Blood Simple. (1984) Film Review

Blood_simple

Abby (Frances McDormand) and Ray (John Getz) are having an affair and when her husband, Julian Marty (Dan Hedaya), finds out, he wants to end them. Add in a strange Private Detective, Loren Visser (M. Emmet Walsh) and things get really messy.

This is the first of the Coen brother films, and it’s a really interesting one. It’s confusing and almost stilted at times and it feels cheap and dated, but essentially, it’s a bloody good first film. And with a maddening and amazing final shot.

  1. Sounds like a really dark neo noir.
