Llewelyn Moss stumbles onto a drug deal gone monumentally wrong while hunting in the parched Texas scrubland near the Mexico border. A satchel filled with $2 million seems to be a ship finally arrived, and he dreams of moving his wife Carla Jean out of the trailer park and into the good life. It isn't long before he's being tracked by Anton Chigurh, a psychopathic "debt collector." Sheriff Bell sets out to find Llewelyn, not so much for the propriety of recovering the money but to protect one of his citizens from Chigurh, an evil like nothing Bell has ever seen. The border is a hard land, yet Bell finds that the reflexive murders Chigurh inflicts upon others transforms the lonely vistas, somber deserts, and austere mountains into something horrendous--into no country for old men--or for young ones
The Queen by Stephen Frears ( Visual )
5 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 2,537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Queen begins with a familiar epigraph "Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown"--Henry IV, Part II. The action of the film takes place during the week following the death, on August 31, 1997 of Diana, Princess of Wales. One of its accomplishments, courtesy of adroit use of newsreel and other contemporary footage, is to remind viewers of the deep sadness that surrounded that event. It is also about the divergent and potentially ruinous ways the monarch and Prime Minister Tony Blair responded to the resulting torrent of national grief
