Everybody in America, it seems, is reading Cormac McCarthy's THE ROAD. And now the Coen Brothers' adaptation of his neo-noir thriller NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN has, by all accounts, electrified the Cannes Film Festival.Variety's Todd McCarthy calls it "(a) scorching blast of tense genre filmmaking shot through with rich veins of melancholy, down-home philosophy and dark, dark humor ... a bloody classic of its type."Todd McCarthys' full review can be found here: http://www.variety.com/index.asp?layout=cannes2007&jump=review&reviewid=VE1117933677&cs=1 A round-up of other reviews, many of them raves, is here: http://daily.greencine.com/archives/003764.html I've been hearing good things about the movie for months. U.S. release is slated for the fall. Something to look forward to.Vincewww.vincekeenan.comPop culture, high and low, past and present.One day at a time.
