I don’t think I want to watch this clip…


#3

It’s the scene from Fargo where they arrest Jerry Lundegaard, but with all reality’s complications.


#4

So much for breakfast.

I wanted to look at how long the video was, clicked it in the hope of a progress bar that would tell me this, no progress bar. But thats alright because the first two seconds were enough for me :see_no_evil:


#6

Straight out of a Dostoevsky novel.


#7

Yeah… No thanks. Skiparooni.


#8

FYI for all: the video is about 1 min 30 sec long. It is only footage of the man and LEO speaking and him stepping outside and being arrested. That’s basically it.

To @beschizza 's point…here is the scene in Fargo for a comparison for those who have not seen it or have forgotten.


#9

Thorton died from 39 stab wounds.

That’s put me off my morning oatmeal and java.


#10

On reflection it’s also the “I’m cooperating here” scene I’m thinking of.


#11

“I’m not going to restrain you.” “OK, I’m placing you under arrest.”


#12

“I’m supposed to be going down…supposed to be going down to get some 'baccy.”

What an inconvenience. :unamused:

Also, is that a blood spatter on his right temple?


#13

Yeah nah. Not watching it either.


#14

Yeah, that seems like it should have provided him an iron-clad defense of “no take-backs.”


#15

Damn me for being up to watch anything.

Those eyes.


#16

I’m imagining Kevin Macleod’s “Unseen Horrors” playing in the background as the police arrest the man.

As others have stated, that thousand-yard stare in the video still is all I need to see.
