A desperate businessman hires two hoods to kidnap his wife, in order to grab the ransom money for himself. However, when small-town sherrif Marge Gunderson starts to investigate, his carefully laid plan goes horribly wrong.
The Coens are still a million miles from Hollywood staple, but with Fargo's comic felicity, gun-packing coolness and ability to come up with the totally unexpected, they maintain their place among America's most important filmmakers. Excellent.
