As usual, we end with two choices from the Criterion Collection, beginning with the Coen brothers’ (and Frances McDormand’s) feature debut, a contemporary film noir about a private eye hired to kill a cheating wife, only to complicate the matter by double-crossing his employer. The new release comes with a new conversation between the Coens and cinematographer Barry Sonnenfeld about the look of the film, new interviews with composer Carter Burwell, McDormand, and star M. Emmet Walsh, and more.
