I know what you are thinking. One word: "Woodchipper." Sorry to disappoint, though a memorable scene, it does not even compare to the one we are going to discuss today from The Coen brothers' Fargo (1996). The snowy, cold scene when a very pregnant Marge Gunderson (Frances McDormand) arrives at the scene of three murders to be briefed by Lou (Bruce Bohne). This is a subtle scene, a wonderful scene. From Marge's movements due to pregnancy, their calm approach to the whole scene, the fogginess that also blankets the landscape, the sound of their steps in the snow, the frost and snow on the bodies, the mentioning of the killers' footprints in the snow ("little guy, big fella"), then the snowy drive where "I'm not sure I agree with you a hundred percent on your police work, there, Lou." Simply perfect. Subtle dark comedy, characters you instantly adore, and oh how I love those midwest accents. Plus, her mittens!! Watch it again and see if you can still argue that a woodchipper can compare. Then check out the previous installments in the series: John Carpenter's The Thing and Robert Altman's McCabe & Mrs. Miller.
