Reviews


  • Kevin Maher (Little White Lies)

    Just as the movie is beginning to conform to genre expectations (like The Treasure of the Sierra Madre meets Fargo), the Coens have the guts, and indeed the smarts, to pull it in an entirely different direction.

  • Matthew Lucas (The Dispatch)

    An unexpected sucker-punch of a movie - raw, gritty and deeply humanistic.

  • Christopher Orr (The New Republic)

    McCarthy's ferocious tale gives the Coens room to unleash their cinematic gifts, but keeps them from wandering too far afield and losing themselves in the marshes of technical prowess or easy irony.
