Our take

Unpredictable in its plot, this noir detective tale, a, cult hit from the Coen brothers, hasn’t aged a day. With an award-winning performance from Frances McDormand, Fargo is an offbeat masterclass in dark humor. Suspense, comedy and social observation have rarely coexisted so naturally on screen.
