Tiff 2017. Correspondences #13

17 September 2017 2:49 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Dear Danny,We blinked, and ten days passed. How swiftly time goes by when in festival mode, just floating on films and friends. It’s not until I’m on the way home, writing my final dispatch in between airport terminals, that I realize how tremendously exhausted I am. A good time, then, to be reflecting on Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri, quite the strong cup of black coffee. As a non-fan of In Bruges (2008) and Seven Psychopaths (2012), I was pleasantly surprised by the grim comic force of Martin McDonagh’s morality tale, a Southern Gothic hamlet pushed through the filter of British Catholic guilt. The eponymous placards are positioned on a dilapidated road and painted red with a confrontational query, part of the crusade waged by the grieving Mildred (Frances McDormand) against the local lawmakers who’ve failed to locate the man behind her daughter’s rape and murder. »

Tiff 2017: ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri’ Review: Dir. Martin McDonagh (2017)

11 September 2017 3:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri review: Martin McDonagh completes a near perfect trilogy of movies with this crime-comedy-drama led by a superb Frances McDormand.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri review by Paul Heath, September 2017.

Martin McDonagh brings his third feature to the screen. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri follows the impressive double-whammy of In Bruges and Seven Psychopaths, the likes of Woody Harrelson and Sam Rockwell returning from his second movie – both of whom seem to be having an absolute blast from start to finish.

Make no mistake though, this is very much a film belonging to Frances McDormand. She plays the character of Mildred Hayes, a single mother of two who decides to take things into her own hands after her daughter was brutally raped and murdered seven months previous. With the police investigation seemingly having dried up, Hayes purchases the use of the three billboards of the title, »

One Final Trailer for Superb 'Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri'

7 September 2017 3:38 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"I've got nothing to arrest you for..." "Not yet you ain't." Fox Searchlight has debuted a second trailer for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, the latest dark comedy from Martin McDonagh, of the films In Bruges and Seven Psychopaths previously. The story is about a mother in a town in Missouri who puts up three billboards questioning the local police as to why they haven't solved her daughter's rape and murder. Frances McDormand stars as the woman at the center of it all, and the exceptional ensemble cast includes Sam Rockwell, Woody Harrelson, Abbie Cornish, Kathryn Newton, Peter Dinklage, John Hawkes, and Lucas Hedges. This film played to rave reviews at Venice where it just premiered, as a very dark and biting drama with some outstanding performances from the entire cast. I just saw it at the festival and it's good, but I didn't laugh as much as I expected. »

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is a darkly comedic drama from Academy Award® winner Martin McDonagh (In Bruges). After months have passed without a culprit in her daughter’s murder case, Mildred Hayes (Academy Award® winner Frances McDormand) makes a bold move, commissioning three signs leading into her town with a controversial message directed at William Willoughby (Academy Award® nominee Woody Harrelson), the town’s revered chief of police. When his second-in-command Officer Dixon (Sam Rockwell), an immature mother’s boy with a penchant for violence, gets involved, the battle between Mildred and Ebbing’s law enforcement is only exacerbated. »

‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’ Trailer: Frances McDormand Is Mad As Hell

7 September 2017 9:39 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Do Not mess with a mother mad as f*cking hell. That’s essentially the premise of “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” director Martin McDonagh‘s latest. He’s the filmmaker behind the pitch-black comedies, “Seven Psychopaths” and  “In Bruges,” a terrifically underrated and dark dramedy starring an amazing turn by Colin Farrell. Dark comedy is McDonagh‘s bread and butter and he approaches his latest with the same cutting wit and sardonicism.

Venice 2017 Review: Martin McDonagh Triumphs Again With Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

4 September 2017 12:00 PM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

In Bruges director Martin McDonagh has laid down what could be the first real winning hand at the 74th Biennale with Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, and whilst there's definitely still time for someone else to clinch this year's Golden Lion, that doesn't stop the Englishman's latest script from being just about everything you could ask for in a screenplay. It's certainly not as out-and-out a comedy as the director's last two features, but Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri nevertheless still has all of McDonagh's unforgettable wit. And as the title probably suggests, you should be sure to expect something a little idiosyncratic or different. In fact, at first, it almost seems as if McDonagh is starting off with a rather uncharacteristically moody drama. The first...

‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’ Review: Frances McDormand Shines in Nihilistic Comedy — Venice

4 September 2017 9:01 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri” certainly feels in line with Martin McDonagh’s previous films, lathering on all the delightful profanity, corrosive one-liners, and acrid curveballs that spiked “In Bruges” and “Seven Psychopaths” with rakish charm. But here McDonagh has crafted the ultimate bait and switch, a film that carries its weary nihilism with a surprisingly light touch, an affectation later dropped in favor of an unexpected message of grace. Which is to say that not only is “Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri” the director’s most accomplished film yet, it’s also his most compassionate.

Of course, that’s compassion on McDonagh’s terms — the salty writer-director didn’t exactly become Norman Rockwell overnight. But for all the grim narrative tidings and sharp turns where acutely funny bouts of violence become acutely frightening, “Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri” is the story of jagged, messy people learning to co-exist, »

Frances McDormand Delivers but Sam Rockwell Is the Story in ‘Three Billboards’

4 September 2017 8:51 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In terms of the awards season, all eyes will surely be on Frances McDormand in Martin McDonagh’s “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” which premiered at the Venice Film Festival Monday. But while the actress delivers a more nuanced turn than the fire-breathing character you might expect from the film’s trailer, it’s Sam Rockwell who really punches through the ensemble with a dramatic arc and a reminder that the journeyman actor can be one of the best tools in a director’s arsenal.

Rockwell stars as hateful Missouri law officer Jason Dixon, clearly a few bricks shy of a load, a simpleton who is the product of his limited environment. But he’s by no means a caricature. Jason has deep admiration and love for Woody Harrelson’s noble Sheriff Bill Willoughby, under fire from McDormand’s scorned Mildred Hayes, who seeks justice for her raped and murdered daughter. He »

‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’ Review: A Ludicrous Barnburner | Venice 2017

4 September 2017 7:18 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The impeccably titled Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, the new film from In Bruges filmmaker Martin McDonagh, is a catalogue of American hatred. Principally, the two-sided hatred of police for protecting their own instead of facing the hatred that oozes within many police stations throughout the country. McDonagh uses many hateful words toward people of color, homosexuals, and the police; The Show Me State is here to show us all sides of hate in Three Billboards. It focuses primarily on two characters where hatred of the other side is the basis of their character. Hatred of the police and … »

Francis McDormand Talks Channeling John Wayne for 'Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri'

Martin McDonagh’s new film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri played on Monday at the Venice Film Festival, where the director and cast were treated to a rare standing ovation from the press room — nonstop applause greeted the filmmakers, with others calling “Oscar!” for lead Frances McDormand.

The third feature from the In Bruges director, Three Billboards combines McDonagh’s trademark skill of mixing melancholy with humor, creating complex characters whose motivations are constantly shifting. She plays a grieving mother who buys three billboards that send a not-so-subtle message to the town’s police chief (Woody Harrelson) for failing to find »

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri review – violent carnival of small-town America

4 September 2017 5:29 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Frances McDormand is commanding as a woman avenging the murder of her daughter in Martin McDonagh’s modern-day western

Frances McDormand gives a powerhouse performance in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, an uproarious delight of a film that snaps the eyelids up like roller-blinds and had the Venice film festival audience breaking into rounds of spontaneous applause. She plays Mildred Hayes, an angel of vengeance at loggerheads with the world. Lock the door and bolt the windows. Mildred comes rampaging up Main Street like hard-boiled Spencer Tracy in Bad Day at Black Rock.

Playwright Martin McDonagh won plaudits for his bustling 2008 feature debut, In Bruges – but Three Billboards is on a whole other level. The director tosses it into competition, underarm, like a firecracker, where it promptly explodes in a flash of jokes, a splash of blood and a twisting plume of ornate dialogue. It remains to be seen how »

Venice Film Review: ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’

4 September 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” the third feature written and directed by the playwright and filmmaker Martin McDonagh (“In Bruges,” “Seven Psychopaths”), sets itself up with no time to spare. A trio of old, weathered, falling-apart billboards stand in the morning fog, like broken dominoes, along a sparsely traveled road on the outskirts of Ebbing. Mildred Hayes (Frances McDormand), her face bent into a scowl of despair and resolve, marches into the advertising office that controls the billboards and draws up a contract to rent them for a year, offering a one-month down payment of $5,000. She then has the billboards painted red and adorned with three linked messages in black capital letters: “Still No Arrests?” “How Come, Chief Willoughby?” And finally, “Raped While Dying.”

Mildred, we learn, lost her teenage daughter, Angela, seventh months before, when the girl was raped, killed, and set ablaze (not necessarily in that order). The billboard messages are an attack on the »
