“Fargo” is the gift that keeps on giving, pop-culture-wise. Not only did it inspire three seasons of the same-named TV series, with a fourth on the way, but it spawned this melancholy gem. Based on a true story (maybe? see above), it’s the work of another pair of brothers, David and Nathan Zellner, about a Japanese woman who, believing “Fargo” was factual, went on an ill-fated search for Steve Buscemi’s buried money.
