Blood Simple – Eine mörderische Nacht: Directed by Joel Coen, Ethan Coen. With John Getz, Frances McDormand, Dan Hedaya, M. Emmet Walsh. The owner of a seedy small-town Texas bar discovers that one of his employees is having an affair with his wife. A chaotic chain of misunderstandings, lies and mischief ensues after he devises a plot to have them murdered.

“This film is the Coen brothersu0026#39; homage to the great noir thrillers of the golden age. Cheating spouses, feckless private dicks, mistaken identities, a bundle of dirty cash are rendered to their bare essence in the mess of rotting fish sitting on Martyu0026#39;s desk. The film is notable as much for the audacity of the Coen brothers in getting it made as it is for its success in turning the broad, open expanses of west texas into a claustrophobia unknown even to Saddam in his spider hole. It appears the Coens made five minutes of the film to show to investors, though they had absolutely no idea what the rest of the film would look like. They basically sold the mood of the film, and their efforts bore fruit. The film established the Coen brothers as a creative force and Frances McDormand as a rising art house star whose journey would eventually garner Oscar for the Coensu0026#39; u0026quot;Fargo.u0026quot; I rate it highly for visual appeal, intelligent story and good sheer suspense and terror.”
