Marfa, Texas population 2121 (as per the 2000 census).
It’s also known for the location filming of NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN, GIANT, and THERE WILL BE BLOOD. Pretty amazing for a little town from nowhere. And now, a film festival. The Marfa Film Festival. April 29 – May 3, 2009.
Incidentally, does anyone recall the score to No Country For Old Men by Carter Burwell? Talk about minimal…istic. What a fantastic film.
