    Fantastic movie, if you like In Bruges you will like it. Great acting and comedy moments, yet it's such a sad movie.

    i had some major issues with the film that ultimatly meant i really just didnt like it
    but i cant deny the directing and acting in the film were absolutly stunning
    if someone asked for a recomendation for a good film i wouldnt say this one, but if someone asked for an example of great directing and acting there isnt a doupt in my mind i would point them straight to billboards

    Cops, clergy and dads, all made to look like the absolute dregs of society, while the women yet again save the day. Just another day in Hollywood’s never ending quest to drag Western civilization into the gutter.
    Other than that, a really fine, original film.

      networkdeath1 i mean i completely disagree that woody harrelson’s character was a “dreg.” and even the worst one of them who was a dreg ultimately got put on the road to redemption. and woody’s character, who was a cop, played a significant role in sparking that change in him.

      I agree. When it ended I felt perhaps the film didn't live up to what I expected of it, but yet a week later and I can't stop thinking about the characters. That scene with Harrelson and McDormand and the blood splattered on her face made me cry so much because it was so poignant, and how they both reacted immediately with such innate compassion and concern for the other person it that moment. It showed their humanity and kindness. I don't know how anyone could have been failed to have been moved by that scene.

    Sam Rockwell isn't underrated. He's great and everybody knows it. I have never seen a person voice negative opinions on him. Like never. In fact I think he's the only actor who I haven't seen get any critisicm. He's got amazing reviews and he just won a fucking Golden Globe.

    • greenknitter
      greenknitter Year ago

      I thought Woody Harrelson's character was quite likeable, but characters don't have to be likeable though to make a film interesting or well made. I don't see that as a necessary criteria anyway. One of the things I liked about the film was showing how some seemingly bad people are capable of changing and redemption given the chance.
      I too would have liked more in depth character development but that would have then been at the expense of the story line, or 'drama' if you will, if the film wasn't to have been 3 hours long. Or else you leave out some of the elements of the film you mentioned then you change the whole plot and it wouldn't have been true to how life is in that part of the US, nor would it have been the story the director wanted to tell anyway.
      I loved it in any case. The acting ensemble was terrific especially McDormand who gave a deserved Oscar winning performance and McDonagh created a visually beautiful film with a story that avoided many of the cliches of that type of story.

    sams one of my favourite actors but his character in this was really annoying and the sudden shift in his personality was frustratingly unbelievable

    • Sergeant Pickles
      Sergeant Pickles Year ago +5

      Kit Findlay totally disagree, I thought the great thing about the character was he was always likeable, you could always sense the goodness the Willoughby saw in him even when he was doing reprehensible things. Part of the reason the window scene was so distressing for me personally was I was willing for Dixon to do the right thing and it was so disappointing to see him do wrong.

    Why does "strong" always mean masculine? He knows nothing about women, that's why this woman is no different from his other characters. She is a wonderful actress, maybe she should have helped him write her character:-) I don't care if people disagree with my comment and I am sure they will be showered with Oscars. I just felt like writing down my opinion.

      He's the writer and ultimately it's his voice. And what ever someone else wants isn't what he wants. If you want to change it then write your own scripts. ;) But I feel ya.

      Sumitra Sarma You're entitled to your opinion... But I didn't think she was masculine. What in your opinion made her appear masculine? Her language? Her attitude? Her choices?
      Some women are gruff. Are they any less of a woman for not being demure?

      "Strong means so many things, restraint is often much more powerful and difficult than beating someone up."
      These don't at all sound like the words of someone who has actually seen the film.

    Sam Rockwell is weird. I feel like EVERYONE thinks he's underrated, and surely the end result of which is to say that he's actually really highly rated? But he's so fucking good. He's great in this and he stole the show in Seven Psychopaths too. Still think him not being nominated for Moon is one of the biggest misjudgments I can remember.

      Yes indeed. The trailer pulled me in & I was not disappointed. The community vs police narrative (people vs gov't) is playing well currently. After we wake up, we will realize we r in the same sinking boat. Hopefully before options become even more unpleasant. We saw "the Shape of Water", a slow starting but astounding flick. Who'd thought a story about a deaf mute & a sea monster could be so involving, goose bump ending. See it with someone u luv.

      I was pleasantly surprised by where this movie went. It isn't at all about a vigilante, flawless mother doing what the bumbling Southern cops can't do. It's about a bunch of believable people trying to deal with this horrific situation. Give the movie a shot, it's incredible.
