No Country For Old Men was released in 2007 and quickly earned itself a reputation as one of the best films of the 21st Century.

Almost unanimously praised by film critics around the world, the movie was nominated for various prestigious awards across multiple organisations. At the 80th Academy Awards in 2008, the film took home four Oscars for ‘Best Picture’, ‘Best Director(s)’, ‘Best Adapted Screenplay’ and ‘Best Supporting Actor’ for Javier Bardem.

Bardem’s portrayal of the uniquely terrifying Anton Chigurh was aptly supported by career-highlight performances from Josh Brolin and Tommy Lee Jones as their characters tried to work out how to stop one of the most cold and callous villains in movie history in Chigurh.

The movie was adapted from Cormac McCarthy’s novel of the same name by Joel and Ethan Coen and it stands out as one of the best movies from the brothers’ impressive filmography.

The undeniable success of the film has made No Country For Old Men one of the most celebrated movies of recent times, but here are a few things you might not know about the cinematic masterpiece.
