I hope, if time permits, to jot here a few thoughts about the film before long. For now, I thought I'd direct readers to my recent essay, "The Art of Reading Cormac McCarthy," which appeared in the last issue of Poets & Writers magazine, and which I've just posted in full at my main author website. You'll find the article linked under "Shorter Works."

No Country for Old Men
This weekend found me in a movie theatre, transfixed for the better part of two hours by the Coen brothers' very worthy adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's No Country for Old Men. It's been a long time since a film has gripped me as intensely as this one did. An especially odd experience, given that adaptations often addle.
