No Country as a Film

i saw the movie No Country for Old Men when it first came out in theatres back in 2009, and i never realized how similar it is to the book by Cormac McCarthy until now. The dialouge in the movie is the exact same as it was in the book, and even the sheriffs long drawn out speeches appear in the book as the do in the movies. Its pretty easy to tell that McCarthy was writing this book so that it was extrememly easy to turn into a screen play.

  1. I wonder if this was a turning point for McCarthy. The other novels we read were much more artistic in the language. This novel seemed like it was written just for entertainment (and to make money).
