I don’t know what happened to No Country For Old Men, Joel and Ethan Coen’s adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s novel, at Cannes. All I heard about the film was positive, positive, positive, and then the Cannes jury ignored it.
The trailer for the film has appeared on Variety, and I have to say that it only reinforces the things that I have heard about the film. The two and a half minutes fill me with a hope that no Coen film has for years, now – it looks like they have found a kindred spirit in McCarthy, and have weaved their usual black humor in with his expansive landscapes and terse characters.
