Flight To Tangier appears in No Country For Old Men.
18 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was the movie Carla Jean was watching in " No Country For Old Men" when Lewellyn returned with the drug money.

Why did the Coen Brothers select this film? They certainly had seen this film and selected it for some oblique artistic reason or simply because they liked the movie. I've never seen this film. Is there some aspect of Flight To Tangier" that links it to "No Country For Old Men?"

Would anyone disagree that the Coen Brothers are way too sophisticated and detailed oriented to simply throw any movie on a television one of their characters was viewing?
