"A gripping, drum-tight noir masterpiece to compare with Touch of Evil,
itself free from caring, but it works as straight drama too."
-Peter Bradshaw, Guardian

"With their 1984 directorial debut, the Coen brothers showed the surefootedness with which they would ease themselves into one genre after another, reworking each to fit their deadpan vision."
-Philip Kemp, Total Film
