    Blood Simple

    ★★★½

    Perplexing and mixed feelings about lots of things in this.
    Really wouldn't know what to say about the Coen Brothers debut, even though I believe that it's the score that makes it stand out above anything else.

    This is not for everyone, this an insane lecture from an old cynic. Equal parts hilarious and disturbing.
    This is bitterness, misanthropy, murder, mayhem, chaos, and truth. And art and love.
    All of it manifested through some of the most thought-provoking images, symbolism and metaphors put to film. The research must've been insane…
