Stefan Wink's rating of the film Blood Simple

This is surely one of the best films to watch when you want to enjoy the craft of filmmaking. No shot is displaced in this highly efficient choice of coverage and the whole plot unfolds fully in the viewers head through this stunning use of montage. Sound design, light and a seemingly endless pool of ideas culminate in this masterpiece of irony. Pure suspense!
