The balance of such radical elements in Joel & Ethan Coen's brilliant black comedy FARGO is so steadily on point, that one can watch it again and again and constantly be enthralled by the complexity of the characters and the meticulous way each scene is so beautifully executed. The labyrinth storyline pivots on a very desperate William H. Macy who unwisely has his wife kidnapped by two imbecile hit men ( Steve Buscemi & Peter Stormare ) that unwittingly begin a flood of problems for everyone concerned including a shrewd Frances McDormand in her Oscar-winning performance as Police Chief Marge Gunderson who knows when something just ain't right! A seamlessly stylish and extremely funny film of events that spiral out of control in the midst of a seemingly placid landscape of the Midwest. A must-see for anyone who is serious about films as well as anyone looking for top-notch entertainment with a artistic flair!

This is that kind of movie that does not come around very often. It is full of laughs, good action, great dialogue, characters the viewer can actually care about, just all of the aspects a great film should have.

A suspenseful and insightful darkly comic crime-noir, not unlike their debut 'Blood Simple', though quite a bit better. 'Fargo' is yet another triumph for Joel and Ethan, as well as my all-time favorite film. It's charming, unpredictable, shocking, and undeniably brilliant.
