So I don't think I have an absolute favorite Genre, but I'm definitely into Crime Dramas.

I always seem to think about No Country for Old Men, and have compared it to probably too many films.

It has everything it needs. Creepy mysterious bad guy, bit's of relatable human drama. Some dramatic action scenes. Most of the characters have you rooting for them despite their obvious flaws and the fact that they're against each other.

Highly recommend.

The book is basically the screenplay. I haven't read it since the movie came out but the Cohen brothers changed very little

Everything the Coen Brothers do in their films is super particular and done on purpose. I'm glad to hear they didn't stray from the source, I admit I haven't read the book because I love the film so much, I was worried it would ruin it for me.

I will often read a book after seeing the movie because that's how basic I am. With No Country for Old Men I kept asking myself what the point of reading the book was since it's almost exactly like the movie.

Let’s talk about the big Lebowski and exemplifying film noir :) :) :)
