Steve Buscemi looking a bit chipper here.

Any movie fan worth his salt will have a copy of Fargo in their collection.It’s a cult classic.When the Coen brothers get it right they get it right.We see that they’ve used two actors from The Big Lebowski but they’re playing such different characters that you don’t relate the two.Fargo’s got some great dark humour and the who setting with the accents is quality too.I’ll give you a short synopsis of the plot.A car salesman owes a lot of money,we never find out what for,so he decides to stage a fake kidnapping and get the ransom money off his father in law.The kidnappers are a bit volatile and kill a few people while moving the victim,all the while a pregnant small town cop is on their trail.Well worth the watch and tons packed into the 94 minutes.

IMDB RATING      –     8.2
MY RATING     –    8.4
SEEN BEFORE     –     YES
RECOMMEND?     –     YES
OVERALL     –  BUSCEMI IS GOOD FOR THE HUMOUR AND STORMARE’S DEAD PAN LOOKS ARE BANG ON.
