The January hibernation continues and with the recent snowy weather, what better film to watch than Fargo? It's been years since I saw this. In fact, I think I saw it once at the cinema in 1996 when it was released.
It's still brilliant. Frances McDormand has never been better and her character in this is so sweet and smart. Every actor in this is amazing, Steve Buscemi, William H Macy and the poor woman who plays his wife. OK, I just looked her up and her name is Kristen Rudrud and guess what? She was born in Fargo!
It has some amazing dialogue. My favourite scene is the one where Marge is interviewing the two girls about our kidnappers and they say one of them was kind of funny looking. It cracks me up every time.
The way they all say yah, Marge and her adorable husband making her eggs, the crazy Japanese guy. It's all wonderfully quirky and not in an annoying way that some Coen brothers movies can be. For my money, this is the best Coen brothers film. I know there is a lot of love for The Big Lebowski and I do like that but this is such a heart-warming film despite the feeding of Buscemi into the woodchipper! If that's a spoiler, I apologise but really, surely I can give out a spoiler on a film that is 17 years old?
