Neither Remake Nor Sequel

NPR guest host and TV critic David Bianculli explains FX’s new network premiere of  the drama series called Fargo, yes it has the same title as the 1996 Coen Brothers movie -  it’s very definitely a wonderful show in that same wacky spirit – but it’s just as important to note what this new Fargo is not. It’s not a remake — and it’s not a sequel - READ HEREAccording to show’s creator Noah Hawley, FX asked him to make his own original adaptation of the Academy Award®-winning feature film. The premise of series evolves around a drifter named Lorne Malvo (Billy Bob Thornton), who arrives in Bemidji, Minnesota and influences the population with his malice and violence, including put-upon insurance salesman Lester Nygaard (Martin Freeman). Set in late 2000’s. The actual Coen brothers were not involved: They read the script, liked it enough to add their names as Ex. producers, but did nothing else. The original concept was born out of MGM’s (Former Polygram) desire to get more of its movie properties onto television, and the goal was to franchise Fargo without remaking it.

"This is, of course, the most crucial time of a film" 
A brilliant quote in the above basic image made macro. This from one of the most influential directors of the 20th century: Stanley Kubrick (1928-1999), the genius behind films such as Lolita, 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, The Shining and my personal Top 5 favorite of all time: Full Metal Jacket. Even though his first and last sentence contradict each other a bit, Kubrick means to say in the last sentence: "stick to a plan" and that ”planning only takes you so far, it’s preparing to be in the moment that is so crucial.” And that’s why we love Kubrick! Kubrick’s films are both technically and artistically stunning, while content-wise, he often sought to be controversial.
