    Truly one of the worst, most unrealistic stories I’ve ever seen put to film. The characters are cartoons of PC stereotypes, the plot has numerous gaping holes, the story seems no more than a vehicle to express far-left ideological frustrations about life. I think less of every actor in it for taking the role. It really is that bad.

    I dont think Francis’ character was at the same place at the end as she was in the beginning. She goes through many experiences and at the end she softens a little

  • Daniel Catallo

    Yes it is. Sam Rockwell is playing the same type of character here that Billy Bob Thornton played in Monster's Ball. Only far better written and a lot less of a cartoon character.

    Extremely overrated, with implausible story plots. Dark and depressing? Yes, but not a comedy.

  • Chris Tucker
    Chris Tucker Year ago

    Wow you really really missed the overall point of three billboards. You are right 3 billboards is secretly brilliant but it is less of a coherent story and more of a character study. The point was that there was no one hero character we are all capable of both good and evil. An even though we may feel marginalized doesn't mean we are always right. The film maker invites you to look at each character as a sympathetic character.

    "Yayyyy we are women! We are strong too! We didn't invent technology, we didn't fight wars, we didn't reach the moon but we are still stronger and better than men! Woooo sistas are doin it for themselves, high five babe!"

  • heavyreduction
    heavyreduction Year ago

    Maybe I’m wrong but I think most people missed the point of this movie.
    The girls murder is not as important to anyone as protecting the different clicks each group belongs to in Society.
    The filmmaker says it straight out to the priest. Everyone in a gang speech and actions of the other parties
    The church protection of the sex scandals and how it effects them
    The police protect the cop who tortured the prisoner because how it affects them and how they are perceived.
    And the final group the military will not go against their own either. The supposed good cop that takes over isn’t any better that the first chief. He protected the murder because he was a veteran.
    Everyone feels bad for the mother but will do nothing because it goes against their own “gang”. Only the “bad” cop see the light after his arc is complete.
    He is right and knows it that why he goes with the mother at the end.
    Best movie I’ve come across in forever.
    Also bad things never go away. They only compound into worse. Only good things go away.

    I respect you Grace but I don't think you're looking at the movie from the right angle. I love that it's incomplete and I don't think it's political at all, yes race is a part of it, but it's not the story. I loved this movie.

  • Alex Lloyd
    Alex Lloyd Year ago

    Overall, I agree with your take on the movie--with one major caveat. You mentioned (~8:00 in) that Ebbing, at large, was apathetic towards the killing of Angela Hayes. I wholeheartedly disagree with this, and furthermore I believe that this movie is directly condemning that kind of monochromatic, absolutist mindset (reminiscent of Mildred's own). The town--like Willoughby--hurts very much for the Hayes family, but that sympathy is conditional and finite (as it should be). But--again--overall I agree with your take, and wish you the best. Cheers.

  • April the fourth be with you

    I just rented this and I totally agree with your first impressions.
    The film felt like a bumpy ride, every time it was going in one direction it would turn and then turn again and then it ended and I wasn't lost but I was like, oh.
    Some movies pull that off and leave you feeling delighted in the unexpected journey.

    Even if they have a good casting, the movie is clearly overrated (shallow story and dialogues and characters)

  • HRS Darwish
    HRS Darwish Year ago

    Frances's character does have an arc but it is subdued and not overstated and that is why it is so moving. The characters change but not dramatically which adds to their realism. You can see it in the way she puts down the wine bottle on her ex-husbands table, you feel it in the way she is driving her car in the end. It is an amazing feat to accomplish.

  • Ryuk
    Ryuk Year ago

    I don't get the hype either. It seemed to me everyone in the movie talked the same way. Every. Single. Character. It didn't make me feel much, like Call Me By Your Name, Lady Bird or Get Out did. Even Shape of Water, it was simple and predictible, but had a certain atmosphere. Three Billboards is made for Oscars though, the voters will love it.

  • simbasible

  • Beatness

    I have such mixed feelings about this movie. On one hand, I understand all the praise. It has great performances and really makes you think and consider the situation. However, I feel like it was just too messy as a whole to be receiving such high praise. Particularly with things like how the movie was trying for the "look how REAL and HUMAN all the characters are!" while reducing several characters to punchlines or gags. I mean maybe these contradictions are what make it such a postmodern masterpiece, but I don't think this movie manages to be anything beyond that, which is disappointing.

    Saw the movie tonight and I have to say you're so right about everything of this film, including some messages that the director intends to express but somehow lose control of it, therefore the characters and plots are going slightly messy for audiences to perceive (in a sensible way). Still a wonderful movie though. Thanks for your great review!

    i dont really think the message of the film is how hard it is for minorities to get taken into account, i think it tries to show how human souls really feel and portraits impulsiveness and our own imperfection. in my opinion this is what makes it a great film. dont really think it has any other purposes.

  • lestat1886

    I don’t agree with you on the script. It’s on unfocused and Frances’s character evolved from the beginning to the end. She didn’t change completely but she saw how angry she was!!

  • Francisco Javier Acevedo

    Grace got this one wrong. I normally like her reviews on blockbusters and superheroes but With a movies like 3 billboards that are more complex and rich and smart, I think she misses the full color and fails to appreciate that complexity.

  • Yomablader
    Yomablader Year ago

    I think it's a pretty bad argument to say her character doesn't have an ark and that's bad because "It's the basics of filmmaking 101", as if that alone makes it bad. I would have appreciated a more thorough elaboration.

    • Beatness

    What do you mean there's no character arc? Did you watch the same movie that I watched? She was having second thoughts about murdering her daughter's murderer. That would not even cross her mind at the beginning of the film. Love triumphed over hate at the end, which is the moral of the story.

    • Beatness
      Beatness Year ago

      I agree. Frances McDormand's performance was truly amazing, it showed so much characterization through very little things. Best part of the movie imo.

  • Andrew Harrell
    Andrew Harrell Year ago

    I used to wish Grace would review more art house fare like this, but after seeing her reviews for this movie and Phantom Thread, I think she she should stick to her strengths and only comment on bigger fare. She seems to have about as much an understanding of these kind of movies as she does the character of Deadpool. :)

  • Cormac Lyons

    How is she in the same place. Her anger is resolved at the end of the film as she realises she wouldn't kill her daughters rapist

  • The Enchanted Rose
    The Enchanted Rose Year ago +1

    Here's the thing: Even though I'm completely fine with the plot and Elastigirl's character choices, The Incredibles 2 should depict both strong male and female leads but by still being pivoted towards Mr. Incredible. In movies like Wonder Woman, Beauty And The Beast (more on this movie) and Zootopia, both the male and female leads are present but if you were to put just one character in the spotlight, they would most likely be the female ones. Yet, they were adored by both male and female moviegoers. Similarly, this can be said for the Harry Potter films, Aladdin, and even Beauty And The Beast (again, more on that) where again, the spotlight is more towards the male lead characters. All these movies have gender equality, feminism and central lead position irrespective of its gender depicted wonderfully. That said, there can be both male and female empowerment by supporting both genders as a whole. If Elastigirl wants to be the lead, male moviegoers shouldn't complain. If Mr Incredible wants to be the breadwinner, female moviegoers shouldn't complain. They should support each other. Something which was depicted brilliantly in Beauty And The Beast (that's why it's in both the lists).

    I just came from the theatre from watching this film. I was in the verge of tears at least 3 times. Thinking about it more makes me love it more and more.

    Hmmm, it's true that the town does try to punish Frances McDormand for trying to get that revenge, but the town does have a point that catching the killer is kind of impossible and she's not necessarily free of assault or arson. To be ffair, neither are the white characters in the film.

  • okonh0wp
    okonh0wp Year ago +1

    One thing I can say about Martin McDonagh is that he thinks he's the shit. In one interview, he was implying that he was better than Tarantino.
    There was an act, McDormand had to learn to have less hate. She got closer to Dixon. She never would have apologized to him about the fire.
    The darkness it depicts? It's an odd film: The two main characters both commit assaults and destruction (arson) that goes massively unpunished, but I think that's part of the genre of the spaghetti Western. Both the two main (surviving) characters gradually realize the light of their own making.

    What's your problem Grace? It's not the director's job to spoon feed you all the answers to the film. Use your noodle and work it out. I think the film gives an excellent representation of life today. Nothing has changed, not of significance anyway. As the saying goes: "You need to recognize." Wake up and take a look around you today and see what's actually going on.

    Flat character arcs are very common. Katniss from the Hunger Games didn't change, did she? She was always strong . Sherlock never changed, at least in the novels he never did. But this characters usually shape the world around them. I haven't seen this movie but it sounds as if nothing really changed. I'd be curious to see how they pulled this off if that's the case.

    I saw this and the dark satire was excellent, the part where she confronts the priest about historical sex abuse was great. It is however not "In Bruges" where everything is nailed. The film "the Guard" is also great but unassumingly is a comedy but excellent, "Calvery" is very similar in tone to three billboards but executes it more effectively. I just hope people who rate 3 billboards go back and see his earlier amazing films.

    If all priests are culpable for a few priests sexual misconduct, is all of Hollywood culpable of dark sexual assaults and abuses that's been going on since it's inception? Why does Rose McGowan get shut out of #TimesUp when she started it? This movie attempts it, but doesn't complete it's thought.

    A movies theme not being obvious enough is not a very good criticism. Some of the best films are the ones that take multiple viewings to fully appreciate.
