Blood Simple

40th Anniversary Screening!

M. Emmet Walsh Tribute Film

Deep in the heart of Texas, a sleazy bar owner suspects his wife of having an affair and hires a private detective to confirm his suspicions—only to have the crosshairs turned back on himself.

1984, 97 Minutes, Directed by Joel Coen, Rated R

  • "If you are squeamish, here is the film to make you squeam."

    - Roger Ebert, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
  • "Filled with wonderful performances, especially by Hedaya and Walsh, Blood Simple remains a tight, beautifully ugly, neo-noir classic."

  • "I love the movie's originality, its sense of macabre humor, its resourcefulness, and the great Walsh, whose memorable narration kicks off the movie."

    - Desson Thomson, WASHINGTON POST
  • "It's like watching Alfred Hitchcock try to solve a Rubik's cube in a roadside diner."

    - Hannah Brown, NEW YORK POST
