Over a quarter-century after the fact, the Coens haven't made anything quite like Blood Simple, which receives a solid transfer on this Fox Blu-ray.
The movie provides some great twists and a look at two of America's most respected filmmakers cutting their teeth.
| Original Score: 3/5
Despite... limited means, the movie has a nice polish -- perhaps a little rough around some of the edges -- but it holds its own visually...
| Original Score: 3.5/4
Neatly tricked out with expressive camera angles that stylize scenes without becoming too gimmicky, Blood Simple looks too good to have been shot as an independent quickie.
...a classic noir-style thriller...
...enough twists and turns to keep you off a roller coaster for years.
