Fargo

“And I guess that was your accomplice … in the wood chipper.”

There are so many brilliant scenes in this Oscar winner, but the final drive, as pregnant police chief Marge Gunderson brings in the second hitman, crystalizes everything which is perfect about this film.

Marge, as played by Frances McDormand, is pure goodness — one of the very few people in this rogue’s gallery who is not comprised, devious, or downright evil.

As she grapples with the death and destruction which has upended her patch of paradise, and all over “a little bit of money,” it’s pretty near heartbreaking.
