Examples of "anton_chigurh"
Javier Bardem – "No Country for Old Men" as Anton Chigurh
Anton Chigurh () is the main antagonist of Cormac McCarthy's novel "No Country for Old Men", and its film adaptation, in which he is portrayed by Javier Bardem.
Being well received after the theatrical run of "No Country For Old Men", Chigurh has been parodied in other media, mainly as a spoof of the film's most memorable scenes. Ike Barinholtz plays Anton Chigurh in the spoof movie "Disaster Movie", while Carlos Areces plays Anton Chigurh in the spoof movie "Spanish Movie". The Simpsons episode "Waverly Hills, 9-0-2-1-D'oh" also spoofed Chigurh as a city inspector for Waverly Hills.
The Coen Brothers have referenced the film as a major influence on their later work. In particular, the character Jim "Kraken" Jones was a role model for the character Anton Chigurh in the movie "No Country for Old Men". It also helped to popularize the phrase, "Tijuana oil job".
The plot follows the interweaving paths of the three central characters (Llewelyn Moss, Anton Chigurh, and Ed Tom Bell) set in motion by events related to a drug deal gone bad near the Mexican–American border in remote Terrell County in southwest Texas.
Modern-day western gunslingers have also appeared in recent Neo-Westerns. Raylan Givens from the television series "Justified" shares the same ambiguous moral code of an Old West sheriff, even using a fast draw to dispatch his enemies. The hitman Anton Chigurh from "No Country For Old Men" shares many elements of a hunted outlaw. Additionally, the comic book character Vigilante is a self-proclaimed gunfighter born in the 1940s.
Javier Ángel Encinas Bardem (; born 1 March 1969) is a Spanish actor. Bardem won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role as the psychopathic assassin Anton Chigurh in the 2007 Coen brothers film "No Country for Old Men". He has also received critical acclaim for roles in films such as "Jamón, jamón", "Carne trémula", "Boca a boca", "Los Lunes al sol", "Mar adentro", and "Skyfall", for which he received both a BAFTA and a SAG nomination for Best Supporting Actor.
Deborah Biancott sees a "western gothic..., a struggle for and with God, an examination of a humanity haunted by its past and condemned to the horrors of its future... [I]t's a tale of unrepentant evil, the frightening but compelling bad guy who lives by a moral code that is unrecognizable and alien. The wanderer, the psychopath, Anton Chigurh, is a man who's supernaturally invincible."
Anton Chigurh kills or tries to kill almost every person he meets in the film version. The only people he spares are the gas station proprietor (who correctly guesses Chigurh's coin flip), the woman at the trailer park office when Chigurh hears a toilet flush in a nearby room, the woman at the motel front desk, the accountant (arguably), and the two bicycle riding kids who give Chigurh one of their shirts after his car accident.
A reworded version of Weezer's "Beverly Hills" plays during a montage of Waverly Hills and the end credits. Alaska Nebraska is a parody of Hannah Montana, but the character's mannerisms are similar to that of Ellen Page's role in "Juno". The city inspector is based on Anton Chigurh from the 2007 film "No Country for Old Men". In his apartment Homer is shown to have two consoles, Wii and the Xbox 360 on which Homer plays "Halo". There is also a painting which looks similar to the canvas "Composition with Red, Yellow, and Blue" by Piet Mondrian.
In 2007, Strong was one of the final two actors considered for the part of Anton Chigurh in "No Country for Old Men"; despite the persistence of rumours, he claims he was never offered the part. Strong was Pinbacker, the insane captain of "Icarus I", the first ship that was sent to reignite the Sun in "Sunshine" (2007). Pinbacker was inspired by the character of Sergeant Pinback from "Dark Star". The character's disfiguring burns were influenced by the injuries suffered by F1 driver Niki Lauda. Also in 2007, Strong portrayed Prince Septimus, the youngest of the seven Stormhold princes, in "Stardust".
Terrell County, Texas, in June 1980 is desolate, expansive country, and Ed Tom Bell laments the increasing violence in a region where he, like his father and grandfather before him, has risen to the office of sheriff. In a neighboring county, Anton Chigurh, a hitman, strangles a sheriff's deputy to escape custody and steals a car by using a captive bolt pistol to kill the driver. Chigurh spares the life of a gas station owner after the owner accepts a challenge and correctly calls the result of Chigurh's coin flip.
In 2007, Joel and Ethan Coen adapted the book into a film, also titled "No Country for Old Men", which was met with critical acclaim and box office success. On January 27, 2008, the film won the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture. On February 24, 2008, it won four Academy Awards: Best Picture, Best Director (Joel and Ethan Coen), Best Adapted Screenplay (Joel and Ethan Coen), and Best Supporting Actor (Javier Bardem as Anton Chigurh).
One of the themes in the story involves the tension between destiny and self-determination. According to Richard Gillmore, the main characters are torn between a sense of inevitability, "that the world goes on its way and that it does not have much to do with human desires and concerns", and the notion that our futures are inextricably connected to our own past actions. Enda McCaffrey details a character who refuses to acknowledge his own agency, noting that Anton Chigurh (Javier Bardem) ignores repeated reminders that he doesn't have to behave as he does and suggesting that by relegating the lives of Carson and Carla to a coin toss, he hands "responsibility over to 'fate' in an act of bad faith that prevents him from taking responsibility for his own ethical choices."
Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin) wavers between immoral behavior such as taking money that doesn't belong to him, refusing to involve the police and placing his family in grave danger, and moral acts of courage such as returning to the scene of the shootout to give a dying man water, separating himself from his family and refusing the advances of a comely woman at a motel demonstrating a flexibility of principle, as well as desire to escape consequences and a fierce will to survive at all costs. Anton Chigurh is the most amoral, killing those who stand in his way and ruling that a coin toss decides others' fate. The third man, Sheriff Ed Tom Bell, believes himself to be moral, but feels overmatched, however stalwart he might personally be, against the depravity that surrounds and threatens to overwhelm him.
Melamed's voice became a familiar presence on television, serving as the sound of the Olympics, Mercedes Benz, CBS Sports, USA Network, the Super Bowl, and numerous commercials and television programs. He became known within the industry as a voice actor, appearing in the Grand Theft Auto series, and dubbing several actors' entire performances in films. But it was for his portrayal of "sensitive" villain Sy Ableman, in Joel and Ethan Coen's 2009 film, "A Serious Man", which was nominated for Best Picture at the 2010 Academy Awards, that he became most widely known. About that character, "Film Confessional" said, "Sy Ableman is as great a contemporary movie villain as The Joker, Hans Landa, or Anton Chigurh... The character Fred Melamed contrives is the year's most brilliant force of destruction."
Later that day, Will has a "Super Duper Sweet Sixteen" party at his house, despite being 25. The guests include Juney (Crista Flanagan), Dr. Phil (John Di Domenico), Will's best friend Calvin (Gary "G Thang" Johnson), and Anton Chigurh (Barinholtz), among others. During the party, Amy arrives with her new boyfriend, a Calvin Klein underwear model. The party then comes to a halt when the room shakes and the lights go out. A bulletin on the radio claims there is a meteor shower and it is the end of the world. Soon after, the city starts to freeze over, and Will, Juney, Calvin, and Calvin's girlfriend Lisa retreat to a garage for shelter. When Juney mentions that the calamities are caused by global warming, Will realizes his dream about Amy Winehouse could be related. Later, Will is chided by the others for not committing himself to his relationship with Amy.
A parody titled "There Will Be Milkshakes for Old Men" was featured in Episode 5 of Season 33 of NBC’s "Saturday Night Live", which aired on February 23, 2008. Fred Armisen makes an appearance as Anton Chigurh, complete with captive bolt pistol and pageboy haircut, mimicking his famous gas stop scene. In addition, Bill Hader did an impression of Daniel Plainview, Daniel Day-Lewis's character from the film "There Will Be Blood", and emphasized the line "I drink your milkshake" as the basis for a Food Network show that finds Plainview traveling the country in search of the perfect milkshake. The same "Saturday Night Live" episode also featured a parody of "No Country for Old Men" titled "Grandkids in the Movies". Professional wrestler Chris Jericho has stated the heel version of his character debuted in 2008 was directly inspired by Anton Chigurh's calm, indomitable nature. Anton Chigurh's image is also printed on T-shirts.
Sheriff Ed Tom Bell investigates the drug crime while trying to protect Moss and his young wife, with the aid of other law enforcement. Bell is haunted by his actions in World War II, leaving his unit to die, for which he received a Bronze Star. Now in his late 50s, Bell has spent most of his life attempting to make up for the incident when he was a 21-year-old soldier. He makes it his quest to resolve the case and save Moss. Complicating things is the arrival of Anton Chigurh; a hitman hired to recover the money. Chigurh uses a captive bolt pistol (called a "stungun" in the text) to kill many of his victims (and to destroy several cylinder locks to open doors), as well as a silenced shotgun. Carson Wells, a rival hitman and ex–Special Forces officer who is familiar with Chigurh, is also on the trail of the stolen money. After a brutal shootout that spills across the Mexican border and leaves both Moss and Chigurh wounded, Moss recovers at a Mexican hospital while Chigurh patches himself up in a hotel room with stolen supplies. While recuperating, Moss is approached by Wells, who offers to give him protection in exchange for the satchel and tells him his current location and phone number, instructing him to call when he has "had enough".
"No Country for Old Men", released in November 2007, closely follows the 2005 novel of the same name by Cormac McCarthy. Vietnam veteran Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin), living near the Texas/Mexico border, stumbles upon, and decides to take, two million dollars in drug money. He then has to go on the run to avoid those looking to recover the money, including sociopathic killer Anton Chigurh (Javier Bardem), who confounds both Llewelyn and local sheriff Ed Tom Bell (Tommy Lee Jones). This plotline is a return to noir themes, but in some respects it was a departure for the Coens; with the exception of Stephen Root, none of the stable of regular Coen actors appears in the film. "No Country" has received nearly universal critical praise, garnering a 94% "Fresh" rating at Rotten Tomatoes. The film won four Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Adapted Screenplay, all of which were received by the Coens, as well as Best Supporting Actor received by Bardem. The Coens, as "Roderick Jaynes", were also nominated for Best Editor, but lost. It was the first time since 1961 that two directors (in that year, Jerome Robbins and Robert Wise for "West Side Story") had received the honor of Best Director at the same time.
