I've been sick for a few days and haven't been able to leave the house. I've noticed that the local cable TV stations have been replaying one of my favorite movies of the 90s FARGO.

This the movie by the Coen Brothers about kidnapping and murders in Brainerd, Minnesota. Steve Buscemi and Peter Stormare play the mismatched kidnappers/killers. The guys can't stand each other and make a memorable pair of villains.

Then there's the entire deal with the "Minnesota Nice....." Apparently people who live there act really strange. They smile all the time and are so polite. Well at least according to this movie!!! The concept is played up to the extreme until it seems like a comedy. I've never been there so I don't know if it's true or not. Or if they talk so funny all the time.

Anyone else a fan of this movie??

Fargo is in my top 5 favorites of all time.

Steve Buscemi is one great actor in my opinion, but that whole cast nails it.

Pretty close to my thoughts, too. An all-time classic. Didn't Frances McDormand win an Oscar for her performance . . . Ya?

No Jeanie, no money!

Hudsucker Proxy and Miller's Crossing, and my "Coen Brothers" DVD collection will be complete.

Ya! I love Fargo. I love the deadpan humor by Buscemi like when he goes off because his accomplice won't talk to him when they are driving.

There is a haunting piece of music being played in Blood Simple as the victim is being walked out into a field to be killed. Always wondered what it was called.

Love the Coen brothers. And this is one of their best. Fantastic acting and dialogue from the entire cast. Have it on DVD and must have watched it at least half a dozen times (not counting the times i saw it on TV).
