Crime • R • 1984 • 1 hr 37 min
One of the best suspense movies I’ve ever seen. The Coen bros do a fantastic job in their directorial debut. Keeps you guessing what’s next.
Fantastic thriller, great cast, very tense and disturbing at times, about as good as Fargo and No Country For Old Men
The first, and in my opinion best Coen brothers film. A mega memorable crime drama set in a hopeless Desolate Texas landscape.
Classic Coen Brothers neo-noir, taut thriller, superb story and script in this underrated gem. Must see for us Coen Brothers fans,
A fun twisty-turny drama. Wild that this was a debut!
Compared to the rest of the Coens' anthology this one might be a bit...simple. But it goes to show that from the start they always had chops
Gritty and beautifully shot, pretty amazing simple film
An excellent debut from the Coen brothers. A shockingly violent noir thriller that still holds up and shows the greatness yet to come.
Supposedly Tarantino cried when he saw this movie for the first time
The Coen bros debut film showcases the strengths they display in the years to come
