This razor-sharp modern film noir, the first film by Joel and Ethan Coen, introduced the brothers’ inimitable black humor and eccentric sense of character, a sensibility that has helped shape the course of contemporary American cinema. Deep in the heart of Texas, a sleazy bar owner suspects his wife of having an affair and hires a private detective to confirm his suspicions — only to have the crosshairs turned back on himself. Playfully shot by Barry Sonnenfeld and featuring a haunting score by Carter Burwell and a cunning performance by Frances McDormand, Blood Simple was a career-launching film for this ensemble and the first articulation of the precision of style that has defined the Coens’ work ever since.

It is an amazing movie and it has now had a 4K restoration thanks to Janus Films.

The film stars Frances McDormand, John Getz, Dan Hedaya, and M. Emmet Walsh.

It is getting a limited cinema release – July 1, 2016 (NY, SF), July 29, 2016 (LA). It then hits blu-ray and DVD on September 20, 2016.
