Where's praise for 'No Country for Old Men'?

I had to read Jason Wallis' "Top 100 Films of the Decade" three times to make sure he'd omitted the Coen brothers' "No Country For Old Men" from the list.

In my mind, a film that achieved worldwide recognition and won four Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Supporting Actor, deserved some notice, even if it was "Most Overrated."

Speaking of over-rated: "Kill Bill" as No. 1? Tarantino's been on a downhill slide since "Pulp Fiction" and "Inglourious Basterds" is ample proof. Except for two scenes and a great performance by Christoph Waltz, the film was a self-indulgent piece of trash.

Granted, film criticism is subjective at best. Until now, I've been more than favorably impressed with Jason Wallis. Nevertheless, I'd be interested to hear his rationale for failing to praise or condemn "No Country For Old Men."
