Re: “Blood Simple” screening
From: The Bijou Film Center

On Thur., Nov. 3, Sat., Nov. 5 and Sun., Nov. 6, in its screening room at 304 E. Broad St., the Bijou Film Center will present “Blood Simple” – the neo-noir picture that put the fabulously successful Coen brothers on the map. 

Admission: $7. No advance tickets.
Thursday show time: 7:20 p.m. only
No screening on Friday. 
Saturday show times: 5:10 p.m, 7:20 p.m., 9:30 p.m.

Note: Bijou Film Center members admitted FREE to Sunday's screening.

Blood Simple(1985): 99 minutes. Color. Directed by Joel Coen, Ethan Coen. Cast: John Getz, Frances McDormand, Dan Hedaya, M. Emmet Walsh. Note: Hard to believe this stylish thriller about the bad things that can flow from faithlessness -- in Texas -- is over 30 years old. It still packs a punch. 

Roger Ebert: “The genius of 'Blood Simple' is that everything that happens seems necessary. The movie's a blood-soaked nightmare in which greed and lust trap the characters in escalating horror. The plot twists in upon itself. Characters are found in situations of diabolical complexity. And yet it doesn't feel like the film is just piling it on. Step by inexorable step, logically, one damned thing leads to another.”

Beer, wine and soft drinks will be for sale for all of these screenings.
