    I knew they were going to pick Fargo as the best film of 1996 when I originally saw this show in 1997.

    Gene said it was January when they reviewed Fargo. No, it came out in March, he made a mistake. In If we Picked the Winners for this year he corrected himself about that.

    In Roger’s article on his top ten list for 1996, he pointed out that the year is much better for independent film, especially when the big studios were whoring out big-budget blockbusters like Twister and Independence Day. Sure, he did enjoy The Rock, Eraser, Mission Impossible, Dragonheart, and Executive Decision. But I think those movies were his exceptions (crorrect me if I’m wrong).
