Plot: Llewellyn Moss (Josh Brolin)
is a trailer-living blue-collar welder, who, while out
hunting one day, comes across the scene of a drug deal
gone bad, complete with dead bodies, a pickup truck full
of heroin and a briefcase packed with over $2 million.
As Moss tries to figure out what to do with his find,
he realizes he is being hunted by the money’s owner,
a violent force of nature named Anton Chigurh (Javier
Bardem). Meanwhile, local sheriff Ed Tom Bell (Tommy
Lee Jones), one of the “Old Men” of the title,
begins to search for Moss and Chigurh, as the two men
quickly leave a wide swath of often-senseless violence
Perks: The Coen Brothers (of "Fargo" and
"O Brother" fame) get deadly serious and deeply philosophical with this
practically perfect adaptation of the Cormac
McCarthy modern western novel of the same name.
