The terrifying villain from No Country For Old Men (2007)

Post by susika31 »

The villain, Anton Chigurh is portrayed by Javier Bardem, and he does a masterful job. The character is so good, that the audience's attention is shifted more towards the villain than the actual protagonist. Anton is also said to be one of the most accurate depictions of a psychopath in movie history.
He uses an unconventional weapon to kill most people he decides to kill. But when in gunfights, he is skilled in a range of firearms. In one scene, he uses a big shotgun with a suppressor attached to it, and it's one of my favourite scenes in the movie. He's a very creepy character. He walks slowly and everything he does is methodical and neat. He has a very wide array of other skills too. For example, top-notch detective skills and knowledge on how to care for a wound. He's inhumanly resistant to pain as well. He tosses a coin to decide whether he wants to kill someone or spare them. It's really amazing how a human villain can be scarier than an actual supernatural monster.
Even though he is a remorseless killer, I can't help but find him badass and cool. I've tried to customise my character in GTA or Saints Row to be like him, to kind of roleplay as him in-game.
Anyway, I hope that more people will watch this masterpiece of a movie.
