"Great Coen Bros edge of the seat production."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Makes sense of the TV series, same grim humorous take on what happens when misguided mis-fits collide. Recommend … If you're not squeamish!

"Fargo the movie not as good as the TV series"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Loved the TV series, watched season one then purchased the Movie, which I didn't like as much. Black Comedy and Billy Bob Thornton are a perfect match. Would highly recommend.

Description

An ordinary place, an extraordinary thriller.

Dark yet funny, this highly original thriller from the Coen Brothers follows the plight of Jerry Lundegaard (William H. Macy), a hapless car salesman so deep in debt, he hires two thugs (Steve Buscemi, Peter Stormare) to kidnap his wife. But he doesn't bargain for Police Chief Marge Gunderson (Frances McDormand), heavily pregnant and determined to solve the crime. You betcha, yaah.

Review

"Leave it to the wildly inventive Coen brothers (Joel directs, Ethan produces, they both write) to concoct a fiendishly clever kidnap caper that's simultaneously a comedy of errors, a Midwestern satire, a taut suspense thriller, and a violent tale of criminal misfortune. It all begins when a hapless car salesman (played to perfection by William H. Macy) ineptly orchestrates the kidnapping of his own wife. The plan goes horribly awry in the hands of bumbling bad guys Steve Buscemi and Peter Stormare (one of them being described by a local girl as "kinda funny lookin'" and "not circumcised"), and the pregnant sheriff of Brainerd, Minnesota, (played exquisitely by Frances McDormand in an Oscar-winning role) is suddenly faced with a case of multiple murders. Her investigation is laced with offbeat observations about life in the rural hinterland of Minnesota and North Dakota, and Fargo embraces its local yokels with affectionate humor. At times shocking and hilarious, Fargo is utterly unique and distinctly American, bearing the unmistakable stamp of its inspired creators." --Jeff Shannon
