Joel's 100 movies in 2015: Fargo
As the buzz for the TV series based on this Coen brothers classic built to a fever pitch, I finally talked Kelly into watching it with me. Her response, what kind of movie is it?
That's a loaded question isn't it?!?
It's a comedy where everyone (not really) dies. It's a domestic drama without any domesticity. It's a crime story about terrible criminals.
It's one of my favorite movies and it holds up under repeated viewings, imitators and homages, cable channel edits and even the passage of time.
