Big reason shot here: the Coens hired crew in SF and ABQ who commuted daily to LV- Coens didn't have to pay lodging or per diem... in Marfa, they had to pay hotel and per diem for everyone... they saved millions doing principal shooting here. The countryside about 20 miles east of LV is a pretty good stand in for Presidio County.
have you or anyone else seen this yet?

i have some friends who were filmed as extras in the movie- can't wait to see if they made it through the edits!

from what i saw of the previews, the film is about as close to the book as you could possibly ask.

I can't believe no one mentioned "Missing", (or could be "The Missing") filmed near Jemez Springs. Directed by Ron Howard and starring Tommy Lee Jones. The film crew, including Ron Howard, had lunch at the restaurant I managed in Los Alamos. Mr. Howard was incredibly gracious even though he did not eat his broccoli. I guess without Aunt Bea watching over his shoulder he could get away with that.

The movie wasn't that great but meeting Opie was unforgettable.

Haven't seen it yet... I had "VIP" tickets for the NM premier last Wednesday, but the organizers issued 1,000 tix for a 560 seat theater... didn't get in...
supposed to hit general release in a couple of days.

Can't wait either... friends tell me a shoot out occurs in front of my business. Also have friends as extras and a couple who got small speaking roles.

Although I'm still trying to figure out the ending, I'd have to say that "No Country for Old Men" is an excellent film.

It contains tension, excellent acting, and good use of local, NM scenery.

Tommy Lee Jones, with lines on his forehead that look like a road map, just keeps getting better and better.

Edge of America Directed by Chis Eyre who won many many awards for this movie including a Directors Guild Award.

Geronimo...the good one with Wes Studi

Also, the Missing as stated above

The Jim Chee series (directed by Chris Eyre)

New Mexico give HUGE tax breaks for Filming there and I belive they now have several "Film Schools" that include learning how to do the behind the scenes jobs. If anyone is looking for a growth industry in NM this is it!

Also, there are many indi films that are filmed there. In one state you can get from desert to MTs and everything in between.

The Movie: Transformers(2007) There is a scene after the soldiers are attacked and in retreat from the alien. As they are footin it, one scenery shot is of Shiprock Peak, the TALLEST EXPOSED volcano cone in the world. Nice...

Yep, you'll be complaining...until your home value starts appreciating 10% per year.

I just read through the whole thread, and don't think I saw Wild Hogs mentioned, filmed in Madrid [but I wouldn't consider it the best film made in NM].

I just saw the PBS show on Kit Carson a few nights ago. It was very good. Made me want to visit your beautiful state again very soon.
