Reviews
Mine: Great thriller. Chilling. Amazing visuals. Scene in the field is particularly memorable. Spectacular debut for the Cohen Brothers.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Flamboyant homage to film noir made on a shoestring by brothers Joel and Ethan Coen in Texas. A cuckolded husband hires slimy character to kill his wife and her boyfriend... but that's just the beginning of this serpentine story. A visual delight, full of show-offy stylistics; just a bit ``cold around the heart,'' to quote an earlier noir classic. McDormand's film debut.
