Candice Drouet breaks down the quintessential Coen brothers film. Fargo builds on a simple trick to mess with our expectations and drive its point home: that we get by partly by blocking out the horrible things that happen around us.
This season, go way back to 1979 to witness the dark and twisted goings-on in the world of a young Officer Lou Solverson. Patrick Wilson, Kirsten Dunst, Jean Smart, Jesse Plemons, Brad Garrett, Nick Offerman, and Ted Danson star.
It’s just a brief tease, but the second season of Fargo appears to yet again capture the spirit of the Coen Brothers’ warped universe. As one commenter put it: “Are we going to watch this? Oh yeah. You betcha.” Drops 9/2015 on FX.
