Blood Simple. (1984)

One of Joel and Ethan Coen's greatest films (and their first), Blood Simple carries us through the major splash created by an adulterous affair followed by a murder. The setting is a small town in Texas and the protagonist is the wife of an embittered bar owner. She decides to carry-on with one of the bartenders and they both become the target of a hit man.

The Coen's help us through the painstaking agony of covering up murders, escaping murder and committing murder using superb film techniques and selfish characters.
