No Country for Old Men

No Country for Old Men ★★★★★

This is the film. The film that cemented my admiration for the art of films. The film that got me into filmmaking and without it, I don't know if I'd be where I am, with the people I'm with today.

I first watched this probably around age 12 and my mind was shattered. I had no idea what it was about but I was certain that what I just witnessed was a masterpiece. Now, 5 years on, I still have no idea what it's about but that's what's so special about it for me. I won't look up No Country For Old Men Explained and I won't ask others what their interpretations are, because to me it will always be better as this mystical, intangible thing.

My hopes are that when I, myself become an old man and I have a full life of experience behind me that it will just click with me one day and I will finally understand No Country For Old Men.
