No Country for Old Men


Aku nonton film ini karena penasaran. Gimana nggak? Dapet penghargaan oscar: Best Achievement in Directing (Ethan Coen dan Joel Coen),
Best Motion Picture of the Year (Scott Rudin, Ethan Coen, Joel Coen)
Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role (Javier Bardem)
Best Writing, Screenplay Based on Material Previously Produced or Published (Joel Coen Ethan Coen )

Waktu aku nulis review ini peringkatnya no 54 dari 250 film terbaik sepanjang masa. (Fargo, film Coen brothers sebelumnya yang pernah aku tonton, rangking 114 dari 250).

Filmnya menceritakan 3 orang, Ed Tom Bell (Tommy Lee Jones), mewakili orang yang sangat baik, Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin), mewakili orang yang nanggung, manusiawi, tergoda uang haram tapi punya nurani, dan Anton Chigurh (Javier Bardem) yang mewakili iblis berwujud manusia, psikopat akut.

Sinematografinya cukup bagus, kalimat-kalimatnya mengandung humor dan cerdas, tapi juga kasar, mirip di Fargo. Coen Brothers pasti juga rada-rada kayak Robert Rodriguez dan Quentin Tarrantino. Mereka sutradara kawakan yang doyan gore, alias darah bertumpahan.

Ceritanya menarik, cuma sayang, kenapa film-film tahun 2007 yang menyabet banyak penghargaan bertaburan darah ya. Aku lebih prefer kayak Atonement deh. Cape lihat darah terus. Masih mending Dances with Wolves, Life is Beautiful, dsb.

Beberapa dialog yang lumayan lucu:

Llewelyn Moss: If I don’t come back, tell mother I love her.
Carla Jean Moss: Your mother’s dead, Llewelyn.
Llewelyn Moss: Well then I’ll tell her myself.

Nervous Accountant: Are you going to shoot me?
Anton Chigurh: That depends. Do you see me?

Wendell: We goin’ in?
Ed Tom Bell: Gun out and up.
Wendell: [Wendell draws his pistol] What about yours?
Ed Tom Bell: I’m hidin’ behind you.

Carla Jean Moss: Llewelyn?
Llewelyn Moss: Yeah?
Carla Jean Moss: What are you doing, baby?
Llewelyn Moss: I’m going out.
Carla Jean Moss: Going where?
Llewelyn Moss: There’s something I forgot to do, but I’ll be back.
Carla Jean Moss: And what are you going to do?
Llewelyn Moss: I’m fixin’ to do something dumber than hell, but I’m going anyways.

Carla Jean Moss: Where’d you get the pistol?
Llewelyn Moss: At the gettin’ place.
Carla Jean Moss: Did you buy that gun?
Llewelyn Moss: No. I found it.
Carla Jean Moss: Llewelyn!
Llewelyn Moss: What? Quit hollerin’.
Carla Jean Moss: What’d you give for that thing?
Llewelyn Moss: You don’t need to know everything, Carla Jean.
Carla Jean Moss: I need to know that.
Llewelyn Moss: You keep runnin’ that mouth I’m gonna’ take you in the back and screw ya’.
Carla Jean Moss: Big talk.
Llewelyn Moss: Keep it up.
Carla Jean Moss: Fine. I don’t wanna’ know. I don’t even wanna’ know where you been all day.
Llewelyn Moss: That’ll work.

Carla Jean Moss: I got a bad feeling, Llewelyn.
Llewelyn Moss: Well I got a good feeling, so that should even out.

Carla Jean Moss: Sheriff, was that a true story about Charlie Walser?
Ed Tom Bell: Who’s Charlie Walser? Oh! Well… uh… a true story? I couldn’t swear to every detail but it’s certainly true that it is a story.

Carson Wells: Call me when you’ve had enough. I can even let you keep a little of the money.
Llewelyn Moss: If I was cuttin’ deals, why wouldn’t I go deal with this guy Chigurh?
Carson Wells: No no. No. You don’t understand. You can’t make a deal with him. Even if you gave him the money he’d still kill you. He’s a peculiar man. You could even say that he has principles. Principles that transcend money or drugs or anything like that. He’s not like you. He’s not even like me.
Llewelyn Moss: He don’t talk as much as you, I give him points for that.
