Three Billboards is a remarkable film for two reasons. It contains virtually every dramatic device there is, from gratuitous violence to self sacrifice to betrayal to love. It makes the film tremendously varied and always interesting, as characters change sides, take matters into their own hands, and pay the price. No good deed goes unpunished, and life is a precarious state. In a small town, your enemy one minute is your ally the next, despite everything.
The other reason is that unlike America today, where doubling down seems to be everyone’s first reaction, almost every character in the film comes to a decision point and chooses against revenge or violence or retribution. For that, someone is saved, and not necessarily the decision-taker. So rather than a constant downward spiral of entrenched positions, payback and bitterness, there is instead a slender thread of hope and light, that humans have the capacity to think and reflect on the implications, not just react and lash out (though there is a lot of that too). Martin McDonagh has written a very full and fulfilling story in the best storyteller tradition: there is a message to it all.
This is my last review for Amazon. I’ve been reviewing since 1997 here, and Amazon has continually removed functions until there are none left. I can no longer see my scores, communicate with other reviewers or know when someone has commented on a review so that I can respond. I made it up to #176 out of about 55 million reviewers worldwide, and 12,600 of you have voted for my reviews. But with zero possibility of feedback, and burying my 50 vote reviews below one word reviews by AVP reviews with no votes at all, there is no point. So if you vote for this review, please do it as a protest.
Award-winning actress Frances McDormand (Fargo) delivers a stunningly powerful performance in this darkly comic drama that has been hailed as one of the year¡¯s best films. A murdered girl¡¯s defiant mother (McDormand) boldly paints three local signs with a controversial message, igniting a furious battle with a volatile cop (Sam Rockwell) and the town¡¯s revered chief of police (Woody Harrelson.)
Winner of 2 Academy Awards(r) In an Oscar(r) winning performance, Frances McDormand stars as the outraged mother of a murdered daughter who makes a bold move: painting 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 (Oscar-winner 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. Nominated for 7 Oscars(r) including Best Picture, Martin McDonagh’s dramedy is “darkly comic, chronically compelling”–New York Daily News. 2 hrs., 1 DVD. Mature content.
