FARGO

Image 1996 Joel and Ethan Cohen

“A lot can happen in the middle of nowhere.”

synopsis:

While a struggling car salesman hires two hapless criminals to kidnap his wife,  a pregnant police chief  investigates a series of homicides in frozen Minnesota.

cam_03This crime thriller manages to strike a beautiful balance between a dark and serious tone, and the Coen brothers uniquely funny and quirky perspective.                      It’s deadpan poise suggests an tragicomedy by Samuel Beckett, but for all its banality and sporadic violence,  Fargo still manages a large dose of sweetness.                         Written, Produced, directed and edited by Joel and Ethan Coen, flawlessly acted by William H. Macy, Steve Busemi and Frances McDormand, beautiful cinematography by Roger Deakins and with a haunting soundtrack by Carter Burwell – this work of genius is an American masterpiece!
