I really enjoyed the movie primarily for Anton Chigurh's murderous single-mindedness. I vote for him to be the poster child for human evolution, the Che Guevara for survival of the fittest. This is a fascinating set of story lines but you're better off reading the book if you can't understand the movie. The Coen brothers have taken four significant shortcuts that are like stutters, stumbles, or myoclonic jerks (the Coens are so expert they can literally sleepwalk the production of a movie) in the flow of the film. For example, how does the killer find the killer sent to kill him - if you want to know then read the book.
