Some people might not be able to comprehend this magnificent chef-d'oeuvre by the masterful Coen brothers. But after multiple viewings, I can conclude that this is no movie, but an objet d'art. I know it's a cliché but its true. I admit that when I first saw this movie, I, like many people, did not follow the film quite so well and was definitely upset with the ending.
After first viewing it, I felt that there was something missing.
Therefore, I decided to view the film over and over again, paying close attention to the dialogue and to the story itself. After careful analysis of the movie, I determined that it was truly not a movie like I had mentioned previously, but an examination, a study on a character so malicious and sinister that there is no understanding his wickedness. This character is played lustrously by Javier Bardem.
The story centers mainly around him and the satchel of money.
Anton Chigurh( Bardem), is tracking down the stolen money which was taken by Llewelyn Moss played by Josh Brolin. Chigurh is not just interested in obtaining the money, but killing the person who took it just for “inconveniencing him". Tommy Lee Jones plays the sheriff looking for Chigurh to put him to justice. He never succeeds. I was moved by the lines that were spoken in the movie. The lines were brilliant, and spoken by equally brilliant actors that aptly uttered the words.
The film is flawless and constructed in such a way, that it applies suspense, thrills, and action whilst posting an examination of human villainy. The ending depicts Ed Tom Bell(Jones), talking about a dream he had in which he is the good in the world, but there will always be evil; evil that will not cease to be.
