"No Country for Old Men" The Windmills (3 replies and 3 comments)
A lot of video essays touch on the symbolism of the windmills shot in the film NCOM. Was this a deliberate choice by you and the filmmakers?
The windmill was an important element in the visuals but that is as far as I would go. What it symbolizes I will leave to others.
I can't figure out what is the connectivity wind mill with script? Could you talk few words.
You'll take that answer to the grave eh?
I think the run-down mill clues in the audience to the dismally somber nature of the story, I mean this in a good way as NCFOM is my favourite movie. Clearly there isnt a clean cut answer for what the windmill stands for, the answer lies within the individual's psyche.
I think you are thinking a little too much. The windmill was just there, a single vertical element on the endless parched landscape.
Looking back on my response it does sound pretentious, but since it without a doubt triggers an emotional response I think it can be connected to some kind of symbolism.
