Fargo, like other Coen Brothers’ films, is a dark comedy. However, Fargo seems to be somewhat darker than their other films, as it centers on a staged abduction and a string of murders. There are still comical elements though, such as the heavy accents of the characters, the ignorance of the man who pays to have his wife abducted, and the dysfunctional relationship between the two mis-matched kidnappers. The stylist nature of Coen Brothers’ films in evident in the interesting shots, often capturing mundane, daily elements in bizarre scenarios, or taking advantage of the tundra-esque landscape.
