Mortician Bernie (Black) is universally liked in Carthage, Texas, although his friendship with hated wealthy widow Marjorie (MacLaine) raises eyebrows. When Marjorie disappears and her whereabouts belatedly become the subject of an investigation, no-one — apart from a suspicious D. A. (McConaughey) — wants to think badly of Bernie.
Linklater’s Fargo, it’s funny peculiar and funny ha ha, with Black a delight and Linklater in impressive control of superbly judged content and tone.
