Thrilling

I watched the Coen brothers' "Blood Simple" last night. It's their first film and absolutely fabulous. If you like a really good thriller then I highly recommend it, plus...look how adorably young Frances McDormand is in it. This interview cracks me up:

Can you imagine - he'd always have that three years and three inches over him. That would SHIT me.

I remember watching this in first year uni - and feeling physically ill afterwards. First film to ever do that to me. They are very gifted blokes. Have you seen animal kingdom yet?? Most definitely another fail for the B test...
