Collegiate Deviance

I can hear Christian Bale’s cackle in my head.

Now, I saw something that year I ain’t ever seen, before or since. I’d call it animal. Except animals only kill for food. This was— Sioux Falls. Ever been?

This is what season 2 is going to be based off of, firmly placing it within the same universe as the first season and the film. I love the interconnectivity that Noah Hawley is cleverly weaving in. I hope it maintains the similarities in style, tone, and themes.

The Sioux Falls incident(s) are also mentioned in episode 3, in a conversation between Gus Grimly and his police lieutenant in Deluth. After hearing about Gus letting Malvo go on the speeding charge (while driving Lester’s car), the lieutanant says “It’s goddamn Sioux Falls all over again…”. Gus asks “What’s Sioux Falls?”, to which he replies “Shut up.” Perhaps just one more connection which may surface in season 2 of Fargo?

OK, so we got a trooper pulls someone over, we got a shooting, these folks drive by, there’s a high-speed pursuit, ends here and then this execution-type deal.

Just rewatched this wonderful cinematic masterpiece this afternoon while stoned out of my mind. I think I’m just going to keep working my way through Roger Deakins’ filmography in a binge this week (I’ve also watched No Country For Old Men, Skyfall, and Barton Fink recently).
