That Small - Carlos Peron - Ady Henry Kiss - Bakers Barn (Original Novel Soundtrack) no country for old men. Caught in that sensual music all neglect Monuments of unageing intellect. An aged man is but a paltry thing, A tattered coat upon a stick, unless Soul clap its hands and sing, and louder sing For every tatter in its mortal dress, Nor is there singing school but studying Monuments of its own magnificence; And therefore I have sailed the seas and come To the holy city of Byzantium.
This fabled Byzantium representing a paradise—an immaterial realm of wisdom and eternity—separated from the deteriorating quality of life found in the material world. The story follows the journey of three Love Bugaloo - Various - Jazz Improv caught in a tangled pursuit of one another across this burgeoning wasteland: Llewyn Moss, the everyday man responsible for stealing the money that kicks the plot in motion; Anton Chigurh, the philosophical, psychopathic hitman chasing Moss across the desert; and Sheriff Ed Tom Bell, the aging Sheriff searching for both men and painfully aware of the declining moral tide plaguing his small county of Terrell, Texas and rapidly spreading out across the nation.
In a significant Galope (A.P.E. Remix) - Aleuda - Oferenda obvious change for adaptation reasons, his narration is absent from the film.
Meanwhile, Llewlyn Moss, a Vietnam vet and welder by craft, spends his time in the isolated terrains of West Texas where he hunts a herd of antelopes within these wide-open and unpopulated spaces. While tracking a wounded animal, he stumbles upon the aftermath of a drug-deal gone horribly awry—multiple Mexican men, their animals, and their armored trucks brought down by a barrage of bullets.
During his search, Moss, ever the hunter, finds a satchel of money Small - Carlos Peron - Ady Henry Kiss - Bakers Barn (Original Novel Soundtrack) close to two million dollars. The back of his shirt was already wet with sweat. The rocks there etched with pictographs perhaps a thousands years old.
The men who drew them hunters like himself. Of them there was no other trace. Nonetheless, Moss steals the money and returns to his trailer parker home. In the book, the age difference between Carla Jean and Moss becomes a much more prominent factor in their relationship. Still, that night, Moss finds himself in a restless quandary.
While searching for the money earlier in the day, he encountered a dying Mexican man asking for water, which forces Moss to return to the desert. Either way, the hunter returns to this desecrated rendezvous point, only to find that he is no longer alone.
A chase throughout the rocky terrain ensues: one that ends with badly wounded Moss escaping into a river. In the scene, Bell and his Deputy are driving back from the scene of the massacred Mexicans, when he suddenly spots a redtail hawk lying dead and removes it from the road. McCarthy writes:. They would hunt the blacktop, sitting on the high powerpoles and watching the highway in both direction for miles. Small - Carlos Peron - Ady Henry Kiss - Bakers Barn (Original Novel Soundtrack) small thing that might venture to cross.
Closing on their prey against the sun. Lost in the concentration of the hunter. He is a force of nature. An entity of violence prepared to scour the corners of the earth to complete his task. What separates Chigurh, again, from veering into cartoonish power more along the lines of the Terminator than Judge Holden can be credited to the philosophical propositions that guide his code.
Almost an exact adaptation from the scene in the book, Chigurh encounters a hapless, friendly gas station clerk who soon finds his entire life at the hands of this hitman. Chigurh represents a destructive force of will—a personification of violence, fate, and determinism that cannot be left unacknowledged or ignored. Early on, in a quick but insightful character moment, Chigurh drives across a bridge at night. Let me say it again.
These are not good odds. You could even say that he has principles. Principles that transcend money or drugs or anything like that. Unlike Chigurh, Wells function as a more proto-typical hitman. He is a company man, hoping to complete his job, get paid, and go home. Wells stood over the woman studying her.
She had a newspaper in her lap and she was wearing a cotton robe that was black with dried blood. It was cold in the room. Wells looked around. A second shot had marked a date on a calendar on the wall behind her that was three days hence. You could not help but notice. He looked around the rest of the room. He took a small camera from his jacket pocket and took a couple of pictures of the dead woman and put the camera back in his pocket again.
Although one can understand the excision of this small moment from the film, the remarkable little moment evokes pathos in a creative and intriguing manner.
In the film, Moss merely meets a flirtatious woman outside the motel pool begging to share a beer, which promptly cuts to his and her death just moments later—with the Sheriff watching a band of gun-wielding Mexicans fleeing on a pick up truck.
In the book, however, Moss and this young girl share a number of scenes together: in the car, in a diner, in the motel; and ultimately, in the morgue. These dialogue exchanges bring out shades of humanity to Moss that are missing in the film and which are harder to find in between his scenes of machismo against his enemies or the constant stream of sarcasm exhibited with his wife, Carl Jean.
Moss advises:. I just want you to be careful. We get to El Paso. You got money. As Small - Carlos Peron - Ady Henry Kiss - Bakers Barn (Original Novel Soundtrack) the film, the deaths are actually revealed somewhat after the fact—with Sheriff Bell driving out to the site of the corpses.
From both a literary and cinematic approach, the effect is jarring in the best way possible. Reeling from the scene of the massacre and their trip to the morgue to identify the bodies, Sheriff Bell and the local El Paso Sheriff retreat to a diner for some late night coffee. Probably the most memorable bit of narration reconfigured for this dialogue comes near the end of the meal, when the two Texas Sheriffs remark:. Money and the drugs.
Though this dialogue is taken nearly verbatim from a separate piece of Bell narration, it reflects another passage where the Sheriff contemplates a similar thematic issue:. Well, here comes the answers back. Rape, arson, murder. So I think about that. Both Set The World On Fire - Various - Top DJ Volume 7 passages reflect Small - Carlos Peron - Ady Henry Kiss - Bakers Barn (Original Novel Soundtrack) bleak outlook on the imminent future toward which Bell believes he may be receiving just a glimpse of in the present.
Here again, there is a slight change between the novel and film. Though the conversation remains much the same, the conclusion holds a significant difference. She demands that Chigurh accept responsibility for the fact that he has a choice to walk away—a view that Chigurh does not share. In a final chance at freedom, Chigurh offers her the same coin toss that he has offered to a number of his victims.
But Chigurh counters:. Every moment in your life is a turning and every one a choosing. Somewhere you made a choice. All followed to this. The accounting is scrupulous. The shape is drawn. No line can be erased. I had no belief in your ability to move a coin to your bidding. How could you? A coin toss perhaps. In this case to small purpose. You see what a problem that must be for them. How to prevail over that which you refuse to acknowledge the existence of. The Texas lawman cannot comprehend the rising violence, because he refuses to believe that a person can only exist in this one regard—to perpetuate and commit acts of violence—and therefore he cannot prevail over this unnamable idea, which he refuses to even acknowledge.
Intriguingly, however, the next scene catches the audience quite off-guard—as Chigurh is unexpectedly injured in a car collision by a vehicle that ran through a red light.
While the two kids approach Chigurh out of compassion to aid a stranger, Chigurh offers the children a hundred dollars for a shirt and to keep quiet about his appearance. As he Small - Carlos Peron - Ady Henry Kiss - Bakers Barn (Original Novel Soundtrack) away using the shirt as a sling, the kids bicker about splitting the money.
And though nervous, he does indeed help the Sheriff with what few details he can remember and his memory of the event. Though not able to offer any significant details, the Sheriff thanks the boy for his help. After a lengthy confession in the book, the reader learns that the Sheriff still bears a great deal of shame for an incident during his war years.
The Sheriff meets with his crippled uncle Ellis—a former lawman as well—where Bell confesses that he feels outmatched. Nonetheless, he does indeed hang up his hat—choosing to spend time with his wife rather than fighting against what appears to a worsening country where he does not belong. Consume my heart away; sick with desire And fastened to a dying animal It knows not what it is; and gather me Into the artifice of eternity. Once out of nature I shall never take My bodily form from any natural thing, But such a form as Grecian goldsmiths make Of hammered gold and gold enamelling To keep a drowsy Emperor awake; Or set upon a golden bough to sing To lords and ladies of Byzantium Of what is past, or Eternidad (Eternity) - Bhen Lanzaroni With The Bob Crewe Generation Orchestra - In Classic Form, or to come.
In the first, his father gives Sanctus - Mozart* - Exultate Jubilate / Requiem KV626 / Ave Verum some money and he loses it.
In the second, he and his father are in:. Like any great piece of art, this enigmatic dream has engendered a wide variety of interpretations. However, when considered in relation to the poem from which the title takes its name, the parallels between these two pieces become starkly evident. As the poem addresses this yearning for a haven that offers sanctity from the degenerative nature of the physical world, the protagonist asks the sages that have already arrived within this realm to allow his union with them in this eternal fire.
The poem speaks to a being aware of both his past, and deteriorating future, and who seeks some glimpse Hold On - Chris Poland - Rare Trax immortality through this land of Byzantium—one where the wise sages have already arrived before him and transcended to immortality through a separation from the physical world.
His father, also a former lawman a wise sage rides past his son into this immemorial landscape—one in which darkness surrounds them but through which the father carries the fire of a far more ancient tradition.
This dream of reuniting with his father in some immortal land with the fire of their spirit still blazing amidst an occluding darkness offers Bell some sense of intrigue, possibly hope, until realizing—.
