Cormac McCarthy Chats With the Coen Brothers

I haven’t seen No Country For Old Men. It never came to Gozo last year. We don’t have a TV at the moment, and I’m disinclined to watch such a renowned film on my laptop. I’ll wait until we build our theatre room along with the rest of the house, I guess.

Anyhow, while researching ebooks last week, I happened upon this short interview between Cormac McCarthy and the Coen Brothers. An interview with McCarthy is a rare thing (according to Wikipedia, he sat for his first ever TV interview in 2007!), and it’s an enjoyable read:

C.M. But Miller’s Crossing is in that category. I don’t want to embarrass you, but that’s just a very, very fine movie.

J.C. Eh, it’s just a damn rip-off.

C.M. No, I didn’t say it wasn’t a rip-off. I understand it’s a rip-off. I’m just saying it’s good.

It’s about eight months old, but if you missed it and liked the movie, it’s worth reading.

  1. Great interview. I would pay to be in that room, just listening.

    But here’s what soured it for me. It’s on the Time Magazine website. Great. I don’t care for Time, but the interview was a super piece to read. So I’m a little interested. Maybe they have more good content?

    I click to another story featured in the footer at the end of the Coen / Mccarthy interview. And what does Time Magazine do? Pop-under ad. For a credit card company. A pop-under in 2008. C’mon Time, you suck.
