Yeah, but the beacon wasn't with Llewellyn at that point. I think they found him via the mother in law.

Yeah, I assumed it was the mother-in-law too.

Is that Three Burials film any good, Joe?

I thought it was excellent - one of my favourites of 2006 - and I don't even normally like westerns that much (as a genre).

Edit - Three Burials that is, obviously. Though No Country For Old Men is my favourite of 2008 so far.

Maybe the "boss" dished out 3 tracking device recievers?


edit: forgot about the mother-in-law scene.

Three Burials made me laugh out loud half a dozen times. Excellent film.

Yes, it's very good.

I don't generally go with the Amazon formula of 'if you liked that, you'll like this' but if you liked 'No country For Old Men'....

**********SPOILERS****************


I saw No Country... last night. My first words when the film ended were: "What the fuck?" And I felt a little disappointed because I'm conditioned to expect more linear story-archs, and Chigurh doesn't die et cetera. by the time I got home, I was in awe of the movie I had seen, for pretty much the reasons stated in this thread.

After the film, I went for a leak, and overheard to goons discussing how shit it was. One of the goons was making reference to Peckinpah, which is great, provided you actually sound like you know what you're talking about, not spewing out some hack's half-masticated review. At that moment, I had visions of turning myself into Chigurh (at least he has lots of hair!) and killing these two fuckwits with my gas canister thingy.

I will need to see this film again to really catch all the nuances.

You should probably stick a few "SPOILER" tags in there, G-Man.

I watched The Three Burials Of Melquiades Estrada last night. Decent, but not a patch on NCFOM. The graveyard digging scenes were strongly reminiscent of Blood Simple.

The fist-brained patrolman character became a bit annoying after a while.

Fair enough; I pit a spoiler tag in. Though I can't see why anyone would open a multi-page thread about a film they haven't seen yet if they don't want to encounter spoilers. On the first couple of pages it makes sense to place Spoiler tags: somebody might want to get a sense of how people reacted to the quality of a movie. Surely nobody will enter page 5 of a thread to acquire that information.

Still, no harm in inserting Spoiler warnings. So point taken.

...............spoiler...........................

The Mexicans were my bet as well. I keep meaning to give the book a try, that might help us hard of thinking in cinemas types.
