Fargo is a 1996 film by the Coen Brothers (Joel & Ethan Coen) about a car salesman named Jerry Lundegaard who has his wife kidnapped, getting his father-in-law to pay the ransom, and using that money to build a parking lot. The plan spirals out of control, involving several murders committed by various people. One of the most famous scenes involves one of the kidnappers feeding his accomplice through a woodchipper.
Fargo takes place mostly in the Minnesota city of Brainerd; the movie has become famous for its use of the quirky Minnesotan accent and the beautifully photographed snow landscapes. It is considered one of the best movies of the 90's and appears in film critic Roger Ebert's list of Great Movies.
Fargo is one of the best dark comedies ever made! Oddly enough, only one scene in the entire movie takes place in Fargo, Minnesota.
