No Country For Old Men

My goal is to make one blog post a day. This one is concerning the movie No Country For Old Men. I was trying to figure out what is so disturbing about the film. Why does it seem so dark and cynical despite many more movies have more blood, guts, death, etc. The reason is because the extras in every scene are so helpful.
For example, the desk lady at the first store couldn't understand why the main character wanted two hotel rooms when it was just one person. She asked if he was sure he wanted two bedrooms, because she was worried about him. I constantly noticed the auxiliary characters showing lots of concern for other people, which contrasted nicely with the antagonist, who showed no regard for other people.
