Default 'Fargo' - High-Def Digest Review

David has reviewed 'Fargo.' He says this is on their most memorable films. This Blu-ray offers nicely upgraded video and audio and all the previously released extras. Recommended.

I've only ever caught bits and pieces of this movie on TV. I'm glad the PQ/AQ is good on this. I look forward to either renting or buying this.

as much as a i love the coens i dont think the movie is the masterpiece that everyone else thinks it is, but i need a 2nd viewing because it was one of the first of the now many coen bros films ive watched and come to love. i like frances mcdormand as an actress but i didnt like her character in the movie and thought it pulled it back from being more of a realistic film, even though it's a comedy drama.

Probably my third favorite, behind Barton Fink and NCFOM.

David, you draw the connection to No Country for Old Men. I'd argue that Fargo is much closer in tone and style to the Coens' first film, Blood Simple.
