The Bit Players are back in the heart of Texas noir with the Coen Brothers 1985 debut film Blood Simple with this week's podcast. The guys talk about how the film stacks up against the iconic directors' later works and the flourishes of brilliance on display here, the ways in which they expertly use black humor to call upon the lunacy of the situation, and the film's incredible use of tension when it needs it. They break down the bar's unbelievable finances, Dan Hedaya's gorgeous mane of body hair, and what Netflix browsing categories would be perfect.
