AUDACIOUS DEBUTS
Double Feature!
BADLANDS / BLOOD SIMPLE
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.
