Whether these characters are lovable or detestable, they're lovable or detestable in a TV way -- defined by a minimal set of traits that are endlessly reiterated and incapable of expansion or alteration, a fixed loop.

All attitude and low aptitude. Its function is to italicize the Coens' giddy contempt toward people who talk and think Minnesotan.

If Fargo could make up its mind what kind of movie it wanted to be, it might find meaning in its tangle of surface caricatures and impeccable technical stylistics.

The danger in portraying characters you consider significantly less interesting than yourself is that too much superiority and not enough affection can lead to a fatal snottiness.

Do you have to be a Minnesotan to really get Fargo?

To watch it is to experience steadily mounting delight, as you realize the filmmakers have taken enormous risks, gotten away with them and made a movie that is completely original, and as familiar as an old shoe.

It's easy to admire what the Coens are trying to do in Fargo, but more difficult to actually like the film.

The most complete film the Coens have ever made, it's nothing short of a movie for the ages.

Even a lunch pulled from a buffet adds texture to the film.

"Fargo" is the kind of black comedy you can rediscover over and over again. The laughs and shocks never fade.

As is typical Coen Brothers entertainment. "Fargo" offers incredibly complex characterization along with very memorable dark comedy.

Funny without really trying to be, and it proves conclusively that fact is stranger than fiction.

Finally, [the Coens] have given us characters we can care for, a story that keeps us wondering, hoping and guessing, as well as the distinctive visual style that marks all Coen productions.

With the subtle, homespun and ironic performances of Macy and Frances McDormand ... the film becomes a darkly laughable tale of small town normality going awry.

...one of the most hilariously twisted murder mysteries to come along since, well, since never.
