Blood Simple (Director's Cut)

MA15+ Crime


A rich but jealous man hires a private investigator to kill his cheating wife and her new man. But, when blood is involved, nothing is simple.

BLOOD SIMPLE – DIRECTOR’S CUT is shorter than the original Theatrical Cut, coming in 2.5 minutes shorter. Although the changes wouldn’t be considered major, the Coen Brothers noticeably reduced the run time with tighter editing, shortening some shots and removing others altogether, as well as extending and adding a few shots that were not shown in movie theatres. These changes resulted in a tighter narrative flow for what many consider the perfect modern noir by the masters.

Running Time 1hr 38m
