Fargo by Joel CoenAs expected, I loved reading this script because I absolutely love the film of which it is the script. At this point, I have seen Fargo something around at least fifteen times and I simply never tire of it. It’s definitely among my top 3-5 favourite films (which is saying something considering how many films I watch and how many favourites I have), and at this point much of the dialogue and many of the visuals have been memorized by me. Reading this script is so much fun and a great lesson for anyone interesting in writing screenplays or really just writing in general. The dialogue here is so perfectly constructed throughout, every character is fleshed out in both obvious and subtle ways, many of which are revealed exclusively in how they speak. The clashing personalities and mannerisms of the many memorable characters populating the film explode into bloody violence, black humour, and unique drama. There are two or three scenes here that were not included in the final film, and those were fascinating, if brief. They were not essential and, for pacing reasons, it may be wise that the Coens did not include them, but it’s still fun to see a little bit more of the characters if only so briefly. Also, there’s a rather interesting foreword by Ethan Coen that, among whatever else, is certainly...”Coenesque.”

Fargo is a British-American neo-noir black comedy thriller film written, produced, and directed by Joel and Ethan Coen. Frances McDormand stars as Marge Gunderson, a pregnant Minnesota police chief investigating roadside homicides that ensue after a desperate car salesman William H. Macy hires two criminals Steve Buscemi and Peter Stormare to kidnap his wife in order to extort a hefty ransom from his wealthy father-in-law Harve Presnell. The film was an international co-production between the United States and United Kingdom. A critical and commercial success, Fargo received seven Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture. The film was selected in for preservation in the National Film Registry of the United States by the Library of Congress as "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant"—one of only six films so designated in its first year of eligibility.

Sign in. Jerry Lundegaard's inept crime falls apart due to his and his henchmen's bungling and the persistent police work of the quite pregnant Marge Gunderson. Jerry works in his father-in-law's car dealership and has gotten himself in financial problems. He tries various schemes to come up with money needed for a reason that is never really explained. It has to be assumed that his huge embezzlement of money from the dealership is about to be discovered by father-in-law. When all else falls through, plans he set in motion earlier for two men to kidnap his wife for ransom to be paid by her wealthy father who doesn't seem to have the time of day for son-in-law.
