BEHIND THE SCENES: A Masterclass on Story From The No Country for Old Men Script1 min readReading Time: < 1 minute
There were two competing films shooting in Texas at the same time in the summer of 2006. No Country for Old Men and There Will Be Blood were shot less than 50 miles away from each other. And legend has it No Country had to shut down shooting for one day due to the smoke from the scene where the oil rig caught fire in There Will Be Blood. While we already covered the There Will Be Blood script, I want to spend today going over No Country For Old Men’s screenplay.
We’ll cover the opening, ending, themes, and some of the standout dialogue from No Country for Old Men. Ready?
Heads or tails… call it.
