Films I saw

"No Country For Old Men" is tense like "Blood Simple" and bleak like "Barton Fink". It is beautifully shot and written but harrowing to watch. In short, another fine Coen Brothers movie.

"The Darjeeling Limited" just proves how lucky we are to have Wes Anderson movies to look forward to. Views may differ, but mine is that he can do no wrong. His films contain so much; it is a privilege to bask in his shadows. (I have no idea what that means.) Conclusion: the critics are not always the right people to ask about these things.
