This screenplay is brilliant, a beautifully constructed narrative woven around a group of memorable and convincing characters, filled with just the right mixture of comedy and drama, of farce and drama. And yet, the film's defining genius lies in its banality, its stupid conversations, its dumb characters and settings, the triviality, mediocrity, flatness, and low IQ of the world it so flawlessly and effortlessly brings to life. Hands down a masterpiece of modern cinema (and pretty damn funny, too).
wrauuum. paralysyng. Jerry Lundegaard is my favourite character, because he is so predictible, and that means he is a real human! one of us. small, stupid and with a wide smile filled with giant teeth.
The movie is great. And I mean, I could understand if the A and the I on the keyboard were close together, misspelling Canada would be halfway acceptable, but they're like, eight or nine keys away from eachother. That definitely wasn't a typo. The dude is straight up retarded.
