Total garbage. As I said, watch the far superior "There Will Be Blood" for a thoughtful and dramatic film with brilliant lead performances.
I loved There Will Be Blood, as well.
But you should go back and rethink No Country. I was in a theater full of people that didn't "get it" when they saw it and heard some of the same grumblings. They figured it was a movie about good and bad guys, a briefcase full of cash a serial killer with a bad haircut. But it's obviously not. Hell, the movie is barely about their characters to begin with. Their actions are more relevant to the story than the actual people themselves.
