I finally saw Fargo! The parts that were funny were REALLY funny, mainly the moments with the hilarious Kristin Rudrüd as William H. Macy's kidnapped wife. She was actually born in Fargo, so it makes since that she had the accent and mannerisms down so perfectly, but also, just her face is hilarious. Like, the face she was born with. Like a pug. She was definitely my favorite part of the movie.
Aside from some brilliant comedic writing and amazingly funny cast, this movie was just a...Coen Brothers movie. I'm a little sick of the "small town loser gets caught up in something super scandalous and it is HILARIOUS and INTENSE" formula, but it definitely works for Fargo, making it better for me than The Big Lebowski and Burn After Reading (and I don't think I can compare it to No Country for Old Men). Also, violence is always a plus for me.
