No Country For Old Men Podcast Discussion
I was so happy to see a commissioned podcast come around for one of the best movies of this century so far, No Country For Old Men. I did think it was interesting to see some different takes from Jim and A.Ron about some of the ambiguities in the movie from what I personally interpreted. A few:
1) I never thought Lllewelyn and Woody Harrelson's character came to a deal in Mexico. I took it as Llewelyn turning him down but Harrelson's character being saavy enough to intuit "Okay, I've tracked him down to Mexico, caught him off guard recovering from gunshots in a hospital, he clearly doesn't have the money on his person...how many different places could he have possibly have stashed it in between the hotel shootout and this hospital?" and then he deduces where Llewelyn tossed it.
2) I don't think that the hotel where Anton shoots Harrelson's character is the same one where the late night shootout took place.
3) I for some reason always did assume that Llewelyn joined the woman on the poolside for beer and that's why she was dead when the Sheriff arrived. In the scene, the section of the hotel with the pool is across the way from the rooms. If he rebuffed her requests to join her and just went to his room, how did she end up getting caught in crossfire out by the pool? I took it as he was poolside with her when the cartel arrived or showed themselves and that's how she got caught up in it.
Another great commissioned podcast though!
