Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Recommended Posts

Most recent film by In Bruges director Martin McDonagh. Features Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, and a few other well-known faces. Here's the trailer:

 

Saw it last night and loved it. Mrs Mathematics prefers In Bruges, but she's clearly mental.

Went and saw it this afternoon. Great film, really morally grey in who or what you're rooting for. The actors getting the award nominations are fully deserved, be nice to see Woody Harrelson getting some credit too. Very much Frances Mcdormands film tho.

Seriously? I thought 7P was terrible.

I guess context has a lot to do with my views here. When I saw Seven Psychopaths I was heavily into that genre (very Coen Bros/True Detective (1st series). While I still enjoy these types of films, hence the reason I went to see it, the style is becoming a bit jaded. 

Being a huge McDormand fan, I was disappointed to find her a bit annoying in this film, agreeing to play to cheap laughs like kicking the kids for instance.

I also thought McDonagh cynically played to the Academy by painting all the Black characters as good guys.

I still enjoyed it though because alongside McDormand, Harrelson and Rockwell are amongst my very favourite actors.

I rarely go to the cinema. Is it worth making a trip to see this? I've heard it's a really good film as opposed to a lot of the rubbish that comes out these days.

Yes it is.

If you can overlook what I said above and the redemptive ending for one of the film's unsavoury characters.
