From the celebrated filmmaking team of Joel Coen and Ethan Coen (No Country for Old Men, The Big Lebowski, Fargo), Blood Simple is a witty and stylish film noir about a double-cross and murder in a small town.

Starring an assembly of great character actors, Blood Simple has launched the careers of the Coen Brothers. It was also the first major film of cinematographer and director Barry Sonnenfeld (Men in Black, Get Shorty).

M. Emmett Walsh (Blade Runner) plays Visser, an unscrupulous private eye hired by Texas bar owner Marty (Dan Hedaya: The Usual Suspects) to murder Marty's faithless wife Abby (Frances McDormand: Burn After Reading) and her lover, Ray (John Getz: The Social Network), one of Marty's employees. But Visser is not more up-front with Marty than with anyone else; he makes some slight modifications of the original plan so that it better serves his own best interests. After a surprise double-cross and the murder of one of the important players, matters spiral out of control.

This Director's Cut is three minutes shorter than the original 1985 theatrical release. The Coens reduced the running time with tighter editing, shortening some shots and removing others altogether. In addition, they resolved long-standing right issues with the music.

Blood Simple won the Grand Jury Prize at the 1985 Sundance Film Festival.
