Its not as easy film to watch... or rather its not the usual standard sort of film where there's a logical plot development and story. Like I said, its like watching an accident. It sort of like happens - it doesn't make sense - but you just still have to watch.
There's plenty of violence so if you're sensitive- don't watch it.
I thought the Spanish actor, Javier Bardem, who played the psycho assassin - was superb and gives a bone chilling performance. Even if you hate cult films - you have to go watch this movie just for his performance, totally frightening - pure damn nasty evil - a force of malevolent nature.
The ending - with Jones giving a soliloquy on death - doesn't make sense but adds to the atmosphere of the film. If you aren't more lateral minded - you won't like it.
But that is just one way of looking at it - another way to describe it - is a boring pretentious piece of crap by bored philosophy students dreamt up after a dope session.
Whilst such people would be analyzing each part of the film and attributing deep and meaningful conclusion or anti-conclusions to it, and discussing issues of fate and the supremacy of evil over good, most movie viewers - and I'm TALKING TO YOU JEREMY - would probably be wondering "If Hannibal Lector and Anton Chigurh were locked in the same cell, who would get out alive?"
