Three Billboards (McDonagh, McDormand, Rockwell, Harrelson)

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

Aw c'mon, this movie might as well have been Three Billboards: A Sammy Rockwell Redemption Story

Saving McDormand's daughter's file above all else from the fire, contritely receiving the o.j. from the guy he pummeled and threw out the window, junior detective on the case (cue Harrelson voice over "I always knew deep down you could to be a detective if only you learned to look in your heart instead of bludgeoning innocents" or whatever he said), taking gratuitous manly beatings in the name of DNA, getting props from Lester Freeman, becoming best friends with McDormand...

And then with the addition of the drifter-rapist. I don't like when movies re-contextualize the good in a flawed character by way of some ancillary person who shows up as evil incarnate. It's cheap.

Yeah, on their murder road trip maybe they hadn't found all the redemption they were looking for, but you know Christ Harrelson was looking down from heaven smiling and shaking his head at their wacky murderous whims.

HARRELSON: Well would you looky here? Seems like I done ended up in heaven. It sure was great when I got to stick my hog in my Wife From Another Place one last time. I sure did like fucking my wife, and her big naturals. (Suddenly serious) But that's all over now. Anyway, Dixon, this is just another note to say, you god damned racist son of a bitch, you may be an absolute no good reprobate... but at least you ain't a midget!

you are misreading the film's tone, severely (I took offense at the "becoming best friends with McDormand" line especially)

we are talking about a ignorant police officer and a guilty mother who are both powerless to make up for their past transgressions and are willing to dole out vigilante justice so as to feel as though they are actually contribute positives to society. the drifter isn't evil incarnate, it's just some dude sharing a story because it makes him appear tough

I don't think the film glorifies or romanticizes flawed individuals, I think it demonstrates that even though all these characters can be judged for basic things about them, they are more three-dimensional and complicated than they get credit for

I agree this was probably McDonagh's intent, it just felt bungled by the see-saw tonal stuff.

the critical response to this movie is crazy to me. it doesn't bother me that people liked it, but it does bother me that it's been nearly universally praised. this feels like a polarizing movie; you'd think the response of critics would reflect at least some of the discussion that's sprung up about it online. but nope, not really!

This was pretty good at getting to the heart of what I disliked about the film (and I realise I just stole a line from it for one of my posts): https://www.theringer.com/movies/2017/11/8/16623634/three-billboards-outside-ebbing-missouri-film-review-frances-mcdormand

One scene I keep coming back to when I think about what failed for me was the speech Mildred makes to the priest. The worst kind of McDonagh writing, garbled and downright offensive politics, in a little faux-shock shell. Lucas Hedges gets his only worthwhile line of the movie right after it I guess.

that review was good, thanks del. agree on the priest speech being cringe-worthy.

i was gonna send my friend a review that summed up how i felt about the movie after we watched it, but i couldn't really find anything, which was frustrating

Also I love McDormand but this reaction to the trailer ended up being very on point:

the closest film i can compare this to is "pain and gain" in terms of its tonal insanity and complete belly-flop of an attempt at humanistic storytelling
