Every time I see a wood chipper I think of Steve Buscemi because of this movie.

The one real downside to the film is after it came out people thought us Minnesota folk talked like that. Only a small few actually do.

I loved his movie. But I went so long without seeing it, which I truly regretted. Better late than never though.

"You're such a super-lady!" is probably the most-oft quoted bit of movie dialogue between me and my friends the last ten years. It's so very, very perfect for almost any occasion when said enthusiastically enough.

Fargo is a strange but very enjoyable movie. It's not one I go out of my way to see, but still enjoy if it's on.

I think there's an urban legend that some woman died of exposure because she was looking for the money from this movie.

It's funny what urban legends pop up from movies. On topic, the wood chipper scene always made me a shudder a bit. Still a good movie in my book.

It's a fantastic movie, but I missed out on the best part. Some years ago a special edition was released, that contained the most awesome of xmas gifts, a snow globe that had the foot sticking out of the wood chipper. Thinking I had time to pick it up when it went on sale I waited, and never saw it again.

It is just a media-created legend; the real story has nothing to do with the movie, and is actually kinda sad: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Takako_...(office_worker)

The Coens' films are always memorable for their weird and sublime little touches. Fargo actually credits Prince as a cast member, when it is obviously not him, but rather a Minnesota in-joke.

Yeah, why does everyone love fargo so much?It was okay, but The Big lebowskie was better, and I know I will get crap for it, but I think even the Hudsucker Proxy was better as far as Coen brothers films go, and that movie gets no love!

The question is, why should I not love it so much?
