Two Brilliant Debut Films! Terrence Malick's BADLANDS is a violent folktale starring Martin Sheen and Sissy Spacek as amoral young killers. In Joel and Ethan Coen's BLOOD SIMPLE, a Texas bar owner hires a corrupt detective (M. Emmet Walsh) to kill his unfaithful wife (Frances McDormand) and her lover.

BADLANDS
1974, Warner Bros., 95 min, USA, Dir: Terrence Malick
The first feature from visionary maverick Terrence Malick, based on the Charles Starkweather-Carol Fugate murder spree of the late 1950s, stars Martin Sheen and Sissy Spacek as innocent, amoral young killers flashing across the desolate American landscape like brushfire. A violent folktale for the modern age, brilliantly written and directed by Malick, and photographed by Brian Probyn, Tak Fujimoto and Stevan Larner.

BLOOD SIMPLE
1984, Janus Films, 99 min, USA, Dir: Joel Coen, Ethan Coen
Hangdog Texas bar owner Marty (Dan Hedaya) hires a corrupt and corpulent detective (M. Emmet Walsh) to kill Abby, his unfaithful wife (Frances McDormand), and her lover (John Getz). What follows from this simple, familiar crime premise is one of the most assured moviemaking debuts of the 1980s. Full of intuitively stylish bite, poisonous one-liners and goosebump-inducing setpieces, this neo-noir put Joel and Ethan Coen on the map of filmmakers to watch.

Screening format: DCP
