See Frances McDormand in her debut role in the film that put the Coen Brothers on the map.

Blood Simple is the Coen Brothers’ first feature film, and it stars Frances McDormand in her first film role ever. The film also stars Dan Hedaya, John Getz, Samm-Art Williams, and M. Emmet Walsh (in a role that will scare the living daylights out of you). Fun fact! Holly Hunter also has an uncredited voice acting part in the film. I have always been a huge Coen Brothers/Frances McDormand fan and discovered Blood Simple much later in my appreciation of their work. I have since recommended it to everyone, seen it multiple times and I’m always impressed by its cleverness and simplicity every time I watch it. Criterion has also selected it for its collection, making it a must-watch for cinephiles.
