No Country for Old Men is a western action film about Llewellyn, a man who comes across a brief case filled with 2 million dollars while out hunting. He brings the briefcase back to his house and plans to make a run for it. He sends his wife to go stay with her mother and he finds a motel to stay in. Unfortunately what he does not know is that the money contains a tracking device and that he is being hunted by one of the craziest killers.

Best part of story, including ending: This is such a great movie because there is no music throughout the entire movie which adds this eeriness to the film. The silence at certain moments also gives much suspense to the audience.

Best scene in story: My favorite scene is at the very end when Tommy Lee Jones is telling his wife about the dreams he had last night. The simpleness of the dreams paralleled with the action and drama of the movie really adds to the after thinking of the film and keeps you wanting more.
