The coin-toss is Anton Chigurh’s way of delivering his brand of justice, or is it? Maybe it’s just him delivering a message.
In this video I analyze the two coin toss scenes from No Country for Old Men. The first at the gas station and the second at the end. What’s the difference between the two, and how do the Coen brothers deliver that message using camera angles, blocking, cinematography and movement?
Note: I say Carla didn’t “toss the coin”, I mean’t ‘call’, not toss.
