There’s a proper time to die, isn’t there?
And one should embrace it when it comes – like a soldier.

This was one of Steve’s biggest sources of guilt, the fact that out of his whole crew of Howling Commandos were these guys that he convinced to come into battle with him. It’s the one guy that didn’t make it back, and that was the one guy that was always there for him.

What I’m most impressed by, though, is how this episode gets you to identify so thoroughly with Lester—then immediately removes that identification once he kills his wife because she dared insult him. It’s a tough trick to play, and I’m not precisely sure how Hawley and Bernstein manage it (short of the fact that, y’know, killing your wife because she’s mean to you is the wrong choice in most circumstances). Here’s my best stab at it: When Lester impulsively conks Pearl on the head with the hammer, we immediately cut to a point-of-view shot of her face, frozen in horror, then watch as blood starts to trickle down it. Bernstein is suggesting, subtly, that we, who have been invited to identify with Lester because we’ve all felt picked on by the Sam Hesses of the world, or felt diminished by those we’ve loved, are the ones who’ve perpetrated this crime in some way—perhaps by wishing it would happen within this fictional context. Then, just as quickly, we’re outside of that point-of-view, watching Lester’s hammer swing through the air to connect with his wife over and over, and then we’re just watching him—not even his face—hunch over Pearl as he hits her again and again. We go from being Lester, to seeing the true horror of his actions from an angle that has him swinging toward the camera (and, by extension, us), to an angle that cuts out his face and dehumanizes him. The sequence asks us if we, ourselves, would be capable of something like this, answers “yes” in no uncertain terms, then removes us from Lester to see if we can recognize the gravity of what he’s done. It’s crafty stuff.

Jesus Christ, I watched the first episode of Fargo seven times so far. I… I don’t even know how to feel right now.

The Crocodile’s Dilemma | paradox |

A crocodile, who has stolen a child, promises the father that his child will be returned if, and only if, he can correctly predict whether or not the crocodile will, in fact, return the child. If the father correctly guesses that the child will be returned, the transaction will go without a hitch.

But a dilemma could arise for the crocodile if the father guesses that his child will not be returned.

If, in that case, the crocodile decides to keep the child, he violates his own terms; the father’s prediction is correct, the child should be returned. However, if the crocodile then decides to return the child, he is still in violation of his terms, the father’s prediction is falsified, and the child should not be returned.

There is no justifiable solution.
