No beer for old men

We watched No Country for Old Men last night.

The film depicted (very) graphic violence when such furthered the plot line, but implied the violence when that depiction would have been superfluous or gratuitous. The non-ending ending took this Western-murder-thriller into the (infinitely) broader enigma of life and its purpose.

The film indeed deserved its Oscar awards.

Near the conclusion, there is this line about beer:

Llewelyn Moss: "I know what beer leads to."
Woman sitting at motel pool: "Beer leads to more beer."

Afterwards, I sipped on one Dogfish Head 90-Minute IPA.


  1. good quote from a wonderful movie.

  2. If you'd seen it at the AFI Silver, you could have had a beer, albeit not a DFH, while you watched the movie. Yay AFI!
