I liked it, good film, weird though how everyone had that funny accent and they were always smiling and being super duper nice even though dark things were happening all around. I think they maybe pushed that angle too hard because it was pretty relentless and lost its charm by the end imo. Great film though, the only downside for me is that the ending was very anti climactic. I love a happy ending and this was more or less that, but it was just delivered in such an unsatisfying way. Buscemi met a grizzly end but you didn't get to experience any of it, it was all implied. The tall bad guy never spoke and was hauled off in a cop car but as usual doesn't say anything, which again is unsatisfying. I still have no idea what he was thinking when the cop lady told him he killed a bunch of people for money, and there is more to life than money. I would love to know what he thought about that, whether he felt bad, whether he didn't care, whether he was a psycho that just wanted to kill her and escape, etc. He was so much of a blank slate, I find that pretty unsatisfying. And then the cop hero lady, who I loved, very little happens for her in the end either. She solves the whole case single handedly, and shoots the bad guy in the end and arrests him, but there was not much tension or excitement to that end scene where she finds the grizzly wood chipper. And then some other cops arrest Mr Gunderson and you find nothing about what happened to him, and again you don't get to see him suffer awaiting arrest which I really wanted to see and you don't get to hear what happened afterwards. And then nice cop lady goes back to bed with Norm and talks about his stamp collection. I get that the Cohen guys like to make quirky films but to me it is just unsatisfying. Up to the ending though, I loved it.
Also I felt the exact same way about No Country for Old Men. I loved that film until the ending which I hated.
