No Country for Old Men...Questions

Awesome movie, just saw it. But it kinda left me wondering a little bit, did I miss something, or is the ending THIS open ended... (spoilers below)






1) Who has the money? Anton doesn't I don't think, did the Mexicans get it?

2) What was the point of Tommy Lee Jones' dream recollection? Did I miss something?

I liked the movie a lot, and really enjoyed it, the ending kinda started tailing away for me. I have the feeling another viewing will help it a lot, but I enjoyed it. I'd give it an 8/10 on first viewing. But anyone with the same questions as me, or better yet, answers?

The point the film makes, from what I took is that america today ("today" concerning as far away as then until now) is No Country For Old Men (Tommy Lee Jones' old man, the sheriff, is a case in point). The events depicted throughout the rest of the movie, illustrate why.
