I caught this movie on IFC last night. OK, so I missed the first half hour, but man, this movie is KILLER! All you Cohen brothers lovers out there, don't miss this oldie but a goodie (1984!). Features our beloved ms. McDormand, of course and it just blew me away. The cinematography is spectacular. That, you'll just have to see to believe. It's basic storyline is about a man in Texas, a bar owner, who hires a man to kill his wife and her lover. And of course, all has to go wrong. But as I was watching it, having read that brief synopsis, I was still just floored by how the Cohens can twist the 'all goes wrong' part. There's a nightmare scene towards the end that totally creeped me out. I swear I've had dreams like this before. And may I just warn my dear sister, Em that I had, in my mind, named that character Pukey McPukington. And I quietly applauded his death...or was it? Ha, anyway. This movie IS CLEARLY ONE NOT TO MISS. I can't believe it eluded me for so long. Stars beyond stars. On thars.
