Summary / Annotation


A Classic! submitted by pamhockey25 on August 29, 2014, 1:38pm This movie definitely has some horrible crimes in it, but it’s so enjoyable with the wonderful dialog and the great police-work. If you haven’t seen this classic, you definitely should!

great movie submitted by Jackie77 on August 16, 2015, 9:33pm Good crime movie. It seems to take multiple true crimes committed and wrap them all into one with a bow on top. Accents are a little strange. Great cast.

Liked but felt I shouldn't have! submitted by gardenfaerie on June 15, 2019, 4:17pm This movie is hard to describe and I don't want to give anything away.

I will say William Macy is excellent in this role and I love how the characters, who come across as "well shucks!" plodding are actually savvy and competent!

Fargo submitted by lstorc on July 6, 2019, 7:42pm Fargo gets more entertaining with each watch. Give it time to grow on you and you will not be disappointed.

Coen Brothers are great at characters who shrug at stupidity but can’t think any better. submitted by ccrose on August 26, 2019, 5:47pm What I remember:
Opening music by Carter Burwell, very heavy, straining to move to higher notes, over the top of a snow covered two lane hill, the car slowly revealing the full body. The name of the piece of music. “The Lost Duck” and it fits William Macy, ready to pay two petty criminals to kidnap his wife. “Oh no don’t want you to kill her.” Steve Buscemi and Peter Stormare already size up Macy; “that’s crazy. You want we kidnap your wife but not kill her.”
Macy looks guilty , looks like a cowering dog..
The story rolls forward and , of course, many people are killed, stupidly.. one of my top five movies!
