No Country For Old Men

Revealing mistake: In the scene at the motel where Chigurh kills three men, he goes to sit on the bed where he removes his socks. In the background one of the 'dead' men opens his eyes and looks around.

Factual error: When Chigurh is in the gas station talking to the clerk, behind him on the shelf is a pack of Jack Link's beef jerky. The movie is set in 1980, but Jack Link's did not start selling beef jerky until 1986.

Factual error: At the very end of the movie, right before Javier Bardem is in the car accident, there is a shot out the driver's side window, past his face. In one of the driveways he is passing, a new Subaru Forester sits parked. The film is set in 1980.

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).

Ingabritzen

Trivia: The scene in which Chigurh strangles the deputy was achieved with a metal chestplate on the deputy. It covered him from the middle of his chest to the jaw. Several different ones were made, each with the handcuffs in deeper.

Trivia: The same black satchel that's used for the money appears in Fargo (1996), also a movie by the Coen brothers.

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.

Twotall

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.
