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: Here’s the Winners and Losers of the Festival

15 September 2017 9:43 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

At 255 titles, the Toronto International Film Festival’s smorgasbord is 20 percent smaller than last year — and still overwhelming. A number of filmmakers took creative risks that paid off with exuberant praise, from Darren Aronofsky’s outrageous “mother!” to Guillermo del Toro’s inimitable “The Shape of Water,” but many others found themselves in the doghouse, or worse, utterly ignored.

Buyers were unhappy that there wasn’t much to choose from at this sellers’ market, because many distributors cherry-picked the more promising titles ahead of time — which is its own risk, as when The Orchard’s La riot drama “Kings” didn’t meet high expectations.

Here’s how the festival shook out.

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’ 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.

‘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, »

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 »

Celebrate National Look-Alike Day with these 7 famous doppelgängersCelebrate National Look-Alike Day with these 7 famous doppelgängersAdriana Floridia4/20/2017 9:40:00 Am

Today is National Look-Alike day, and so naturally we're here to take a look at some startlingly similar actors and actresses in film.

Have you ever watched a movie thinking it was one actor on screen, only to realize later that it was actually someone who just looked a lot like them? We've been there, and we'll admit that we've mixed up these actors before. Who hasn't thought that Frodo was Harry, and Harry was Frodo? We've also confused Gandalf and Dumbledore, but we're trying to put that one behind us. 

The following actors could quite possibly be related, if we looked at their ancestral charts. If that's not the case then we can't explain the phenomenon of their nearly identical likenesses. We wish we had a celebrity twin.

A Year After ‘Birth of a Nation,’ Fox Searchlight Lines Up Oscar Season Players

19 April 2017 11:15 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

One year ago, Fox Searchlight Pictures sat primed for awards season with a sure-fire contender in Nate Parker’s “The Birth of a Nation.” On the heels of a pricey pick-up at the Sundance Film Festival, riding the ongoing wave of a diversity rally cry, the distributor that had claimed the best picture trophy two out of the previous three years was poised to dominate.

To say the least, none of that panned out as planned. And there was little else remaining in the quiver. Searchlight was ultimately left with a Toronto acquisition (Pablo Larrain’s “Jackie”) and an uncharacteristically modest showing on the circuit.

But the mini-major has been busy lining up its players for a 2017 comeback. Over the last several weeks, Searchlight has set release dates for three films in the thick of the season: “Battle of the Sexes,” from “Little Miss Sunshine” duo Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, »
