Review from the Movie Tavern off of Hulen:
1) The first half of the movie was great. Absolutely great.
2) The second half can best be described by a comment I saw on IMDB:
I am a 40 year old movie buff Academy Award trivia expert I own over 700 movies I've been a member here for 6 years And I have a college degree. Maybe I ate too many milk duds or something but it went right over my head.Then again, I didn't think much of Pulp Fiction the first time I saw it. I'll give No Country another chance.
If you are looking for a Donnie Darko, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind MUST SEE A SECOND OR THIRD TIME TO FULLY UNDERSTAND kind of movie then go for it!
If you think you are going to see a Titanic, The Green Mile or Silence Of the Lambs kind of movie where the plot unfolds at a normal pace and doesn't make you search for answers and meaning then don't go see this thing.
Again, not a bad movie. Great acting, cinematography, pace.... the works... just incredibly difficult to understand after the first half.
In fact the first half is very good, suspenseful.. second half does not fulfill. Leaves you hanging and wanting more.
