Synopsis: "Blood Simple" was the first feature film from Joel and Ethan Coen. This is the newly restored and re-edited director's cut of the film, introduced by Mortimer Young. The stylish crime thriller premiered at film festivals in 1984. "Blood Simple" begins deep in the heart of Texas, where a jealous saloon owner hires a cheap divorce detective to kill the saloon owner's younger wife and her bartender lover. But the detective gets a better idea: he follows the two lovers, and...

She looks at the man.

WOMAN:

...What was that back there?

MAN:

Back where?

WOMAN:

Sign.

MAN:

I don't know. Motel... Abby--

WOMAN:

Ray. Did you mean that, what you

said before, or were you just being

a gentleman?

MAN:

Abby, I like you, but it's no point

starting anything now.

WOMAN:

Yeah.

MAN:

I mean, I ain't a marriage counselor--

WOMAN:

Yeah.

The man is uncomfortable.

MAN:

...What do you want to do?

The woman is uncomfortable. After a long pause:

WOMAN:

...What do you want to do?

MOTEL ROOM:

Pulling back from RAY and ABBY in bed, making love.

The only light is from cars passing along the highway outside.

Each sweeping light-by ends in black.

The pullback ends in a wide shot of the motel room. The black

following the last car lingers.

A telephone rings.

SAME WIDE SHOT MORNING
