Fargo by Joel and Ethan Coen

The Coen Brother's Fargo is one of the most exciting crime films ever made. The film cannot be called a drama or a comedy but it lands somewhere in the realm of the two. I have a feeling that with the exception of The Good, The Bad and The Ugly (his favorite film) that if Quentin Tarantino could have made a film it would have been Fargo. The dialouge is quick and quirky and the characters are lovable even if you hate them. This may not be the Coen's best work anymore (it was recentally surpassed by the brillant No Country for Old Men) but it is, in a way, more accesable and it is more closely related to their other works.
