A good movie

I had actually already seen this flick but it was ages ago so it definitely needed a re-watch. The most impressive thing about this directing debut was to see that the Coen brothers had their own style right from the very beginning. I mean, right from the very first minutes, with this very sarcastic voice-over, they established their very own tone and style, and 30 years later, they still have thi... read more

Abby is cheating on her saloonkeeper husband, Marty. The object of her affections is Ray, one of Marty's bartenders. Marty hires Visser, an unscrupulous detective, to kill them. But Visser has other, more lucrative plans of his own. So begins a calculating round of double and triple crosses that build to a bloodcurdling, surprise-filled climax.

"24.08.2015 "If you point a gun at someone, you'd better make sure you shoot him, and if you shoot him you'd better make sure he's dead, because if he isn't then he's gonna get up and try to kill you." I love the Coen brothers. They are two of my all time favorite directors, but for some reason i have never gotten around to watching this one until now. I can't believe it took me that long. This was a great, pulpy crime film. This is the Coen's first film and they already showed that they knew w"

Miika's Movie Diary - 2015 (436 movies items)

"31.3, TV Teknisiä kikkoja käytetään kameran kanssa kivasti ja tästä jäi semmoinen mukava tekemisen meiningillä tehdyn pienimuotoisen, mutta toimivan elokuvan jälkimaku suuhun. Tunnelma oli parhaimmillaan erittäin tiivistä, ja etenkin loppukohtaukset ja maantiekohtaus olivat maltillisuudessaan tehokkaita ja hienoja."

“I had actually already seen this flick but it was ages ago so it definitely needed a re-watch. The most impressive thing about this directing debut was to see that the Coen brothers had their own style right from the very beginning. I mean, right from the very first minutes, with this very sarcastic voice-over, they established their very own tone and style, and 30 years later, they still have this unique touch which is quite remarkable. Since they were just starting, the scale was rather small, you just had a handful of characters, and, to be honest, the story was a little too pedestrian but, like I said before, they were above all interested in the mood and they definitely succeeded in this area. The other interesting thing about this flick is how they created no character who seemed sma” read more
