Some excellent storytelling

I'm normally not a fan of westerns, but this one has some great storytelling in it. Both with the plot from the original 1968 novel, but also in the Cohen brother's adaptation of it.

I have enormous respect for anyone who can successfully pull a story out of a book and drop it into a movie. That's no mean trick as novels and films are two entirely separate beasts, with very different senses of pacing as well as different attention spans on the part of readers and film viewers.
