Fantastic

This is an amazing movie. I spent a lot of time in NW Minnesota growing up. They nailed it! I really liked listening to the interviews and commentary.

ReviewSource Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide
Review The Coen Brothers put a unique spin on a murder case, layering their story with droll observations about Minnesotans and winding up with a totally disarming comedy! McDormand is terrific as an efficient (and pregnant) police chief with multiple murders on her hands; Macy is equally good as a two-bit schemer who tries to stay cool when he finds himself way over his head in a quicksand of crime. Love that Muzak in the background!

Review Most of the great movies are filmed in black and white. Artistically speaking, there are few reasons to film in colour except perhaps that colours are in some way vital to the story. Joel and Ethan Coen's Fargo is filmed in colour, but in an odd way, it is a black and white film. The contrast of black and white is central to one's appreciation of this great film. The blackness of the characters contrasts with the cold, clean, pristine whiteness of the film's landscape, which is the tabula rasa upon which this brilliant story is told... In many of the Coens' previous movies, the lead characters are so fatally flawed by ego, stupidity, fear, or naivete, that we have no desire to cheer for them, so there is often an emotional distance between the Coen brothers' art and their audience...Finally, they have given us characters we can care for, a story that keeps us wondering, hoping and guessing, as well as the distinctive visual style that marks all Coen productions... this film has a VERY dark sense of humour that might not be to everyone's taste. Still, I loved this film. It is encouraging to see that some film makers are willing to risk failure to make a great movie.
