Shows to watch during the holiday
Fargo Is a true crime story about a small town turf war between the Gerhardt family and the Kansas city mafia, there’s a lot of characters to focus on but none of them are necessarily a protagonist except you count the Sheriff, a stubborn, fearless former army officer who served during the war in Vietnam.
The fact that a real life occurrence was used to address issues relevant and important to humanity made Fargo 2 not only a movie with fascinating dialogues but also a journey back in time for the viewer, Fargo 2 explores race, feminism, power and bureaucracy without making irredeemable changes to the true story that inspired it.
The savagery of human conscience was laid bare and the brutality is not for the faint hearted, O’Hanzee Dent an Indian serving as a muscle for the Gerhadt family was a character that fascinates me each time I think of his actions, I’ll leave this still picture below to serve as a warning, when you eventually find time to watch it, you might have answers but let’s be clear on one thing, humanity corrupts us all one way or the other and O’hanzee was one hell of a story for humanity.

Well Peggy Blumquist, the blond beautiful hairdresser partner of Ed will have you rethinking the philosophy of your relationship.
War changes your perception and regard for human life, if you have killed more than once, especially on orders of a superior, Apparently you will still have to battle with your conscience and whatever the outcome, living your life with the memory of taking another person’s life haunts you, it affects your philosophy, the people around you and definitely your perception of reality, there’s a scene where Lou Solverson’s father inlaw amuses himself with the following thought during a dialogue: “Different now though, after WWII, we went 6 years without a murder here, 6 years, and these days well… sometimes I wonder if you boys didn’t bring the war home with ya”
