The image is unnatural — squeezed into 1.37 to 1 when it should be 16 x 9 — but Variety columnist Anne Thompson has an exclusive on the new trailer for Joel and Ethan Coen‘s No Country For Old Men.
The Miramax marketing guys have made this marvelous film look like an action-horror flick about a stalking ogre with an early ’80s haircut (Javier Bardem‘s “Anton Chigurh”) out to kill and kill again like the most ungodly and merciless Jason/Freddy Krueger psychopath of all time. And he is that, yes, only much, much funnier. And the movie isn’t an action-horror film. It’s much deeper and darker than that.
