Early in the Coen Brother’s No Country for Old Men, Javier Bardem — playing a sadistic killer — faces down a meek, old gas station owner, played brilliantly by Gene Jones.
One of the best written, acted, and directed scenes of relentless menace that I have ever seen.
Two men in an old gas station.
See this piece in the LA Times about the actor Gene Jones, who in several minutes delivers a brilliant, electrifying performance.
ITS SO FUNNY , IF YOU ASK ANYONE WHAT THEY ACTUALLY ENJOYED ABOUT THIS MOVIE. ALL THEY CAN EVER SAY IS OH MY THE GAS STATION SCENE WAS SO GOOD. THERE LITERALLY IS NOTHING ELSE WORTH WATCHING ABOUT THIS MOVIE
I obviously disagree. The film is extraordinary, quite apart from the scene.
The gas station ……. fantastic performance
