No Country for Old Men

Holy freakin' smokes.
If you've never seen it, go.
If you're in Edmonton when you do, tell me. I'll come watch it again.

You're kidding me! John and I watched it last night. He loved it. Me, not so much. After it was over, I asked him if he would find out if any females out there liked it. I guess I have my answer. I feel very unliterary and unsmart, but I just didn't get it. John says I wasn't watching closely enough.(I had the laptop out) Of course I didn't like "All the Pretty Horses" either, and I admit I've never read C. McCarthy.
I will say that I loved "Oh Brother where art thou?" Does that count for anything?

I did make it to the end of the book, Angela. I posted my response to it here: Cause I Believe in You: Floundering

About No Country for Old Men we watched it last night. Holy smokes is right! It belongs on a huge wall all of its own - a Masterpiece!
