Paul and Corey Cross the Streams: Season 3, Episode 13 [Film Noir – ‘Blood Simple’ (1984)]

Paul and Corey Cross the Streams is a bi-monthly podcast in which hosts Paul Pakler and Corey Pepper watch and review streaming content – so you don’t have to!

This month, Paul and Corey are talking about film noir. Its preoccupations and tropes. Its themes and style. And to do a little switcheroo, Corey is starting us off with a “neo-noir.” Blood Simple (1984). PACCTS’ second Coen brothers film and their first, Blood Simple may have been made on a shoe-string budget, but it contains so many seeds of what audiences would see from them over the years. You’ll come for the hard-boiled drama, but you’ll stick around for Dan Hedaya!
