I haven’t seen No Country For Old Men. It never came to Gozo last year. We don’t have a TV at the moment, and I’m disinclined to watch such a renowned film on my laptop. I’ll wait until we build our theatre room along with the rest of the house, I guess.
Anyhow, while researching ebooks last week, I happened upon this short interview between Cormac McCarthy and the Coen Brothers. An interview with McCarthy is a rare thing (according to Wikipedia, he sat for his first ever TV interview in 2007!), and it’s an enjoyable read:
C.M. But Miller’s Crossing is in that category. I don’t want to embarrass you, but that’s just a very, very fine movie.
J.C. Eh, it’s just a damn rip-off.
C.M. No, I didn’t say it wasn’t a rip-off. I understand it’s a rip-off. I’m just saying it’s good.
It’s about eight months old, but if you missed it and liked the movie, it’s worth reading.
