In our annual quest to see all five Oscar Best Picture nominees, we went to see Michael Clayton the other night and No Country for Old Men last evening. They were both pretty good (as all Best Picture nominees should be), but is it me or are movies getting harder to watch? My mind might be going, but it seems like so many movies are not so easy to follow. Who are the good guys, who are the bad guys, what the heck is going on? No Country for Old Men is also super-violent, in a Coen Brothers sort of way, but after you see a few people get shot in the throat, you learn when to look away from the screen. Neither of these are movies to relax to.
Two more to go.
