Fargo

fargoNear the end of the movie, Steve Buscemi has escsaped the botched parking garage drop-off with the ransom, but he's been shot in the face. On the way back to the cabin (where he left Peter Stormare to watch the kidnapped wife) he stops on the highway, climbs over a snowbank to a mile-long fence, and buries the ransom money in the snow. The he looks up and down the fenceline and realizes that he may not be able to find this spot again, so he sticks his (foot-long) trowel in the snowbank. At this point, I loudly laughed at the screen, thinking: "Is this his master plan? Does he really think this is going to work?" (Maine Mall Cinema)
