Product Description

Mcdormand/Macy/Buscemi/Stormare ~ Fargo


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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The crime in the Coen Brother's film FARGO has to have been the worst executed crime in the history of cinema. It's flawed from the very beginning. It's a good thing that the movie isn't the same way; it's possibly one of the best-executed films of the last 25 years.
I've always been a [fan] for strong character dramas. Plot is inconsequential to me for the most part. I always look at it as that added bonus if a plot really grabs me. I just realize that most stories operate on the same seven or eight premises. So it is the characters that save them. FARGO is full of great characters.
The film opens in Fargo, North Dakota, at a shady trucker bar. Jerry Lundegaard (William H. Macey, Panic) is there to meet Carl (Steve Buscemi, Con Air) --a low rent, funny looking crook. Carl is there with another man named Gaear Grimsrud (Peter Stormare, The Big Lebowski), a tall, silent and scary looking crook. Jerry drops off a car and sets a crime into motion. The two crooks are to kidnap Jerry's wife (Kristen Rudrud, Pleasantville) and hold her for ransom. Jerry is trying to embezzle money from his well-to-do father in law Wade (Harve Presnell, Face/Off), who is a real [fool].
Needless to say, what should be a simple crime goes terribly wrong. When three people show up dead in a small town called Brainerd, the local sheriff, Marge Gunderson (Francis McDormand, The Man Who Wasn't There) get on the case.
What Joel and Ethan Coen have crafted here is a drama of such life and scope. It's not simply about a crime. It's about people living their lives at a moment in time. There are scenes in this film that are unnecessary to the plot that are completely necessary for these characters.
Take for instance, the intimate scene in a hotel resturant in Fargo.

I expected Fargo to be a light hearted comedy that was set in the midwest. The movie not only was funny but it was thrilling and violent as well. The movie was good, very good actually. Frances McDormand did a wonderful job playing Marge the pregnant police officer. All the other performances are great including Steve Buschemi's as the ransomer of William H. Macy's wife. The plot is very gripping and the low score and cinematography was good too. I highly reccomend this film.

When the Coen brothers introduced their first film to the public and we saw their honesty and
quirkyness, coupled with their unique way of telling a story, we were hooked. Their way is not
for everyone, but for those of us who share their outlook on the way some people deal with the
circunstances in which they find themselves, their films are fascinating, Illuminating, and
entertaining as hell. Macy is perfect. McDormand is delightful, Buscemi and Storemare hilarious
and frightening. When l saw the interviews that accompanied the video, l was knocked out to hear
Storemare played HAMLET- Wow! what a range! In my opinion this is right up there with Raising

By EA Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Feb. 24 2014
Format: DVD
Hollywood prefers to ignore the Midwest. When it is featured at all, its people are often depicted as either drooling yokels or simple yet wise folk who exist just to teach life lessons.

One of the few exceptions is "Fargo," the Coen Brothers' breakout movie. It's half kidnapping caper, half valentine to their home stage of Minnesota -- and despite the heaps of snow and the occasional dead body, it has a warm charm embodied in Frances McDormand's pregnant sheriff. This movie could have had no plot at all, and it would still have been fun.

Car salesman Jerry Lundegaard (William H. Macy) is facing financial ruin, so he comes up with a cunning idea: he'll hire a pair of loser thugs, Carl (Buscemi) and Gaear (Peter Stormare), to kidnap his wife so he can extract a ransom from her wealthy father. But things go awry during the kidnapping when Gaear shoots a traffic cop and the passengers of a car.

Unsurprisingly, the police are interested in what happens. Local police sheriff Marge Gunderson (McDormand) begins investing the murders and the kidnapping, interviewing prostitutes and chitchatting with an old classmate. But Jerry's seemingly-simple plot keeps spinning more and more out of control -- and as Marge gets closer to the murderers/kidnappers, the deaths just keep piling up.

"Fargo" is the perfect example of a quirky movie done right, mainly because... it doesn't feel like the Coens were trying to be quirky. Instead, it feels like they are pouring all their affection for their home state in one movie -- mostly the "Minnesota nice" (even the cops are pleasant and chipper!), the laid-back attitude and the eccentric sense of humor ("Ah, hon, ya got Arby's all over me!").

The Film 5/5

The first time I watched Fargo, I didn't know what to expect. After multiple viewings, it's still hard to pin down exactly what the film is. There's a bizarre plot focusing on Jerry Lundegaard (Macy) who works for his father-in-law's car dealership. Without ever learning why, we are told that Jerry needs money. His plan is to hire two men he has never met to kidnap his wife. He'll pay them $40,000, but he'll tell his father-in-law, Wade, that the ransom is $1,000,000. It's a simple enough plan.

Jerry's true nature is revealed early in the film when he openly lies to a customer. The two men he has hired are Carl Showalter (Buscemi) and Gaear Grimsrud (Peter Stormare). Buscemi plays the same type of character that he played in Reservoir Dogs, talking continually, whining and cracking jokes. Stormare barely speaks, but springs into action when he feels the situation demands it.
