I know people rave about this movie… but I just don’t get it. I mean, my first thought was that maybe I’m not “intellectual” enough for it. But really, there’s just nothing here.
The performances were fine. I mean, the script was 90% “yah” and “aw jeeze” and “dont’cha know” so it’s pretty hard to mess that up, I guess.
Fargo’s plot is also nothing to get excited about, either. I understand it’s meant to be about a bunch of idiots bumbling around, but it’s not entertaining to watch.
I can’t tell if Fargo is supposed to be comedic or serious, and thus ends up landing somewhere in the boring median.
