Blood Simple. 1984

From Amazon: The debut film of director Joel Coen and his brother-producer Ethan Coen, 1983's Blood Simple is grisly comic noir that marries the feverish toughness of pulp thrillers with the ghoulishness of even pulpier horror. (Imagine the novels of Jim Thompson somehow fused with the comic tabloid Weird Tales, and you get the idea.) The story concerns a Texas bar owner (Dan Hedaya) who hires a seedy private detective (M. Emmett Walsh) to follow his cheating wife (Frances McDormand in her first film appearance), and then kill her and her lover (John Getz).

This is a Coen brother noir, and it is their first film also. Joel and Ethan have done some marvelous work (Fargo, O Brother, Where Art Thou?, Intolerable Cruelty) and I am...

Blood Simple. Movie Review by David Hurlbert (7/10/2006)

Blood Simple (1984) is an engrossing film noir fraught with cold insights, energetic scenes, and ruthless indications in a myriad of twists and turns about life and the endless possibilities of where it all may lead.

This movie is magically dark and marks an auspicious debut for director Joel Coen and the Coen brothers...
