#185: No Country For Old Men / Josh Brolin Interview / Top 5 Coen Bros. Scenes
This week... Filmspotting abides. It's a special Coen Brothers Edition of the show as Adam and Matty review Joel and Ethan's new thriller "No Country For Old Men," based on the Cormac McCarthy novel and starring Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin, and a terrifying Javier Bardem. Plus, Adam sits down with the former Goonie himself, Mr. Brolin, for a conversation covering his 'breakout' year, his doomed Tarantino-directed "No Country" audition tape and more.
MINOR SPOILER ALERT: Although technically no spoilers are revealed in this review, we do get somewhat specific in describing a few standout scenes. It might not be a terrible idea to wait until after you've seen "No Country," if you have plans to, before listening to the review. But again, there are no actual spoilers. Thanks.
Also on the show: Listener Feedback, Massacre Theatre and our Top 5 Coen Brothers Scenes. "Ya sure, you betcha."
