Recently, my wife and I have had a Tommy Lee Jones film festival on DVD. Some weeks ago, we watched "No Country for Old Men," which won the most recent Academy Award for Best Picture. Saturday night, we watched "In the Valley of Elah." If you missed it, that latter film is about a father of a missing soldier just back from Iraq.
Except for the sappy song played during the flag raising near the end of the movie, I thought "In the Valley of Elah" was a better film.
In any case, "No Country for Old Men" would not have won our vote for Best Picture.
