Coen Brothers-lite Oscar bait

Frances McDormand is outstanding as the extraordinarily stubborn Mildred Hayes who is grieving her daughter's brutal rape and unsolved murder. She stirs a ruckus by renting 3 billboards (roll credits) to goad the cops into reopening the case.
The first half of the movie begins well enough. The major players are all established and while many characters are unlikable, they make sense in the film's universe. Woody Harrelson is the popular police chief; Sam Rockwell is his boorish racist lieutenant; John Hawkes is the nasty ex-husband, and Lucas Hedges is the bullied son.
As the film progresses, it shifts from a naturalistic and brutally blunt style to something more cartoony and contrived by the standards set in the film's universe. Like it's trying to be a parody of what is expected fr...

Plain simple : go see this brilliant movie !

“Raped while Dying.
Still no arrests.
How come, chief Willoughby?”

And not because of some amazing special effects or action-packed film sequences. But because of the ingenious story and the unparalleled acting. And even though the story is fi...

Three Billboards - Review

LIFF31 2017 #6

"Chiquitita, tell me what's wrong?"

Out of all the films I've seen at LIFF, this is easily my favorite and a great way to end this years festival. "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" is dark, funny, heart-felt, and a breath of fresh air. Never slowing down or drag on. It's plays around with genres and has a lot to say, politically or truth.

This is the best I've seen from Frances McDormand, which isn't new because it's McDormand. She delivered a performance that will get her another nomination (or win) at the Oscars. You can feel her pain and hate, but also see a softer side to her character which makes you have sympathy for Mildred.

Sam Rockwell, on the other hand, gives one of his finest performance of the film. The character Dixon ...
