The Coen Brothers' best '90s movie: 'The Big Lebowski' or 'Fargo'?

It's the 20th anniversary of "The Big Lebowski," and the Coen Brothers' classic gave us so much in the '90s: the Dude, Jesus Quintana, Walter and Donnie,  preferred nomenclature, and rugs that really tie the room together. But the Coen Brothers' "Fargo" brought us Frances McDormand as Marge Gunderson, a pregnant police investigating roadside homicides.  She won Best Actress in 1998. Both movies are outstanding achievements, but which is truly the Coen Brothers' best effort of the '90s?

Below is the synopsis of "The Big Lebowski," per IMDB

"The Dude" Lebowski, mistaken for a millionaire Lebowski, seeks restitution for his ruined rug and enlists his bowling buddies to help get it.

How did we exist and communicate before the quotations bequeathed to us by the Dude and his posse of bowling miscreants?

#TeamFargo

Below is the synopsis of "Fargo," per IMDB.

Jerry Lundegaard's inept crime falls apart due to his and his henchmen's bungling and the persistent police work of the quite pregnant Marge Gunderson.

"Fargo" is a masterpiece of crime cinema, but for many, MacDormand's portrayal of Marge the pregnant cop makes this film the Coen Brothers' best offering ever. 

#TeamBigLebowski

"The Big Lebowski" gave us arguably the greatest stoner hero of all time.

#TeamFargo

When McDormand won Best Actress for her performance in "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouriat the 90th Academy Awards, "Fargo" stans were still coming forward to honor her role in that film.
