Sat opposite Anton Chigurh with a silenced shotgun pointed at him, Carson Wells plucks up the courage to ask the question we've all wanted someone to ask: "Do you have any idea how crazy you are?"

Crazy, for sure. But intelligent also. And given there's a fine line between genius and insanity, we make no apologies for including the musings of a murderous madman in our pearls of wisdom from No Country For Old Men.

Fortunately we have also included astute foresight from the rather more balanced characters, too...

And here are 20 things you (probably) didn't know about the movie

1. "You should admit your situation. There would be more dignity in it."

(Chigurh)

2. "If the rule you followed brought you to this, of what use was the rule?"

(Chigurh)

3. "Age will flatten a man."

(Bell)

4. "Even in the contest between man and steer the issue is not certain."

(Bell)

5. "All the time you spend trying to get back what's been took from you, more is going out the door."

(Ellis)

(Bell)

7. "You don't need to know everything."

(Moss)

8. "Things happened. I can't take 'em back."

(Moss)

9. "Hitchhiking. Dangerous."

(Hitchhiking Driver)

10. "You don't want to lie without what it's absolutely necessary."

(Bell)

11. "I laugh myself sometimes. There ain't a whole lot else you can do."

(Bell)

12. "Pick up the one right tool."

(Chigurh)

13. "Beer leads to more beer."
