Nominated* for seven Oscarsr and winner of two, this darkly amusing thriller combines a first-rate cast, "a dazzling mix of mirth and malice" Rolling Stone and a bizarre kidnapping plot that unravels the Midwest like never before. Starring Frances McDormand, William H. Macy and Steve Buscemi, Fargo is a brilliant tour de force from the creators of Raising Arizonaand O Brother, Where Art Thou? *1996: Best Picture, Director, Actress McDormand, won, Supporting Actor Macy, Original Screenplay won, Cinematography, Editing
Leave it to the wildly inventive Coen brothers Joel directs, Ethan produces, they both write to concoct a fiendishly clever kidnap caper that's simultaneously a comedy of errors, a Midwestern satire, a taut suspense thriller, and a violent tale of criminal misfortune. It all begins when a hapless car salesman played to perfection by William H. Macy ineptly orchestrates the kidnapping of his own wife. The plan goes horribly awry in the hands of bumbling bad guys Steve Buscemi and Peter Stormare one of them being described by a local girl as "kinda funny lookin'" and "not circumcised", and the pregnant sheriff of Brainerd, Minnesota, played exquisitely by Frances McDormand in an Oscar-winning role is suddenly faced with a case of multiple murders. Her investigation is laced with offbeat observations about life in the rural hinterland of Minnesota and North Dakota, and Fargo embraces its local yokels with affectionate humor. At times shocking and hilarious, Fargo is utterly unique and distinctly American, bearing the unmistakable stamp of its inspired creators. --Jeff Shannon
