funkyflights : Javier was brilliant in this movie, his character made this movie ...

Grim Seawolf : How I feel in Skyrim deciding or not if I’m gonna kill this random npc

Trevor Locke : Absolute psychopath

xXSilentAgent47Xx : Two-Face Origins.

samarth here : Another interesting fact: this film does not have a soundtrack. None!

Jay Aguilera : When a server ask me: how would you like your steak sir? Me: *anton voice* WELL DONE

Kekkeroni : that friendly eyebrow raise anton made to the old man after the coin toss eased the tension lol. you know at that point the old man was home free

minx : According to psychiatrists Anton Chigurh is the most accurate portrayal of a psychopath in cinematic history.

ray Gordon : The Candy wrapper has it's own IMDB page

muhammad amin sarabi : I pissed myself😐

Jonathan Willow : He is just distracting the old man from the fact that he did not pay.

Samsaranian Supreme : "So i you have a order of double bacon cheese burger with curly fries and a large shake, will that complete your order?" I dont know, will it?...

demo2382 : After that moment, the old man was cured from small talk.

jnixa1010 : What a fantastic scene. Both actors were exquisite, and the dialogue is perfect. This is literally cinematic perfection in 4 minutes

Kermit Hitler : Such a simple scene yet so utterly brilliant

Jacno77 : we're made to feel for the old man because we don't want to see a good man punished. His good qualities were his humbleness , his courtesy by calling him "sir" even though he was being threatened by a great evil, which chances are he'll be courteous to everyone (including us) and he was a working man, which he is useful to others. Random but I thought I'd throw this out there.

Emil : Picture this guy and the Joker having a conversation

glasstorso : Gonna try this at my local gas station the next time I don't feel like spending $3.99 for a small pack of M&Ms. .

Joseph Clark : Great scene but there's one problem usually those old country folks have a sawed off underneath the counter in reality this would have ended very differently

TWO76 : Just Incredible Acting from Both characters here ...such a powerful scene love it.

Surigen 12 : if that can get any more twisted inside Chigurh's head: at the end, he looks genuinely happy for that old man, with that quick "well done!". As if it wasn't he who controlled the whole situation, he who could have just simply walked out without doing the whole coin tossing thing. This makes Chigurh even more weird and psychopathic...

Elixus : The purpose of the scene is to compare human life to a coin toss. When he says the coin has been traveling since 1958, the coin itself has been exchanged between many hands and is now 22 years old. It could have easily ended up somewhere else - in a drain, on the ground, or “dead.” When it is tossed, “calling it” is similar to the decisions we make in life that will lead to good or bad outcomes or “the most we gain or lose on a coin toss.” “You’ve been putting it up your whole life,” our decisions could lead to outcomes as black or white as life or death, and we wouldn’t know about it until we face the consequences. The fact the attendant is aged means that he has made many good decisions in his life that has led him to live this long, similar to the coin. The outcome of the coin toss is mysterious until we see the outcome, similar to the consequences stemming from the decisions we make every day.

Arse Robinson : pause 4:19

P3t3r 141 : I remember watching this scene whilst having a massive anxiety attack

von reeves : My heart was in my throat at this moment!

Scream Of Sodak : English teacher showed me this back when I was 16 in writing class to teach us about tension and suspense, I don’t think he could have taught it any better. This scene is forever in my mind when I think of a legendary scene, everything about it is perfect.

TheMetalhead678 : This scene is god damn tense! Poor old man must've been scared out of his mind. This guy is intimidating.

Proximate Cause : "Generally around dark..." -gestures to window- " dark." Outside window: Mid-afternoon sunshine

Siervo : That's scary! 😟

Ian Christopher : Anton Chigurh went mad when the gas station owner started asking him too many questions because some police officer could interrogate him in the future about Chigurh and where he was heading.Chigurh started to verbally threat the man's life and he didn't even notice it.Then after he had enough of the old man he pulled out the coin toss to see if he really deserved to die as he said "You've been putting it up your whole life,you just didn't know it." The old man calls it and luckily survives the "game" and Chigurh tells him to not put it in his pocket cause this is practically his whole life all in that coin otherwise it will mix in with the others and become just another coin,which it is,the last part meaning that his life is meaningless like any other ordinary coin,like any other ordinary life.He leaves,threat this man's life,says that his life is meaningless and he didn't realise any of this.He probably never will.

Doogie Carpit Burger Smooth Geryd Street : "Don't put it in your pocket it's your lucky quarter!!"

Gareth Pugh : Perfect scene.

roger wilson : Just think there’s people out there like that

Lee Bartlett : This is the only film adaptation of a book that is word for word,scene for scene the book on celluloid. But this scene grabs me by the throat every time I watch it and just squeezes the air slowly from my lungs...and they said the book was unfilmable!!

TheSuperSaiyanGoku1 : I need to see this movie now.

A T : It's interesting how Chigurh seemed relieved after the shop owner won the coin toss, It looks like he didn't want to kill him but since he annoyed him with the picky question at the beginning of their conversation, his twisted personality forced him to put his life at the hand of a coin toss call

guerrerodude : Friendo.

Dolethetuber : Well, that's one way to get out of paying for gas and peanuts.

aryan jenil : Pure psychopath

Jack Smith : Literally one of the most terrifying scenes in film history.... AND IT’S A COIN TOSS! While Javier was easily the Best Supporting Actor of the year (IMO anyway), this scene definitely cemented his position as maybe even the Best Supporting Actor of the entire decade.

Japagow Trio : Perfect tension.

svfutbol20 : One of my favorite scenes in film ever

Jose Rodriguez : Wow. 2:40 Even the candy wrapper was scared to unwrap.

0532MOET : I don't remember this bit from the movie, I might have fallen asleep because the movie was so boring but

Edward Polo : How to waste time to avoid paying full price

Aboodi Az : That was intense.

Paperclips : Jesus Christ. One of the only scenes that has made me feel uneasy and anxious

Billy Casagrand : Love this scene

Nickolas Kupper : This is a STRANGE Texaco commercial.

Michael Rowland : Intimidation only makes me more interested in solving his problem. Wish I was the old man
