Fargo‘s second season premiered about a year and a half after its first season did, and Fargo‘s third season won’t arrive until 2017. And assuming we ever get a Fargo season four, the wait might get even longer. Series creator Noah Hawley says he may take a page out of the Louie playbook and just ignore the calendar, delaying new seasons of Fargo until he gets a really good idea for another one. Read More »

Game of Thrones whatever, Fargo is the best show on television. The FX limited series has completed two seasons now, each with fantastic casts. The 1970’s throwback that was the second season was great, elevating both the filmmaking and storytelling. But in my opinion nothing can beat that award-caliber cast of the first season, which included Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman, Allison Tolman and Colin Hanks. Don’t get me wrong, Kirsten Dunst, Patrick Wilson, Jesse Plemons, Jean Smart and Ted Danson did a fantastic job, but for me it didn’t quite top Thornton, Freeman and Tolman.
So the question is: how will Fargo season 3 attempt to one-up this great FX series? Well today they have announced that BAFTA-winning actor Ewan McGregor (Trainspotting) will be joining the show for season three, and if that isn’t though, he will be playing the two characters at the center of this new story Find out more details about the Ewan McGregor Fargo casting, after the jump.

The filmography of Joel and Ethan Coen is untouchable. Of their 17 films, at least a dozen of them are arguably great films and more than a few of them are genuine masterpieces. Ranking them is a fool’s errand. I know this because I have tried. Within a year, I wanted to erase the whole thing. Their work sticks with you, attaches itself to your mind and grows with you. Minor films become masterpieces over time. Little moments reveal their layers, their profundity, upon repeat viewings. The Coen brothers filmography feels alive – it’s always growing, always changing. Even their newest film Hail, Caesar (out today) threw me for a loop. I literally have no idea how I’ll feel about it tomorrow or six months from now.
So I’ve assembled a list of ten perfect scenes from the Coen canon. They are unranked, presented in chronological order, because I do not want to impose rigid form on something that I know will shift and change within a year or two. But right now, these scenes sum up why they’re special and their work should be celebrated. Few modern artists have showcased such range and fewer have dabbled in so many different genres and forms while maintaining their voice at every moment. These scenes represent a sublime partnership and the best modern cinema has to offer.
Spoilers follow, of course.

Mad Max: Fury Road basically dominated our top 10 lists for 2015, and we at /Film were hardly alone in loving it. The National Board of Review deemed it the best film of the year, and filmmakers as different as Quentin Tarantino and John Waters named it one of their favorites, too. It’s even earned nominations from the SAG, the PGA, the BAFTAs, and the Golden Globes — a rare feat for a blockbuster action sequel. Even so, all the critical adoration in the world can’t guarantee Mad Max: Fury Road a shot in the Best Picture Oscar race. At this point, it’s still far from a shoo-in for the category, and (let’s be real) stands almost no chance of taking home the prize itself.
All this praise can, however, win Mad Max: Fury Road the Golden Tomato Award for the best reviewed movie of 2015. As you’ve probably deduced from the name, these award are given out by the review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes. Besides Mad Max, Inside Out and Room have also emerged as some of the most highly praised films of the year, while Master of None and Better Call Saul were two of the best loved titles on the TV side. After the jump, find out what the other best reviewed movies of 2015 are, and see George Miller and Pete Docter‘s (adorable) official responses to their big win. Read More »
On Monday night Fargo closed out its excellent second season. Creator and writer Noah Hawley proved season one of the show was no fluke. Fargo, in many ways, improved. This time around the crime story was funnier, sadder, and, surprisingly, more sincere and kindhearted. FX has already ordered Fargo season three, which will, despite only taking place a few years after the 2006-set first season, not feature any of the characters from season one.
Read Hawley’s comments on season three after the jump.
