Saluted as a darkly comic twist on the thriller genre, Fargo celebrates its 25th anniversary with a special reissue.

Things go terribly awry when small-time Minnesota car salesman, Jerry Lundegaard (William H. Macy), hires two inept thugs to kidnap his wife in order to clear an insurmountable debt. Once people start dying, the very chipper and very pregnant Police Chief Marge Gunderson (three time Academy Award winner Frances McDormand) takes the case. Is she up to the challenge? You betcha.

"To watch it is to experience steadily mounting delight, as you realise the filmmakers have taken enormous risks, gotten away with them and made a movie that is completely original." - Roger Ebert
