Film premiere in Coen ‘Country’

'Old Men' screens in Hollywood

At Sunday’s El Capitan preem for “No Country for Old Men,” one guest called the Coen brothers pic “blood poetry”; another said it was “Javier Bardem as the Terminator”; and Curtis Hanson described it as “grim and violent but grounded in humanity.”

In fact, the Cannes fave was called just about everything but “the feel good movie of the year” as the aud gathered at the Hollywood Roosevelt after-party.

Joel Coen might have been using understatement when he said “at a certain level it’s a chase film that goes to places most chase films don’t go. If you’re not uptight about how chase movies usually end, you’ll be all right with this.”

“The film works on so many different levels,” said Miramax topper Daniel Battsek. “It’s a dissertation on good and evil, and it’s about the essence of the American Southwest,” he added.

“It’s about fate,” said pic’s Josh Brolin. “And that’s not a light subject.”
