The Coen Brothers have a knack for nihilism, and never before has that been conveyed so terrifyingly well than in their 2007 masterpiece No Country for Old Men. Using a simple hook, a man stumbling upon the aftermath of a botched drug deal and taking off with the money, the movie plunges the viewer into a world of moral relativism, injustice, and existential woe. Featuring one of the best screen villains of all time, this Cormac McCarthy adaptation has already cemented itself as an essential work of American cinema.

This panel will feature special Cormac McCarthy archival material on display in the Jim Hogg Parlor, presented by the Wittliff Collections.
