase stuffed with $2 million dollars that was to be used in the aformentioned narcotics transaction. Instead of leaving the drugs, guns and money to the scumbags that previously owned them, BROLIN’s character decides to keep the money. This act places him and everyone that he comes in contact with squarely in the crosshairs of a ruthless hitman.
JAVIER BARDEM plays the greatest personification of evil I can remember seeing in a movie in a looooong time. Worse than Darth Vader even. You see, Vader was totally evil, but this character Anton Chigurh is totally evil, AND totally insane. He walks around with a tank full of compressed air and a cattle stunner bolt gun that he shoots into peoples brains. WTF? But when its time to go all in and go in hard Chigurh pulls out the 12gauge Mausberg with a barrel silencer. WTF!?!? Fools are getting flat blasted in this joint at every turn.
I think I will go see this flick again this weekend. It’s that good. Plus Saturday is supposed to be shitty and raining. Sounds like the perfect day to go ‘plexing. Fuck an ‘American Gangster’ bullshit. ‘No Country For Old Men’ is that gangsta shit for real. How much you want to bet that rappers start name dropping Anton Chigurh? That nigga was str8 KILLMATIC!
