Joel Coen United States, 1984

Cichlisuite's rating of the film Blood Simple

While the characterisation is weak and the credibility of the plot questionable it provides enough cleverness, wit and style, with mostly solid dialogue and good acting to be properly enjoyable on the rewatch. I think I enjoyed it even more than the first time (having had a long interval). Wondered how I didn't pick the tipping of their hats to Blade Runner on first viewing? The scenes seemed so obvious this time.
