No Country for old men

The Gas station scene from No Country For Old Men is one of the most famous scenes in the film. Its intensity and darkness grips the viewer from the off.

The dressing of the scene is also perfect for the time period and the location of the station. A cluttered small shop with items hung up everywhere adds to the small quite country shop. The shop Eco's the personality of the clerk friendly open and local. The smiley face stickers also give a good contrast between the mood of the piece and the vibe of the store.

The vast open plain behind the clerk also shows the remoteness of the station which also puts him in danger in this instant and the audience can feel that danger!!
