No Country for Old Men

Like many, I was unable to turn away from this exquisitely spun yarn by these Brothers Coen and yet…the telling of it left me only with dread.  And the dread does not feel the same as the Brothers Grimm warning us to stay out of the dark forest for the sake of our own preservation. Is more akin to Hieronymus Bosh, leaving us irreparably lost, with no way out.  These brothers seal off by the credit roll every, even the most minute portal of escape for the human heart.  And in that made mine flutter, a doomed and captured animal.
