No Country For Old Men

Question: How did Chigurh get his gun back? After the shootout in the hotel, when Moss is first hit, occupies the car and then shoots Chigurh, Chigurh disappears and Moss takes his gun. Moss then drives to the border with the car, and presumably dumps them somewhere or leaves them in the car. Well, when Chigurh later kills Carson Welles, he has his gun back. How did he get it back? Did he find the car, if it was in there? Did he buy a new one?

Chosen answer: It was a different gun. He kills Carson with a shotgun, while the gun Moss picks up is a silenced SMG by the looks of it.

Question: The movie does not have a soundtrack at all, yet during the end credits, music is heard. What is the name of that music?

Chosen answer: "Blood Trail (end titles)" By Carter Burwell, the Coen's frequent composer. The Film does not have a soundtrack, but you can listen to it in Carter Burwell's website: http://www.carterburwell.com/projects/NCFOM.html.

Question: The border guard who questions Llewelyn when he returns from Mexico seems a lot like M. Emmet Walsh. Since he was the lead character in the Coen brothers debut, "Blood Simple", it is likely that he's making a cameo for them. Is it him?

Chosen answer: No. Brandon Smith is credited with playing the part.

Question: What happened to the money?

Chosen answer: The dime Sheriff Bell finds in the room strongly implies that the money had been hidden in the vent by Moss, and had been retrieved by Chigurh.

Question: Did Chigurh shoot the accountant in Stehpen Root's office? The IMDB FAQ claims that he didn't, thinking that the accountant didn't look at Chigurh's face - However, the accountant DID look at Chigurh's face. Right after Chigurh says, "That depends - do you see me?", he turns around and looks at the accountant in the eyes. They both stare at each other. So my question is, after my explanation - Did Chigurh shoot the accountant?

Chosen answer: That's intentionally left ambiguous - it's open to your own interpretation.

Answer: Of course he killed the accountant. When the accountant asked Chigurh if he was going to kill him and Chigurh replied by asking "Do you see me?", Chigurh might have been saying, "Of course I'm going to kill you, you're a witness, " but I think he was telling the accountant that the question was as dumb as if he asked the accountant if the accountant saw him when the accountant was looking right at him.

Question: How did Anton find Llewellyn's home?

Chosen answer: When Llewellyn returns to the site of the showdown for the second time, he leaves his truck parked in an obvious spot. Coming across the truck later, Anton prizes off a plate from Llewellyn's truck that has the VIN on it. This is likely how Anton later tracked Llewellyn down.

Trivia

After burning and exploding a car, Anton Chigurh enters in a pharmacy called Mike Zoss Pharmacy, to steal syringes, antibiotics and other stuff. The Coen brothers hung out at the real "Mike Zoss Drugs" when they were growing up and named it after him in the film as an homage. Mike Zoss Productions is the name of their production company (also named after the same man).
