I agree its a Coen Brother's movie so it will be out of the typical hollywood norm. Good movie.

The ending is Tommy's character's reflection that in his older age the world is becoming a terribly, rapidly changing place that has no place for him.

Every person at some age realizes this. (example....I used to think I knew everything about music in the 80s90s.....now in my late thirties now I don't know shit or who is the hot band today.)




Tommy Lee Jones (Sheriff) sees the world as this:

Anton (bad guy) is represented as the devil/evil. He doesn't kill for money but for priniciple because that is who he is. He consumes everything in his path.

Carson (Woody Harrelson) is an angel send by God (man in big tower) to warn Moss and to try and protect him but understands that Moss has free will to do as he choses.

Moss is a decent man caught in evil's web trying to confront it head on and beat it.

The Sheriff comments that as a good will enforcer, he is a step behind, outdated and has no place in a world like this.

Those things I figured. You word it well. Thanks... but I meant by weird little things that the brothers threw in and I'm not sure why they bothered to include it or why the movie went that direction. For instance:
Why does Anton have the wreck? To show he has the money? His vulnerability? The demise of Moss was cheap and quick? Seems silly he would let his guard down so easily.

Anton's wreck does puzzle me. I'm thinking its either God taking a swing at him or the movie is showing that we all, good or bad, live in a world of chance. Life can be fragile and you never know what comes around the corner or in Anton's case....an intersection.


On Moss I believe that it was trying to show that Moss let his guard down due to a pretty lady (which happens to the best of us.)
