Fargo : SE <--- good stuff!

I got around to watching the entire Fargo : SE disc and I am very impressed. This is such a great movie made by the Coen brothers, and the cast is phenomenal. I saw this movie a few years back and was excited to hear it was out on SE DVD.

The cinematography is amazing. The vast snowy background has many angles during the movie which is very profound and aweinspirating. It's a gritty, real look of the northern Midwest.

The transfer is really good. Great detail and contrast with almost no scratches or dirt. Looks beautiful in 16x9 video. Sound is equally as good. The DD 5.1 is solid and offers clear dialogue and music.

Extras are fun! I especially loved "Minnesota Nice" which is a retrospective documentary on the film, the Coen brothers, and the cast and people who made the film.

I highly recommend this DVD! I got it for only $14.99 at Circuit City. Only gripe is the commentary track. I wish they had one with the Coen brothers.

I read another review that said the SE used the same transfer as the older one. Can you please confirm?

I believe it is a new transfer. The last one WAS anamorphic, but wasn't very clean. This new one is supposedly much better than any previous release.
