Fargo ★★★★½

Rewatch with family, in prep for finally getting around to the TV series. It's been a few years since I last saw Fargo, and I'd actually forgotten a surprising number of story beats - I was struck, once again, by how inextricably linked character and plot development are here. Very few films draw so heavily on characters' decisions and motivations to drive the story forward. It works an absolute treat. And it's so funny, and pretty, and well-directed, to boot. A filmmaking marvel.
