Pat FrancisBlu-Ray Review, MoviesLeave a Comment

Blu-Ray FargoJoel and Ethan Coen have been making unique and often classic films for over three decades. In 1996 they released one of their best films ever with “Fargo.”

With a modest budget of just 7 million dollars the film went on to gross almost ten times that amount. “Fargo” also racked up seven Academy Award nominations eventually winning two Oscars for  Best Actress and Best Original Screenplay.

Along with the critical and box office success the film gave us career making performances by previously mentioned Oscar winner Frances McDormand as well as William H. Macy and Steve Buscemi.

Twenty years later “Fargo” is still a winner and to celebrate its platinum anniversary Shout! Factory has just released the film in a collectable Blu-Ray steel book. The 20th Anniversary Limited Edition contains remastered audio and picture plus the following bonus features:

  • Audio Commentary With Director Of Photography Roger A. Deakins
  • “Minnesota Nice” Featurette

This collectors Steelbook is a must for any collector and this release proves the 20 years later “Fargo” is still a masterpiece of modern cinema.
