NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN (2007)
The Coens return to form with this relentlessly suspenseful thriller that has one of the all-time scariest serial killers in film history. Without any use of score, they create chilling sequences out of silence. The writing, cinematography and sound are so precisely realized. Truly expert filmmaking. The third act is undeniably uncompromising (almost unsatisfactory). Yet utterly compelling and unforgettable.
Director: Joel Coen
