Special features on include up-front previews and the following featurettes: The Making Of No Country For Old Men (25 minutes), Working With The Coens (six minutes), and Diary Of A Country Sheriff (seven minutes).
Llewelyn Moss (Brolin), a Vietnam veteran hunting pronghorns in the West Texas desert, stumbles upon a scene of carnage in the middle of nowhere. There are several abandoned vehicles, even more dead bodies, a dead pitbull, and a truck bed filled with heroin at the scene. Moss discovers that one of the corpses holds a satchel containing two-million dollars and decides to take the money and run. Before long, a psychopath named Anton Chigurh (Bardem) is hot on Moss' trail to reclaim the cash that he believes is rightfully his. Even though the Texas desert is No Country For Old Men, it is up to aging Sheriff Bell (Jones) to try to save Moss from Chigurh's deadly aim. No Country For Old Men won Academy Awards
The anamorphically enhanced 2.34:1 DVD exhibits a pleasing image with deep blacks and good color balance. Resolution is very well preserved, but fine details can look soft. Fleshtones have a natural hue that helps create a sense of realism. Shadow delineation is nicely rendered, assisting in the creation of a solid sense of dimensionality. Pixelation can be noticed at times, and shimmering artifacts are visible on occasion. Edge enhancement is fairly heavy. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #8 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
Widescreen Review summarizes the information I need to make informed decisions about DVD purchases. My DVD library is growing by leaps and bounds, and it's great to have WSR let me know when I may be disappointed with a disc before I buy it. I also like the new DVD release list to let me know what's ahead. On top of that, reading WSR is a great way to keep abreast of new technologies. Sometimes the interviews with those who bring these technologies to market give more insight into the overall demands and future directions of the market.
