Going Blood-Simple

This damned burg’s getting me. If I don’t get away soon I’ll be going blood-simple like the natives.

—Red Harvest

Update: This may not be the best GIF, but I just love M. Emmett Walsh’s yellow suit in Blood Simple. I want one! Plus this shot of him in the phone booth is my favorite shot of the whole film.

Right from the beginning, Blood Simple is very much a noir, right down to the betrayal at a seedy motel.

And one more, again this isn’t a perfect GIF but I like the idea of the cars reflecting on the frosted door window. Quality is rough, but yet another testament to how beautiful Blood Simple is as a film.

  1. I love this film. Haven’t seen it for a few years; time for a re-view.

      This may come out wrong after I write it, but I kept thinking of you during the buried alive scene this time around 🙂


  2. Awwwww. As you should.

    Infocult: we see all.
