I am in a movie theater. The main character is about my age, and the times have passed him by. He is a sheriff, like his daddy before him, and he can handle the problems that his daddy used to handle, but the ultra-violence being unleashed by the modern drug wars is too much for him. The title of the movie perfectly captures his situation: No Country for Old Men. As I watch the movie, I realize that I used to be able to handle the violence depicted in the movies that they made when my father was still alive, but the graphic ultra-violence being shown by the modern movie director is too much for me.
