Joel and Ethan Coen Movies - No Country for Old Men

Operating his own private practice for more than 30 years as a licensed psychologist in Rockville, Maryland, Uzi Ben-Ami, Ph.D., is trained in a number of areas, including marriage and family counseling. Outside of work, Uzi Ben-Ami, Ph.D., enjoys taking time to enjoy interests such as movies by the Coen brothers.

Brothers Joel and Ethan Coen began making movies in the early 1980s, with their first movie, Blood Simple, released in 1984. Since that time they have produced a number of well-known films such as The Big Lebowski, Fargo, and O Brother, Where Art Thou?

Arguably one of the best movies produced by the Coen brothers is "No Country for Old Men." Based on the novel by Cormac McCarthy, the movie takes place in a bleak southern Texas setting and provides a study in self-imposed purgatory and of the way people can trap themselves in their own surroundings. The film doesn't include a typical music score and its dialogue is sparse, yet still reflects the Coen brothers’ unique style.
