Hot on the DVD Trail: Dark Oscar Nominated Films Hit DVD! First Up: No Country for Old Men!

There have been a flurry of new films coming out on DVD– and this includes Oscar winning and Oscar nominated films. What’s really interesting is the timing of several films being released at one time– 3 Oscar nominated films (* 2 are winners in different categories) that are very dark in tone, theme and the acting – both in the key performers and the cast — is totally superb!
No Country for Old Men was a stunning ensemble film that was entirely dark based on the book by Cormac McCarthy.

It’s about a serial killer played by Javier Bardem who won for Best Supporting Actor. I won’t give away the plot because it’s key other than the cast includes Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin, Woody Harrelson and Kelly Macdonald. It’s a distinctly dark movie about cat and mouse, life and death at the toss of a coin and mercy is a word that is never heard. It’s not a speedy movie– but it sustains the tension throughout- enough to drain the life from you.
Definitely not for the faint of heart or those who want a “fun” movie, it’s a great one for serious thriller fans.
Here’s a trailer on the movie:

Not for the faint of heart!! Be forewarned!!
