John Getz, Frances McDormand, Dan Hedaya, M Emmet Walsh.
A modern film noir in which greed and lust trap the characters in an escalating, nightmarish terror. This was the first collaboration from the brothers Coen, made on a limited budget, with strong central performances and a plot which twists upon itself to delicious effect.
