Directed by Joel Coen and Ethan Coen | 1984

With Frances McDormand, Dan Hedaya, M. Emmet Walsh

"A blood-soaked nightmare in which greed and lust trap the characters in escalating horror."
—Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

The Coen brothers introduced audiences to their offbeat sensibility with this stylish pulp thriller about a Texas bar owner (Hedaya) who hires a detective (Walsh) to kill his cheating wife (McDormand). Unfolding in a twisty maze of murder, misunderstanding, and betrayal, Blood Simple is arguably the most sensational directorial debuts ever—playing like Dashiell Hammett crossed with Evil Dead and laced with a cool sense of irony.
