Blood Simple - Director's cut
Filmfest 2007

Actually, the new version is exactly the same length as the original because the filmmakers have added an introduction in which a distributor identified as Mortimer Young credits BLOOD SIMPLE with "ushering in the era of independent cinema" and claims that now that the movie has been "digitally enhanced and tastefully restored" (with the 'boring parts' excised and the unmistakable voice of Holly Hunter revealed on a telephone answering machine), it will be "forever young".
