The 38th film in my favourites series is a darkly comedic thriller that mixes screwball hijinx with hyper realistic (to the point of absurdity) results. This Is #fargo
directed by #joelcoen #ethancoen #coenbrothers
and starring #francesmcdormand #williamhmacy #stevebuscemi #peterstomare #harvepresnell #kristinrudrud
Out of context I remember this film being absolutely one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. The confusion and the dialogue mixed together send me over the edge with laughter. Then you have the catchy accents that you will try to adopt as soon as possible #youbetcha
You decide to revisit the film and are suddenly reminded that things get dark very quickly here. Of course they would when an idiot husband and father decides to set up a fake kidnapping so he can retain the ransom money. How could that NOT go wrong?
only shows up a half hour into the film and immediately it is hers. Such an idiosyncratic character that seems unique enough to stand out, but is acted well enough to still seem real. I actually never feel in danger despite the guts and gore because Marge is a wonderful guide through the horrors of being a police officer in a small town.
I try to make it an annual ritual to watch this film on the first major snowfall of a winter. Other people prefer #homealone
or some sort of Christmas film but this is my snow film.
