No Country for Old Men

No Country for Old Men ★★★★½

Javier Bardem’s character in this is so mysterious and great. Brad Pitt’s character in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood kind of reminded me of Bardem’s Anton. They are both badass, albeit one is evil and the other simply killed his wife, which if you have a wife you would know, is a totally fine and reasonable thing to do. We don’t really know much else about the two characters either, and, both Pitt and Bardem won Best Supporting Actor for their performances. So, it’d be cool if they made a joint sequel to No Country for Old Men and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. It could be a Coen/Tarantino threesome about what happens to these two dudes after their respectable films end and how they are forced to team up and work together and such. Cliff and Anton go on a cross country adventure, drinking beers and listening to ZZ Top. They sew up each other‘s wounds and find out what friendship is really all about. Mr. Booth would be a little older of course if this takes place in the early eighties, but I think that Tarantino sandwich on Coen bread would figure out a way.
