Blood Simple
director:
Joel Coen
cast:
John Getz, Frances McDormand, Dan Heydaya

The Coen brothers’ first feature length film is a comic noir revenge thriller. We can’t give away the whole plot, but it starts when a sleazy Texan saloon owner decides to do away with his wife and her lover by hiring someone to kill them; the killer, needless to say, has other ideas. Hailed as, among other things, “one of the most brazenly self-assured directorial debuts in American film history,” (NY Magazine) this smart spine-tingler features Frances McDormand (Fargo’s irresistible Marge Gunderson) as the witless and wayward wife.
