Is the subject of our 119th T100P ‘cast terrific stuff? Oh, you betcha. The Ellises love the filmography of Joel & Ethan Coen, so we not only talked about this bloody comedy, but about most of their films. As for Fargo, Frances McDormand plays one of the truest heroes in all of film and she’s got some despicably awesome villains to thwart. Buy yourself some Sparkplug Coffee, then make the long snowy drive to the mid-west!
