Three sentence movie reviews: Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri

 In All (-ish), Three Sentence Movie Reviews

This movie does a couple of thing very well. For one, it’s very gripping, what with all the things going on.* Also, every time I thought I had a good bead on them, each of the character would take a small turn, making for the most well-rounded characters I’ve seen in film this year.**

Cost: $9.00 (I know!  I was invited, though, and I don’t mind throwing $$ to this particular theater.)
Where watched: at the Hollywood Theater with Kelly.

*It would make a nice study in upping the dramatic tension.
**For a very funny film, I did also walk out of the theater with a very dark feeling in the pit of my stomach.  I think Martin McDonagh excels at tapping into something icky about the human condition.

    I have heard such great things about this film. Do you think it is TFS/will I like it? I adore Frances McDormand.

      This is a NFS film from about every angle there could be. Frances McDormand is quite good.

      However, this movie is fairly decisive. There’s a lot of stuff that is kind of “eh” when one stops to think about it. I really liked Melissa Taminga’s Random (very spoilery) notes, which you can read here, if you so desire. There’s a lot of race stuff that is very not good.
