The Coen Brothers‘ anticipated “No Country for Old Men” opens as well and Michael Koresky called it the Coen’s “most fleet, vital film since ‘The Big Lebowski,'” in his review in iW. And Sean Fine and Andrea Nix Fine‘s “War/Dance,” which won the couple a directing prize at Sundance hits screens in limited release.
