Joel Coen United States, 1984

Mitch North's rating of the film Blood Simple

The best way to sum up the movie is high-highs and low-lows. At its peak, it's a superb, emotionally-wrought thriller that often had me on the edge of my seat. It takes a downturn half-way through so I think it's a bit too long. Overall, very striking.
