I wanted to purchase it initially.
But I was thinking -- would there be a 2 disc edition in the near future? can't afford to waste too much money buying 2 versions ...

The Coen's never say %%%@ about their movies, so don't expect a commentary.

Nope, there's no commentary.

At this point, I haven't heard anything regarding a 2-disc edition, hengcs. And even if one is in the works, it probably won't be released in the near future. But I'll try to keep an eye out for it.

Well, i'm sorry but this came as a disappointment, but then again i should have expected a Best Picture Oscar winner to be undeserving. It went for a cooler, more artfully classy approach than their previous stuff and was interesting in the first half then it simply drained away. Now i'm fine with unresolved endings and a certain drift (e.g Antonioni) but i simply became less and less involved, i guess from not long after the motel shootout scene. The Coens like these sort of bad guy coming to your room to get you scenarios (a classic scene in Miller's Crossing) but here there's no real heart or much warmth.

Hello Everyone,

Could anyone here help me to appreciate the Coens' work more? After watching *Fargo* when it first came out, I was...underwhelmed. It made me want to avoid every movie thereafter including *No Country for Old Men*.

Can someone fill me in as to what I am missing? Are they referencing other filmmakers or planting secret subliminal messages in the open fields? Thanks.
