The Bagger on "No Country for Old Men"

The Carpetbagger takes on the divisive ending of No Country for Old Men:
Anne Thompson, writing in Variety, said that the refusal of the Coen Brothers to let good triumph over evil in “No Country for Old Men” is a subject of discussion that is showing up everywhere, including her book club. The ending hews closely to the book and the Bagger found it in keeping with a film that constructed its own moral universe. Others, though, aren’t so sure.
Interesting perspectives, and Nora Ephron's humorous take on it in The New Yorker is priceless. Warning - it contains spoilers.
