Fargo – Framing Relationships

The unapologetic starkness of the Cohen Brothers’ film, Fargo, isn’t merely a motif, it’s a way of being. In a film that was originally planned to contain only static shots, everything we need to know about the relationships between characters is told through the framing and staging of each scene.
