is an excellent suggestion and one of my favourite films. Kubrick's pacing and plot narration are quick and DP Lucien Ballard makes great work of lighting Sterling Hayden's face. Fantastic heist film with Elisha Jr, Marie Windsor and scene stealer Tim Carey.
I just stumbled across Blood Simple
on HDNM channel and can't believe it wasn't mentioned here yet. Really fantastic neo from the Coen brothers. It's airing again Sunday nite in case you have that channel and want to check it out.
