No Country For Old Men and the You Know What’s Going To Happen, Carson Moment

The One Line Summary: A bag of money causes all sorts of mayhem as the hitman hired to find it discovers fun and exciting ways to use a cattle gun. 


The Two-Line Blurb: When you find two million dollars on the body of a dead man in the middle of a drug deal gone oh-so-horribly wrong in the Texas desert, there is really only one option. Leave it the f*ck alone.


The Three-Line Set-up: Carson Wells (Woody Harrelson) is a laid-back, easy-going hitman trying to track down the haircut challenged Anton Chigurh (Javier Bardem) and recover the missing drug money. Thing is, it is Chigurh who has tracked down Wells. Now it’s time for a friendly chi-chat in a dark hotel room with lots of sweating and a nasty silenced shotgun.


The Four-Line Moment: The Coen brothers are notorious for creating tension, and this moment pretty much tests the limits of bladder control as the stoic, icy Chigurh drags out the inevitable with his snarky attitude and shiny shotgun. Carson knows the jig is up but does his best to squirm his way out.  We all know what’s coming. It’s just a matter of knowing when to close our eyes.

The Five-Word Review: Walk away from the money.
