Not hitting Birmingham cinemas until January 2018.  But I'm looking forward to it.

Re: Three Billboards

Saw it on the big screen yesterday. It falls somewhere between gritty realism and cartoonish farce. Peddles some rather tired redneck/racial stereotypes but at times is darkly humorous and hard-hitting--literally so, though I feel the film could have been as effective without so much physical violence and foul language.

Definitely worth seeing--especially the performances of Frances McDormand and Woody Harrelson--if imho not quite as good as some critics may have you believe.

Looks good this -same director as In Bruges (excellent) and Seven Psychopaths (passable)

Re: Three Billboards

I hated the ending.

"Being Irish, he had an abiding sense of tragedy, which sustained him through temporary periods of joy."

Re: Three Billboards

I saw it yesterday - very good.  Very very good.  I liked the ending.  I liked the two coming together and the looseness of it.


One bit irked me and that was how the Rockwell character was not arrested.  That felt a bit silly in what was realism throughout.


I was captivated throughout though and not once did I drift of to think of my tea.


I liked the language and I liked the juxtopostion of the violence and the black humour. 


Also the the fire bit was very KKK - symbolic.

Re: Three Billboards

The Woody Harrelson bit brought tears to my eyes.

I hope you went out smiling like a child, into the cool remnant of a dream.
