Fargo

Coen Brothers

Too black for a comedy, but too batty for a thriller, this film stars Frances McDormand as a visibly pregnant police chief and William H. Macy as a clueless salesmen in damage control mode. Filmed in the stark wintry landscape of mid-western United States, this film benefits hugely from atmospheric camerawork, note-perfect supporting cast, and a charming mid-western accent. Steve Buscemi as a killer for hire, adds to the show. Arguably the Coen Brothers finest achievement, each character is etched sharply and the plot is still one of Hollywood's finest.
