So tense, loved it

Great acting, great storyline and probably most notable, best soundtrack ever (virtually no music and long periods of silence, I love it!). This makes for a real tense watch and it fits the film perfectly. The film, which is based off a novel of the same name from 2005, does a great job staying true to almost every part of the book, including the ending who may upset or confuse some (ala Sopranos finale'). Javier Bardem plays such a great role as villian, and yet with some added humor here and there. If his character (Chigurh) doesn't creep you out, I'm not sure what will. There are slight traces of humor throughout the movie, but it's done in a classic subtle way. Josh Brolin keeps the movie rolling as we follow him throughout with his portrayal of a hunter who's stumbled upon another world/lifestyle. Surprisingly, this was my first Coen brothers movie and I can't wait to see some of their older films after watching this classic film. I predict lots of Oscar buzz for this one.
