"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

Fargo

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.

Critic Reviews:

  • " The movie stands as a pseudo thesis of the things the Coen Brothers have been interested in all along. " – Adam Nayman
  • " Two words. Marge Gunderson. " – Kate Muir
  • " A riveting drama of death, dismemberment, small town criminality, and exaggerated accents. " – Mike Massie
