Blood Simple: Director's Cut

 
Dir. Joel & Ethan Coen | USA | 1984 | 96 min | cert 15
 
Re-released in a brand-new restoration, approved by the Coen brothers and the film’s cinematographer, Barry Sonnenfeld. 
 
Joel and Ethan Coen’s thrilling debut feature - a stylish, imaginative and hard-boiled neo noir – marked their arrival as important and distinctive new cinematic voices. Beautifully shot and performed and with a haunting score by the Coens’ longtime collaborator Carter Burwell, it’s a landmark film, a trailblazing, near virtuosic debut which reinvented the noir for a new generation and marked the arrival of two filmmakers who would go on to revolutionise the American indie cinema scene.
 
We've had some confusion over the certification for this film - the distributor lists this film as a "15", however others are listing the film as an "18", with two conflicting entries on the BBFC itself. While we are accepting a 15+ audience, our film programmer would like audiences to be aware that this "director's cut" may include re-added scenes for 18+.
