I've seen this great film about three or four times but something vital and seemingly absent without explanation suddenly dawned on me yesterday...

That beacon tracked box containing millions of dollars of drug money was the focal point of everything that everyone revolved around during this entire awesome movie...

When the psycho killer finally caught up to and killed the guy who found that box of money i'm obviously assuming he finally got it and took it along with him...

But then when the psycho killer was waiting for the wife of the guy he just killed to return home from her husbands funeral he didnt have that box of money with him...

And when the psycho killers car was smashed into and he walked away with a bone sticking out of his arm at the end of the film he wasnt carrying it away with him either...

So where the hell was it and what the hell happened to it?

In the novel, Chigurh took it and gave it back to a third party. In the film, it is left unclear, but Chigurh has taken the grill from the vent out so he could have found it there and been surprised by the sheriff before he could leave. He gave the boy on the bike $100 for his shirt in the same way that Moss had earlier.

Chigurh took the money to someone the novel only describes as "the man", presumably a very rich individual as he had provided the $2.4 million for the purchase of the Mexican drugs. Chigurh even had enough respect to show up in a suit and tie as he met this "man" at his office. Chigurh gave all of the money back to him, minus what was already stolen by Moss and minus some expenses Chigurh had to do. Total there remained about $2.2 million given to this "man".

Chigurh had done this because it was implied that he was interested in "working" for this man, to who knows to what extent but presumably in a line of work that Chigurh is already so good at (only with guaranteed work now), and this act would've definitely sealed the deal.

Something else thats unique about this awesome film is that theres no music meaning theres no soundtrack playing at all during the film and music is something vital that the vast majority of all films depend upon to heighten action and suspense and this film is so intriguing the fact there is no music is hardly even noticed while watching it especially the first time...

When I first watched this film towards the ending when the killers car gets slammed into and smashed I literally was jolted by the sudden and unexpected shock of it and my body jumped and actually the only other time I can think of when a movie scene had a similar effect upon me was during the movie called the patriot when a cannon ball was fired from a distance and then came flying right at the camera closer and closer and those effects were while watching them on a relatively small television screen and I can only imagine the stun effect they must have had on a much larger theater screen,that is,if the people watching were actually paying attention...

Youre not supposed to know what happened to the money.

If you want to know, that means you would have died too.

As far as the movie goes,when the killer walks away injured at the end of the movie,why wasnt he carrying the box of money he spent so much time and effort trying to find?

But was that intentionally or accidentally not shown and explained by the script writers or directors who whoever?

What was the point of totally ignoring the entire focal point of this film at the end?
