" Brothers Joel and Ethan Coen hit the big time with their sixth film, Fargo. A cleverly plotted thriller set effectively in snowy Minnesota. ‘the abstract landscape of our childhood—a bleak,windswept tundra, resembling Siberia except fot its Ford dealerships, and Hardee’s restaurants. Superbly photographed against a snowy background, the film moves seamlessly between black humor, violent crime drama, and genial comedy, while weaving a good yarn. The semi-stylized dialogue, so important to the Coens’ films, is given another dimension by the ‘yah-yah’ rhythm of the local Minnesotan dialect." - Ronald Bergan, The Film Book, 2011.
