Evil Now Has Another Face

Alex no country for old men

When I think of the word “EVIL” my mind quickly returns to Malcolm McDowells character, Alex de Large, from Kubrick‘s film, “A Clockwork Orange.”

However, evil now has a second face: Anton Chigurh, the character played by Javier Bardem in the Coen Brothers‘ new film, “No Country for Old Men.”

Anton is terribly haunting, void of any conscious or emotion. One eerie scene that seems too coincidental was when Anton sits down in a vacant trailer home for a glass of milk. The parallel to Alex drinking this wholesome food was uncanny.

Alex and milk

The Coen’s have created the new face of evil for this generation. Well done.
