The simplest of noir plots, really, that takes up about half of the text. What surprises me every time I read the screenplay is how much of the text is devoted to essentially inane dialog. Of course, those are the humorous scenes in the movie, but when you read it through, and think about writing those lines, it's hard to fathom writing so much repetition and inanity and thinking oh yeah this is great this is gonna be funny. Well, the acting in the movie was phenomenal, totally sold those lines. ...more

The Coen brothers are known for their realistic dialog matching their outlandish characters so well that it's difficult to believe they are fiction. This screenplay starts with a 'spoiler' stating that this actually happened, the names have been changed to protect those involved. However, this is merely a device to grab the audience and force them into a realistic world. Jerry Lundegaard is the first main character the reader knows of. He is a sly and scheming individual that is trying to fake h ...more

By way of review, I'll quote from "The House Next Door" blogger Matt Zoller Seitz's assessment of Frances McDormand's performance from the film:

"As pregnant policewoman Marge Gunderson, McDormand is a turtle with a badge and a Holden Caulfield hat, waddling around snowy vistas, calmly demanding that everyone she encounters -- from scumbag criminals to lovelorn ex-classmates -- be as honest, dignified and professional as she is. ('I'm not sure I agree with you a hundred percent on your police wor

I want to learn more about reading screenplays as literature, so I thought I would start with one of the greatest films of the last 20 years, the Coen brothers' masterpiece, Fargo. Having seen the film several times, it was easy for me to visualize the action as it unfolded, but what I really found fascinating about reading this particular piece was the beautifully concise language Coen used for direction. Furthermore, there is a lot more to this particular film than meets the eye, and when I re ...more

Amazing. It's pretty incredible to see how much of this movie is in seemingly senseless and unimportant dialogue. It's even more incredible to see how that same dialogue sets this standard murder mystery apart.

Wonderful. A great reminder that screenplay rules, (no -ings) are more guidelines.

I love the Coen Brothers work. They are great filmmakers and fantastic writers. They give each word consideration and often write the dialogue for each character as an individual. Note the scene near the beginning in which Jerry meets the two kidnappers. Each character is fully realized and has a completly different speech pattern. Fantastic. I often said that the best part of their movies is that they are so often so much fun just to listen to.

This study in quirky personalities caught up in murder is one of the best twisted story plots to come along in recent years. Surviving the harsh Dakota winters is rough, but throw in drama, deceit and duplicitous behavior and we may have to wonder, Who will get out alive?

Weirdly formatted (just for this book?), unlike a usual screenplay.
