Rotates its story through satire, comedy, suspense and violence, until it emerges as one of the best films I've ever seen.

The fans of their best work -- Blood Simple, Raising Arizona, Barton Fink -- now can add Fargo to the list, pushing the Coens to the first rank of contemporary American filmmakers. [8 March 1996, Friday, p.B]

A crime gem that is darkly funny even when it's chilling -- and certain to become a classic.
