Roger Ebert, one of my favorite critics says, "This movie is a masterful evocation of time, place, character, moral choices, immoral certainties, human nature and fate. It is also, in the photography by Roger Deakins, the editing by the Coens and the music by Carter Burwell, startlingly beautiful, stark and lonely. As McCarthy does with the Judge, the hairless exterminator in his "Blood Meridian" (Ridley Scott's next film), and as in his "Suttree," especially in the scene where the riverbank caves in, the movie demonstrates how pitiful ordinary human feelings are in the face of implacable injustice. The movie also loves some of its characters, and pities them, and has an ear for dialog not as it is spoken but as it is dreamed." (link...)
I ahbor violence. Sometimes I think McCarthy is a "guy's writer" as some chick-flick writers are for women. But I love good acting and good plot-making, so I know I'll have to go see this movie.
As my good friend Matsu used to say," Just close your eyes. I'll tell you when the bloody parts are coming."
