So yeah, I saw it again. A few things I picked up for sure tonight:

1. Bell's speech in the opening of the film is incredibly important. I wish I could find a transcript online somewhere.

2. I definitely believe Chigurh was in the same room as Bell at the end of the film. There's a lot to support that. In fact I think the only thing that makes it ambiguous is that when Bell finally opens the door, Chigurh isn't standing behind it, but there's a large completely black corner on the other side of the door where he could have easily moved when Bell was drawing his gun. You can even see them looking at each others' reflections in the brass of the open door lock that Chigurh had blown out.

3. Watching this film while actually knowing what you're really watching is a whole different (more rewarding) experience. Definitely try to see it again Laz.

Nice observations. But more importantly, what did your date think?

Actually, don't answer that.

I like that LMP's Mom chaperones you to the movies while Laz is out with your Mom.

Lance (and anyone else who wants to read more about No Country), there's a movie/media blog I frequently read, and the guy who runs it just put up a very interesting post about NCFOM and the Coens' work.

Well worth the read.

Read the book, Laz. Read a lot of Cormac. Read my post about it. Go back in time. I'm seeing the film in a few days with my Dad; we're both excited to see it. I'll tell him "Dad, Lazarus from the U2 fansite was not overwhelmed by the film" and see how he reacts.

(Holy shit. That was very spoilery.)


Caught Juno last night. A+, everyone. A+. Even though I hated Hard Candy, Ellen Page is brilliant in this one. And George Michael and Michael Bluth are in it. So yea.

Lance, according to what I read on another website, in the book Bell is imagining Chigurh behind the door, and for some reason the Coens elected to portray this in a somewhat literal fashion (though it's obviously still open to interpretation).

Apparently Bell realizing afterwards that he was hoping Chigurh wasn't actually in there is the final thing that convinces him he needs to retire--because he doesn't feel capable of meeting this new manifestation of evil.

So, I think I am going to break my own rules and watch a bootleg copy of No Country for Old Men. It still isn't in theaters around here and I don't know how I will go with a baby.

That was one of my more considerable theories, and I'm not surprised that's the novel's presentation of that scene.

Cool. I'm happy that's the "real" interpretation, although the Coens certainly leave it up for debate.
