About This MovieToggle

“…and I guess that was your accomplice in the wood chipper.”

The Coen Brothers’ first real break-out picture!  A brief 9 years after Raising Arizona hit small theaters, Fargo is released to critical acclaim and Oscar-winning renown.  Yet another kidnapping-based plot (are see seeing a pattern?), Fargo retells a true account of extortion and ransom gone very wrong.
