It didn't take a lot of soul searching to hands-down pick NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN as my favorite film of 2007. The Coen Brothers did a masterful job not only directing but adapting Cormac McCarthy's brilliant mix of a novel filled with equal doses Western, Hitchcock suspense and Biblical apocalypse.
And now news of their latest endeavor has me equally excited. Found on Ain't It Cool News:
Michael Chabon is fast becoming one of those writers whose new novels have become a celebration. The Yiddish Policemen's Union sits on the pile of "to be read much sooner than later" in good company. And now that it's getting the Coen treatment, it may have to move even further up the list.
