You can't stop what's coming

I am very excited that No Country for Old Men was awarded the Oscar for Best Picture and Best Direction and Best Adapted Screenplay. I think it's an unusually brave choice, given that the film challenges normal audience expectations about structure and resolution.

There Will be Blood has still not been shown in the Coventry area, so I haven't any opinion about whether it was robbed, but it sounds to me like more of a conventional 'big' film, in the tradition of Citizen Kane, whereas No Country seems to start off in a new direction all of its own.
