As great a film as the Coens have made. And that's saying something.

It's a miracle: A tough, honest, bloody film set so far from the bright lights it feels as if it's on a different planet, yet knowable and absolutely compelling from start to finish. Fargo is great American movie-making.

The Coen brothers, director Ethan and producer-cowriter Joel, have finally latched onto a story strong enough to carry their eccentric mix of black humor and self-conscious style.

The performances by McDormand (bringing a GREAT screen character to life) and Macy are superb.

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

Dark, gritty, and brilliant. Not for kids.

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

Quite simply, Fargo is the best movie the Coen Brothers have ever made. And that's saying a lot.

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

The Coen Brothers have always loved to go far, a tactic they don't forgo in Fargo. [Blu-ray]

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

The best movie heroine in years.

This may be the warmest movie the Coen brothers have ever made.

Fargo is a strikingly mature, uniqueentertainment that plays on many levels ... all satisfying.

[Marge is] a good cop because everything abnormal stands out like a stain against her white-on-white sanity.... [H]er incomprehension [of criminality] is not only her strength as a detective, it justifies the deadpan style of the movie.
June 26, 2006
Much less vain, flamboyant, and showy than their other pictures, Fargo bears the thematic influence of Samuel Beckett and the stylish coolness of Finland's Aki Kaurismaki, but the violence is all Coens.
January 30, 2006
One of the more entertaining films of the 1990s.
January 26, 2006
The Coens remain effortlessly ahead of the American field.
April 9, 2005
This is a near brilliant/near masterpiece (if not an outright masterpiece).
January 15, 2005
It's good storytelling ... hilarious, disturbing, tragic, and hopeful. But it's not for the squeamish.
