Description

Although Joel and Ethan Coen's award-winning Fargo was available before on DVD, this special edition from MGM/UA is a vast improvement. Roger Deakins' simply astonishing cinematography is given first-rate treatment on this disc. The monochromatic look of the film, dominated by vast fields of white snow, brought the film many well-deserved accolades. Roger Deakins' commentary track goes into great detail about his artistic process, his working relationship with Joel and Ethan, and some fairly technical talk about how some of the shots in the film were achieved. Rounding out this entertaining disc are a short retrospective featurette consisting of the cast and crew sharing their memories of working on the film, a segment of The Charlie Rose Show with the brothers and lead actress Frances McDormand, an onscreen text trivia track that combines bizarre tangential trivia about events that transpire on the screen with more conventional production information, and a gallery of advertising materials. Ask a character in the film if this DVD is any good, and odds are they will respond, "Oh yeah, you betcha."
