Good and evil / light and darkness are in balance due to an ancient agreement. The bad things are watched over by the Nightwatch but of late things aren't really going too well. A Russian vampire movie with ideas above it's station and all the better for it. Take the opening battle sequence, spliced together in such a way that half of it looks like it's from 'Lord of the Rings' and the other half from 'Lord of the Cockrings'. I love a bit of amateurism in my movies but the differences in quality on display here, even within the context of one scene, are massive. Apparently this is the first of a proposed trilogy which should see the budgets, the technical expertise, the plot and acting improve. Even if this isn't the case, two more like this would be more than welcome.
No Country for Old Men
A sprawling noir that reinstates the Coens as the modern masters of the genre.
