    What a singularly condescending and off-base article by Bart.

    Granted, he’s not the only one who has problems with “No Country”‘s ending. But it quite plainly has a third act. And if the Coens don’t know how to write one, then neither does Cormac McCarthy.

    Sorry, rant over. But I haven’t been feeling Bart’s blog at all.
