A classic. Still my favorite Coen Brothers flick. It's just so masterfully crafted. So human, so funny, so dark. Love it.

Fargo is a story of bunch of stubborn people attempting to perpetrate a crime for money, only to find out its implication is bigger than they can handle. Which seems to be a pretty accurate portrayal of your average Joe and petty criminals. In real life they are not street smarts with tricks and calculated actions. Nor the police solving their case a dedicated crime investigators like police drama depicted to us.

The film is brutal and quirky with occasional dark humor. Fargo has this catchy accent lasting a cultural impact. It can be tense sometimes, with Macy (Jerry Lundergaard) and McDormand (Marge Gunderson) brief but tenous encounter. However it is also laden with slow-paced cinematography and cumbersome - sometimes unnecessary - dialogue. The film apparently forgets to employ Chekhov's gun; barely relevant subplots keep creeping through the story. It could've lasted for just 60 minutes instead of 90 minutes. So it can take patience to watch sometimes, but in the end, still worth it.

This is one of the best Coen films. Right behind The Big Lebowski for me. I rewatched this before I rewatch the series getting ready for season 3 and it just reminded me of how great this truly is. The characters are great and I don't know anybody from Minnesota but I really hope they do talk like that. "You're darn tootin" I love how this is a "true story" its in the beginning of every episode too.

Worth a watch if you like the series, if only to see all the nods the series makes to its forebear. Decent film, but the series is a must watch.

A really well written and entertaining story. It had really good pacing and was fun to watch throughout. Well worth a watch... at least for Buscemi :P

Watch William H. Macy go into a bar, sit down, the table in front of him with many bottles of beer ... and do not drink ....it's just a strange feeling #FrankGallagher
