Detroit Critics Name “No Country” Best Film

By Franck Tabouring

“No Country for Old Men” topped yet another award list on Tuesday as the Detroit Film Critics Society announced its winners of 2007. The Joel and Ethan Coen-helmed thriller was named best film and took home prizes for direction and supporting actor for Javier Bardem.

George Clooney won best actor for his performance in Tony Gilroy’s political thriller “Michael Clayton.” Ellen Page won in the best actress category for her role in Jason Reitman’s hit indie “Juno,” beating runners-up Julie Christie, Amy Adams, Laura Linney and Marion Cotillard.

“Juno” also took home the award for best ensemble and best newcomer for screenwriter Diablo Cody.

Tilda Swinton snatched the award for best supporting actress for her role in “Michael Clayton.” She went up against Amy Ryan in “Gone Baby Gone,” Cate Blanchett in “I’m Not There,” Catherine Keener in “Into the Wild” and Emily Mortimer in “Lars and the Real Girl.”

The U.S. is definitely the right country for the Coen brothers, considering their continuing dominance among award winners. I have a certain feeling that their reign is not over yet.
