I watched Fargo last night. Great movie. Not tons of laugh out loud moments but very wry funny the entire film. And the accents. Just wonderful.

Quirky, funny and violent film about a kidnapping gone wrong and greed. Every minute of this film is engaging. McDormand is captivating. Buscemi is hilariously great. A little gem of a film.

Fun plot, insanely quotable and has a great, dry sense of humour and all is elevated by Buscemi's fantastic performance!
