Did I mention how nice it is to be done with the awful movies section of our blog (ok, I've got one more to go)?
Do the Cohen brothers like to have random events and plot turns in their movies or what? "Blood Simple" is another great example of why the Cohen brothers are different. "Blood Simple" is a much less complicated story than "No Country for Old Men," but it's the same basic idea. One character decides to do something nefarious and hilarity, insanity, and unpredictability ensue. I honestly don't know what more to say about it.
One of my favorite parts (other than the knife through the hand) was when the paramour was burying the husband and low and behold husband had the gun (which ironically he had given wife and which PI had used to shoot husband) and he pulls the trigger to defend himself to no avail. Because it was a Cohen brothers film, you didn't really know whether it was going to go off or not. Brilliant.
