No Country For Old Men, the new movie from Joel and Ethan Coen, based on the novel by Cormac McCarthy, hits theaters in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Boston today. With positively glowing reviews from Roger Ebert, Keith Phipps of the Onion A.V. Club, and Anthony Lane in the New Yorker, you just know its going to be sweet. Ebert already has plans to buy it on DVD. Other than "Knocked Up," its difficult to think of a movie we at CSD have been this excited to see.
In further Cormac McCarthy news, it was recently announced that William Monahan (screenwriter for The Departed) and Sir Ridley Scott are adapting the McCarthy's classic novel Blood Meridian, which is tenatively scheduled to be released in 2009.
