“A trailblazing masterpiece in any form.”—Mike D’Angelo, AV Club

In this newly-released 4K restoration, we can see the debut feature film that launched the careers to America’s most-revered movie making siblings. This biting neo film noir is imbued with dark humor—a key element of the Coens’ work.

In the bone-dry heart of Texas a bitter bar owner hires a private detective to follow his wife whom he suspects of carrying on a tawdry affair. This distrust launches a series of deceits, double-crosses, and murderous mayhem. 1984, U.S., 4K DCP, 96 minutes. Rated R.

“Suspense screwed way beyond the sticking point, superb camerawork from Charles Lang, and Crawford in nerve-janglingly extravagant form.”—Geoff Andrew, TimeOut

Recently restored, this thrilling tale is a showpiece for the brilliant Joan Crawford. She stars as a playwright married to a less-than stellar actor (Jack Palance). It was her money that he’s after and he plans to murder her with the help of his girlfriend on the side (Gloria Grahame).

The film received Oscar nominations for cinematographer Charles Lang, Jr; actress Joan Crawford and supporting actor Jack Palance. 1952, U.S., 2K DCP restoration, BW, 111 minutes. Not rated, suggested for 13+.
