This is what happens when great filmmakers come together. Sorry this one took me three weeks. I was on spring break and this was also the longest video I've made thus far.

I think Chigurh is the personification of a character theme, Unconquerable Evil. Sure, we can sit here and think of many ways that h could have been thwarted, but the Coen brothers immerse you so well into the story that one almost forgets that he could be thwarted. Part of the element of this story is the dynamic between Chigurh and Moss. Chigurh is Something Else. Moss is just your everyday good ol' boy, practical, but thus doomed by his inability to outsmart his opponent. I think the end scene where Chigurh is in the car accident shows that he can be hurt, but not stopped. The Coens smartly avoided making him absolutely invulnerable. A flawed superior villain is just more believable, and thus scarier, than one that cannot even be made to bleed.

I took it as a nightmare of what's to come, and he desided to retire right then....and then He woke up...
Mike Funderburk (4 hours ago)
This video captured none of the nuance the Cohens portrayed. The playes were not different characters but facets of the whole. Moss was greed and regret. The money represented possible redemption but ultimately was the failure he was destined to suffer. The Sheriff is the monotonous reality that we all hope to escape but have become so numb to we lose the notion of being self-aware and simply place one foot in front of the other desperately hoping for another step. The Killer is blind f***ing chance. Not mysterious, just the unknown like Schrodinger's Cat.

If I was the sherriff I would get the whole world to go after this man. I would die before I let him free. This film portrayed evil as brave and good as afraid. That is unfortunately our reality because most of you are cowards who claim to be good, and those who are brave find you replusive, and therefore turn evil.

Nice work, but give credit where it’s due. Practically all of that “great Coen Brothers dialogue” is directly from the book! Side note: the book was originally a screenplay by Cormac McCarthy, later adapted by McCarthy into a novel, which was then adapted by the Coens back into a screenplay. That's how easy it is to come up with something so refined.

When the Sheriff sees the blown out lock, and we see ANTON behind the door, I've understood this as the Sherrif's "thought" or "projection" of his fear and not really the actual, physical presence of Anton. Otherwise, how could he simply disappear? You can say it a "ghostly trace" of Anton activated in the Sheriffs mind viz the blown-out lock. Anywya, did You notice how THE SHADOW of the SHERIFF at the Hotel and ANTON's pose at MOSS's trailer match? What does that mean?

I've read lots of idea's on this movie, and there are lots of ways to interpret it. Here is the best IMO. When your young you see evil through different eyes, and it doesn't phase you as much. Your young, and there is too much going on in your life to focus on things like that for very long. However, as you age, your life slows down, and you are no longer part of that same world as the world when you were young. You now see evil a bit better for what it is, and in the seeing of it, your mind can't deal with evil as you were able to do so when you were young. Therefore the title of the movie/novel "No Country for Old Men". As mentioned in the video above, Bell is growing older, and he can no longer understand this "new" evil in the world today. He doesn't understand that evil has always been evil, and that its never changed, but he [Bell] has changed. Whats coming isn't all waiting on him [Bell], and if he thinks so, "that's vanity".

I've always thought the duality of the trailer shots (and many other shots in the film) is about the commonality of man and evil, that the evildoers are among us, drinking milk like we do, sitting on couches like we do.

I have been binge watching your videos, as a cinephile and an aspiring Filmmaker they help me a lot. If I could make a suggestion you should dive into some of Tarantino's older movies where you can really tell he was setting into his ways of directing and his writing. Reservoir Dogs was the first Tarantino movie I saw when I was 13 and ever since then I have been obsessed with cinematics.

From start to finish that was very well done and informative. This is one of my top 50 movies of all time and I've seen it at least a dozen times and the part that always got me was where did Anton go when the sheriff open the door to the motel at the end. I definitely realize that was a moment in the sheriff's life and in the movie where he had to open the door so he wouldn't never have to live a life of regret in his retirement. That's why I always thought they built that scene up so much the way to Cohen's do was to emphasize the importance of him entering that door to prove to himself one last time before retirement. I never thought of Anton as being a sort of ghost or something mythical but since you brought that to my attention there's something that stuck out and that was Carson's awesome speech to the businessman on what he thought of Anton. Carson refers to him as at disease or virus as the bubonic plague and is basically Pure Evil Carson never refers to him in any physical manner of a man with strengths or weaknesses. That's just my two thoughts but thanks again for the video. I'm curious to know your thoughts on the hateful eight and all the amazing subtle situations Quentin Tarantino was able to do throughout

My guess is Chigurh for some unexplained reason, like his signature coin toss, he felt there was no need to kill Bell and just slipped out of the door when Bell walked into the bathroom - it's the mystery of a mad man.

I feel like there is some missed symbolism between the store clerk picking heads as the time in the hotel room. Although the sheriff didn’t necessarily pick heads on the dime, it’s kind of like the killer gave him an out based on some type of respect or something. The basic chose correctly although did so unknowingly.

3:25 "I need you to step out of the car sir". It's funny how we can all watch a great film and get something different out of it. You think he smiles because he enjoys the power he has over his victim. I thought he smiled because he's trying to put his victim at ease. Hes trying to look "normal" and this is the best he can do. Its forced. Great critique. I love this film!

Kevin Dufresne (3 days ago)
What has always intrigued me, and I have watched this movie several times to try to figure out, is what the Sheriff was thinking when he decided to go into that hotel room near the end of the movie. He seems to live in a sort of world that he no longer understands and he has a rigidity about his thought process that does not allow him to comprehend what the world around him has become. He even mentions this to all of his cohorts. He has to suspect that Chigurh is in that room, and he has to know that to just open that door and walk in is an act of suicide if Chigurh is in that room. It seems to me that he was, himself, tossing a coin to see if it came up heads or tails. After that, he felt like this was no longer a world that he could cope with and so, retired. The end of the movie, the car crash, symbolized to me that here, you have an extremely competent killer, able to dictate the terms to everyone who he encounters, as though he is, as some of you suggest, an almost supernatural force. That car crash, to me, just reminds us that no matter how competent or powerful anyone is, random chance still has power over us all, such as a tornado, an earthquake, a tsunami or other force of nature or man.

This film is meant to intimidate American Patriots from standing up to the Mexicans who run the drug cartels. Americans need to bring to bear on them the full power of every advanced weapon system we have... and quit playing kindergarten games with them. They think they're bad ass.

Very nicely done. It was a good movie, but, not a masterpiece to me though. Now, to me a masterpiece would be "Shawshank Redemption" comes to mind. "The Exorcist" is a masterpiece in horror as well as "Jaws" is a masterpiece in thriller/adventure to me.
That was interesting. (4 days ago)
5:30- sorry, you missed the mark here I think. It wasn't "disdain for the answer" that caused Chigurh to make that face. Bardem simply incorporated "Chigurh choking on a peanut" into the performance. See those things he's eating? Hear the choking cough? He incorporated props into the performance and either intentionally appeared to, or actually did choke on a legume and they decided to keep the shot... My interpretation anyway.
John D (3 days ago)
@That was interesting - I took the 'choking on the peanut' as a surprised laugh reaction by Chigurh. The closest thing to a laugh sociopath Chigurh is capable of anyway. And he was laughing at the fact that the store owner had inherited this broken down gas station in the middle of no where. I did enjoy this movie review and it's one of my all time movie favs. The Cohen Bros are geniuses.

Chugar was a representation of the drug trade/wars that was coming in the 80's along the border. The cartels would make terror just as Anton. Anton was the embodiment of the ruthless, needless murder. In the end He got inured (car crash) because he took out an innocent, someone not really connected to the money. He was also bound to his rules. He was hurt, but not finished, as we know the war still is not over..
Jim Gibson (4 days ago)
This movie is no masterpiece. No plot to speak of. Just a killer with no backstory. The other characters are undeveloped, so there’s no reason to care about any of them. Cinematography is great, but that’s not enough to make a great movie. With every death, there is no sense of loss because we have no reason to care, we don’t know any of them. It’s nothing more than a slasher film with a big budget, and some witty, ironic Dialoge. The worst cheap element is the air tank weapon: a ridiculous, non-believable artifice to give the otherwise boring killer character some sort of memorable element....but it means nothing and is completely arbitrary. Everything about the film feels staged and exaggerated and phony.
Joe Smith (4 days ago)
Like the Cohen brothers movies, but this one was choppy in the end as if they wanted to reduce the run time. To explain, the book and movie had some missing data, chopping up the flow of the story line. The book did not provide how Chigurh knew where Moss was going to nor the motel at which he was staying. The script, however, added a scene where Chigurh was on the side of the road and a farmer with a truck full of chicken coops loaded with chickens had stopped to see what was Chigurh's problem, but it did not show how Chigurh got there or the vehicle he was with. In that scene, Chigurh asked the farmer where would one go if one want to go somewhere. The farmer finally suggested El Paso, but the scene does not explain how Chigurh knew the motel. The book also did not explain how the cartel knew where Moss was nor the motel he was staying at even though they did find and kill him. The script, however, added a scene to explain how the Mexican cartel knew where Moss was going and the motel at which they may find him. A Mexican approached the mother=in-law when she got out of the taxi that she and her daughter took to the bus station where they were taking a bus to El Paso. While the daughter went into the station the Mexican asked the mother-in-law where were they going and staying.The script did not, however, explain how the Mexican knew Moss, his wife and mother-in-law looked liked i.e., what they looked liked.

Love the breakdown Tyler. Didn't you think it was pivotal that Llewelyn awoke in the middle of the night. Returned to the scene giving the dying man a drink of water. I just remember in my gut an overwhelming sense of doom for the character. It was like anvil falling on me. I really dont remember a more impactful moment in any movie I've ever watched. To me it was like a flashing red neon sign, "Llewellyn will die at the hands of this EVIL". He had a conscience, the only real thing separating good from evil. He simply was no match for the embodiment of evil, Chigurh. Idk, maybe this reveals my own psychosis 🙄? But more than anything this is what "jumped off" the screen to me. A close 2nd was the car crash scene. To me this was a representation of Good Vs. Evil. Everyone...... leave the theater realizing that Good doesn't always win, against Pure Evil maybe it cant even compete.

Chiguhr is Evil personified. He can be a man and paradoxically a ghost. He’s a ghost as he escapes the motel room. But his humanity is confirmed when he is almost killed by the car crash. He was victimized by chance/fate—ironic since he kills people by using chance (coin flip) as the decider.

Terry Shinshock (6 days ago)
I assumed that Chigurh was in the other hotel room rented out by Llewelyn. There were two rooms. The Sheriff's choice of which room to enter was his coin toss . . . heads or tails. All was a matter of chance. He entered the room that Chigurh had already left. After the Sheriff leaves, I imagine Chigurh just casually walked out of the second room undiscovered. That's how I saw it.

Chigurh seems like the Angel of Death. He is more an archetype than a real character. I teach this novel to high school seniors and one of the exercises is to identify the archetypes in the story. Bell is a good shepherd trying to care for his flock. Moss is the everyman who cannot walk away from the temptation that ultimately destroys him. Bell and Moss are real people, we all know these guys, but Chigurh comes from the primordial mass. He does things that defy reason. Wells has to plug in a special code to get to the 17th floor to meet the corporate sponsors of this freakshow, but Chigurh just walks up the 17 flights of stairs and punches the lock out of the secret door, that nobody knows about. He then slaughters the man who hired Wells and watches him die for fun. This is not to mention the untold number of bodies that he disposes of with casual indifference throughout the film. I agree with the comment by Sly about the soundtrack. The sense of uneasiness pervades the entire film. I respectfully don't agree with Alexander. I think the final scene has Chigurh walking off to show that the evil is still out there. We can crash into this primordial force and maybe slow it down for a while, but we can never stop it.

Kelvin Kibler (7 days ago)
I just watched this video, well done! Chigurh to me was driven by a insane sense of duty and purpose. Every murder he committed was connected to a need to completely finish his task, reclaiming the money. Even when he showed up killing the wife at her mother's house is was to retrieve any money left and to fulfill the promise he made to Llewelyn that he would have to kill both of them. The fact that the Sheriff did not encounter Chigurh makes me wonder if Chigurh felt no need to, or like the man at the store before the storekeeper talked, decided that there were more pressing things to handle. Just my thoughts.
Baron Zaebos (7 days ago)
I think it's possible to go into too much analysis until it just becomes entirely subjective. Even Cormac Mccarthy probably never put so much subtextual meaning into his plots or characters. This is one of the drawbacks of any kind of artistic analysis - the author or artist never fully explains the hidden meanings, often because they don't truly understand it themselves. They simply put it out there for us to interpret. Then the film maker comes along and exercises every technical skill possible to play around, subvert and even contradict some of the original intended meanings, messages and signifiers. And as indicated in the comments section below, we are all drawing different conclusions as to what those things mean. To my experience if a film leaves too many outstanding questions then it raises the prospect that even the makers weren't fully aware as to what the overall observation is and why it matters. Why can't a film be entertaining and symbolically consistent?

One of the things that made this movie so hard to understand was caused by a casting error. They had intended to hire James Brolin, but signed his son Josh by mistake. Josh, being 30 years too young for the role, ruined the chemistry and dynamic of two old men (both anachronisms in a modern, terrifying world) dealing with a monster, and made many of the finer, subtle aspects of the story confusing throughout the film.

Today's American movie audiences need to be educated so that Hollywood follows suit with more intelligent films like this. Because Hollywood has been reduced to making the films that sell the quickest, they have been dumbed down which, in turn, has dumbed down American audiences so that the day of intelligent movie making disappears for good.

The Sheriff's return to the motel is one of the greatest scenes ever. In the above analysis you seem to present the sheriff as a kind of failure, but that couldn't be further from the truth. In that moment in the film he overcomes his greatest fear, and proves himself to be the true hero of the story. In the end, the dream is basically his ancestors giving him their approval. Showing him that he is one of them. A man who puts honor and his oath to serve and protect above self-interest, even to the point of sacrificing his own personal safety and facing his deepest fears.

I don't think it says anything bad about Bell that he retired. He's a man in his sixties. He did his duty and now it's time. And, yeah, the fact that Chigurh was not in the room when Bell opened its door was the defining moment of the film. It speaks to the chaos that is at the heart of all Coen movies. What else can it mean but that Chigurh is the chaos the Bell archetype seeks to limit, but just is constitutionally incapable of doing anything meaningful about? I mean, that the next time we see Bell he is either foreshadowing his own death with his recounting of his dream about his father, or dwelling on the fundamental injustice of life with the scene with his paraplegic relative, shows that he has not escaped the tragedy that Chigurh's character embodies. None of us have. As the document my psychiatrist's office makes you sign before your first treatment says: eventually every one of us will lose everything. We can't stop it.

Tyler, your perception and commentary about this movie sucks. You've missed way too many of the elements, the people who make a movie happen, the cinematography, costume, set decoration, makeup, etc., the people who make a movie. You've simply offered your narration of the story. I suggest you research Joel and Ethan Coen in order to comment on a great movie...and then some... lots of research, that is.

I always thought Chigurh was hiding behind the motel room door when the sheriff opened it. I just couldn't figure out why he didn't kill the sheriff. Maybe it was too risky for him as some of the sheriff's deputies might be outside, similar to the way he spared the trailer park manager when he heard the toilet flush.

You missed the first key line and connection of the two main characters. Lewellen’s first spoken words are the same as Cugur’s in the previous scene! “Hold still” just before he shoots the animal. They’re both killers of what they see as killable. Lewellen see animals as targets where Cugur sees people. Also, at the gas station scene, he slightly choked on the nuts giving the viewer the feint hope that the killer may choke to death, and also that he’s human after all.
