Fargo

I’m a little late posting, but better late than never, right?

I live in south Louisiana. I’ve seen snow…maybe four times in my entire life. And I’m not talking about pretty snow, but wet, slushy stuff that melts within a matter of hours. A winter wonderland, we’re not.

So when I start thinking about snow, the movie that pops into mind for me is Fargo. Between the dark humor, the endearing accents, and the interesting plot line, I was hooked. I will watch it every single time it comes on and I always wait for the part at the end. You know which one I’m talking about, when Peter Stormare’s character is shoving the body in the wood-chipper.

And Frances McDormand (Marge Gunderson) is hugely pregnant the entire movie. I mean huge and she’s still tough as nails. I love it!

One day I’m gonna go to Fargo, just to say I’ve been there.

  1. Go in the late Spring or Fall, Danica…my mother had an old friend who lived there and the temps swing from -40F to 120F. Part of my husband’s family lived in Minot, which is not far from there,a nd if the record low temperature for any given day is not in International Falls, Minnesota,(the inspiration fof Rocky and Bullwinkle’s ‘Frostbite Falls’), than it is in Minot!

    • Did you know that the movie was actually based on a true story?You can’t see ‘Fargo’ in pieces, Jeff,there is no way you’d knowwhat was going on!
      Lynn,I saw an interview with Diane Ladd once.She said that she is from there and had gone to speech classes to become an actress. She said, (and DID), the line from the first scene at the kidnapped woman’s home:”Dad, can ya stay for supper?” She said that that was her aunts and mother speaking. When I had to call up ND,MN or WI on business, I would have the accent all day long!

      LOL, awesome! And trust me, I know how Hollywood likes to destroy regional accents. *mutters about people who are supposed to be Cajun and sound like they’re from Georgia*

    Always wanted to see that whole movie. I’ve seen short bits of it, on 2 or 3 diff. occasions … so they don’t make much sense.
    Maybe someday …

    Fargo was the second movie to come to mind when I thought of snow flicks, but I only saw it once and that was 3 kids and (mumble, mumble) years ago. I have to be in the right mood for those dark comedies. And be able to ditch the kids. No wood-chipper necessary.
