The Coen's first movie, Blood Simple, is quite possibly one of their best. A tale of revenge and murder gone wrong in a Texas town, it features great dialogue, great acting, suspense and dark humor. Compared with most of their other films, it's noticeably less wacky, but they more than make up for it on the DVD.

As if this movie wasn't wonderful enough on its own, the Coens have added a full-length commentary by Ken Loring, of the ''Forever Young Film Preservation Institute.'' Through this fictional film expert, the Coens poke fun at all of what I would presume are their grievances about film commentaries. He blathers on incessantly about everything (especially over dialogue), explains the ''technical aspects'' of the filming (like how the entire opening highway sequence was filmed in a room with the car upside-down), and urges the viewer to fast-forward through the ''boring parts.''

The other special features are pretty standard, but the sheer excellence of the movie, combined with the hysterically funny commentary make this DVD one to own.
