Adapted by the Coen Brothers into an Academy Award winning film, No Country For Old Men is a dark and suspenseful novel from Cormac McCarthy, author of The Road. Llewelyn Moss, hunting antelope near the Rio Grande, stumbles upon a transaction gone horribly wrong. Finding bullet-ridden bodies, several kilos of heroin, and a caseload of cash, he faces a choice – leave the scene as he found it, or cut the money and run. Choosing the latter, he knows, will change everything. And so begins a terrifying chain of events, in which each participant seems determined to answer the question that one asks another: how does a man decide in what order to abandon his life?

In 2005, Cormac McCarthy's novel, No Country for Old Men, was published to wide acclaim, and in 2007, Ethan and Joel Coen brought their adaptation of McCarthy's novel to the screen. The film earned praise from critics worldwide and was honored with four Academy Awards', including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Adapted Screenplay. In No Country for Old Men: From Novel to Film, scholars offer varied approaches to both the novel and the award-winning film. Beginning with several essays dedicated entirely to the novel and its place within the McCarthy canon, the anthology offers subsequent essays focusing on the film, the adaptation process, and the Coen Brothers more broadly. The book also features an interview with the Coen brothers' long-time cinematographer Roger Deakins. This entertaining and enriching book for readers interested in the Coen Brothers' films and in McCarthy's fiction is an important contribution to both literature and film studies.

NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN follows three major characters: Eric Newman - an idealistic academic obsessed with the truth about the death of a left-wing poet of the 1930s for his almost finished biography of the writer; Eric's old friend Nick Burns - a federal agent with no illusions; and Odette des Chavannes - a high profile investigative journalist who is always pursuing a blockbuster story. Their objective - to recover the long-lost technology that is the key to a secret weapon for psychological warfare. Their quests intertwine in a globetrotting journey from New York to Washington, Paris, Buenos Aires and Santiago, through a labyrinth of multinational power and international corruption, where rules and stakes shift constantly and adversaries wear many masks.

DIE STILLE VOR DEM SCHUSS Bei einem morgendlichen Ausflug in die texanische Wüste findet Hobbyjäger Llewellyn Moss eine gespenstische Szenerie vor: mehrere Leichen, eine Pick-up-Ladefläche voller Heroin und am Ende einer Blutspur einen Koffer mit 2,4 Millionen Dollar. Er behält das Geld – sein erster Fehler. Der zweite: In der Nacht kehrt er zum Tatort zurück, um seine Spuren zu verwischen. Und gerät ins Visier des eiskalten Killers Chigurh. «Ein minimaler Western mit maximaler sprachlicher Präzision. Atemberaubend.» STERN

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich Filmwissenschaft, Note: 1,8, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (Theaterwissenschaft), Veranstaltung: Theater analysieren, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: „Es gibt keine Flucht ohne Spuren!“ - schon der Untertitel auf dem Cover der deutschen Kauf-DVD „No Country for Old Men“, in Regie der Coen-Brüder im Jahre 2007 entstanden, gibt einen ersten Hinweis auf den Jagd-Topos, der den Zuschauer allgegenwärtig im Film erscheinen wird. Dieser, der Zuschauer, erwartet sofort Spuren, die zur Beute führen, Jäger, die sich auf leisen Sohlen heranpirschen und Verfolgte, die um ihr Leben rennen. Doch wie schaffen es Ethan und Joel Coen, die Jagdszenen dramaturgisch zu inszenieren? Welche Hinweise geben verschiedene Motive und mit welchem symbolischen Gehalt sind diese aufgeladen? Wie wird Flucht und Verfolgung in der formalen Bildgestaltung umgesetzt? Eben jene Umsetzung der Jagd, auf dramaturgischer, symbolischer und bildnerischen Ebene, stehen im Zentrum dieser Untersuchung.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2012 im Fachbereich Filmwissenschaft, Note: 2,0, Christian-Albrechts-Universität Kiel, Veranstaltung: American Dreams, American Nightmares. Die Filme der Coen Brüder, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die vorliegende Arbeit beschäftigt sich mit der Analyse des Sound Designs in der Romanverfilmung „No Country for Old Men“, von Ethan und Joel Coen, aus dem Jahr 2007. Der Film kann als eine Mischung aus Neo-Noir-Western, Psychothriller und Gangster-Ballade beschrieben werden, der auch Elemente einer schwarzen Komödie vorweist und mit vier Oscars ausgezeichnet wurde. Gerade aufgrund des unüblichen Verzichts auf Filmmusik, der knappen Dialoge mit viel Raum und der langen Kameraschnitte, nimmt das Sound Design in „No Country for Old Men“ eine tragende Rolle ein und erhielt je eine Nominierung für den besten Ton und besten Tonschnitt. Mit den Worten von Ethan Coen: „Even in a movie like this where people think the sound is minimal, it’s actually maximal in terms of the effects and how they’re handled.“ Zusammenhängend wird zunächst die Geschichte des Tons im Medium „Film“ thematisch angerissen und dann die Unterschiede der Tonspuren des klassischen Hollywood und des New Hollywood kenntlich gemacht. Begrifflich wird das Sound Design folgend in den Kontext des New Hollywood eingebunden und terminologisch festgelegt, wobei näher auf die

Once a country of emigration and diaspora, in the 1990s Ireland began to attract immigration from other parts of the world: a new citizenry. By the first decade of the twenty-first century, the ratio between GDP and population placed Ireland among the wealthiest nations in the world. The Peace Agreements of the mid-1990s and the advent of power-sharing in Northern Ireland have enabled Ireland's story to change still further. No longer locked into troubles from the past, the Celtic Tiger can now leap in new directions. These shifts in culture have given Irish literature the opportunity to look afresh at its own past and, thereby, new perspectives have also opened for Irish Studies. The contributors to this volume explore these new openings; the essays examine writings from both now and the past in the new frames afforded by new times.
