1/18/1985 The Coen brothers go Blood Simple

January 18, 1985.  Two amazing cinematic careers started on this day when Joel and Ethan Coen's first movie - directed by Joel and written by both - was released.

A rich man hires a private eye to kill his wife and her lover, but this is Coen territory and nothing goes as planned.  The movie has what might be the best last line of a crime flick since John Huston kicked Hammett out in favor of Shakespeare in The Maltese Falcon.
