I like the Coen brothers so I was pretty excited for this movie. Simply, Frances McDormand MAKES this movie. Sad part is, it takes about 40 minutes for her to get in. I can see why people think this is a disturbingly funny movie, but it wasn't that funny to me. Sure, the way that they talk is funny, but death doesn't ever come across as funny to me. The same thing happened in "Burn After Reading". Once someone died, it wasn't funny anymore. This happens a lot in Coen films. There is a lot of confusing story that the audience understands but when the characters try and figure it out, it's utter chaos. It works pretty well, but when they do it many times, it gets old. If I would have seen Fargo before Raising Arizona or Burn After Reading it would have been different. It was good, but not great. 6/10
