FARGO is yet another offbeat, highly entertaining film from the Coen brothers (BARTON FINK, BLOOD SIMPLE). The film is nearly colourless; instead, director of photography Roger Deakins washes the screen in the blinding white of the snow, occasionally breaking for the drab grays and browns of police uniforms and winter jackets. Carter Burwell's score further enhances the slow, steady pace of this oddly funny and compelling film. The Coens have once again populated their film with a slew of bizarre characters, with outstanding performances delivered by all, particularly the edgy William H. Macy, the quietly luminous McDormand, the nearly psychotic Steve Buscemi, and the oh-so-cold Peter Stormare.
This Oscar-winning film written, produced and directed by the Coen brothers centres on Jerry Lundegaard; a car showroom manager who arranges for his wife to be kidnapped in order to extort a hefty ransom from his wealthy father-in-law. Procuring the services of a couple of undesirables, it's not long before his master plan is derailed by calamity and a heavily pregnant police officer is hot on the heels of those responsible.
