Synopsis:

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, trailblazing and near virtuosic, which reinvented the noir for a new generation and introduced to the world two filmmakers who would go on to revolutionise the American indie cinema scene.
