See what I did there?

Notes

  1. kerdea said: I fucking love this movie. Fierce, fierce love.
  2. restinvermont said: Love that movie so much. Also I can’t believe Deakins has never won an Oscar. Every time I see his movies I’m blown away by how they’re shot.
  3. neitherfamenorfortune said: it is part of a bleak trilogy that started with No Country and continued with A Serious Man. Maybe Llewellyn will continue the trend? Hmmmmm
