Western in a new way : NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN as a Western (engelsk)
Abstract [en]

This addresses the problems when a film doesn’t easily fit in to one specific genre. Using No Country for Old Men as an example the study analyses the film from a Western perspective. Is it possible to say that it is a western? To determine that, I compare a number of acknowledged westerns, on the basis to list a number of generic conventions. I then use these conventions in my analysis of the main film. I there discover that the film despite its apparent likeness to the western genre fail to meet one of the fundamental conventions, namely the time aspect. The film doesn’t take place in the 19th century and can therefore be very hard to put under the western category. I however manage to make it so anyway. I expand the genre with a sub genre label. The Contemporary Western is born. The Contemporary Western is a film that meets all the typical conventions of the western except the time setting. This is a film that is a western sett in a modern time.
