Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri – Review
An absolutely stunning film that will stick with you for days. Frances McDormand is compelling in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri – quite possibly her best performance to date.
Amongst the plethora of stale originality shines this haunting piece. Pushing the boundaries of mainstream cinema releases, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri has hit the mark and started 2018 with what could possibly be one of the hardest films to beat of the year!
With a cast to die for; McDormand, Harrelson and Rockwell simply mesh together an unpredictable plot that somehow, just somehow fuses the chemistry of their characters into one hell of a ride that will keep you wanting to see more till the very end.
McDormand’s flare within the film is uncanny, showing off her seasoned skills and that she can hold the fort better than anyone. Her badassery is inspiring to a point where you feel the urge to help her case. It’s not easy to root completely for a character no matter how they might turn, however McDormand’s command of the screen made for an easy win over. Harrelson and Rockwell almost fit yin and yang, complementing each other while on screen, to a point of complete frustration that will have you nodding and gasping throughout.
The film itself is a sure fire run for ‘Best film’ within this seasons oscar race, amongst a few Goliaths this could in fact be the David to strike them all down. Taking home top spot at Toronto could help glide this film into the spotlight. Martin McDonagh has created a little Masterpiece of cinema and has brought creativity and originality back to Hollywood. Anyone that has the ability to write a script that can turn your opinion of characters around so swiftly gets a a swift tick.
This film is simply not to be missed. A Must see for the season.
