From novel: No Country for Old Men by Cormac McCarthy

While hunting, Llewelyn Moss comes across a crime scene in the desert, the detritus of a heroin deal turned sour. He takes the $2M cash he finds, but one of the most convincing psychopaths in cinema history, Anton Chigurh played by Javier Bardem, very much wants that money. Also Woody Harrelson shows up for no discernible reason. Relentless nihilism in a mesmerizing tapestry of violence; what little plot exists is secondary. Won Oscars for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Supporting Actor, and Best Screenplay; received nominations for 4 others including Best Cinematography.
