Synopsis

Based on the bestselling book by Cormac McCarthy, the film chronicles how a drug-deal-went-wrong changes the lives of various criminals and the local sheriff in a small town bordering Mexico.

Our take

The Coens are at tnhe top of their game adapting the stark, dog-eat-dog world of author Cormac McCarthy to the big screen, and Javier Bardem creates a villain for the ages. An enthralling, minimalist masterpiece, and the most sinister film to win the Oscar’s top prize since Silence of the Lambs.
