Three Billboards is a good movie with a very dark sense of humor, that could turn some people off. However, it has a stellar performance from McDormand, and an interesting scripts which turn it into one of the stronger movies of the year.

Good movie - I had no idea it was a comedy-don't know if laughing twice makes it a comedy. I was really into this movie and again it ended like alot of them do leaving up to use to really figure it out. The ending wasn't that bad as some. It dragged through in the beginning but got really good. Frances McDormand did a great job of acting.

"Fargo" with anger issues. That what i describe "three billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri." I see it as a comedy, but I don't think so. It's too angry to be a comedy, so I probably describe it as a dark comedy. Frances McDormand plays a woman who play a large sum of money to place an ad reminding the town sheriff that it's been seven months since her daughter was raped and murdered, and the police in ebbing has failed to solve the case. Before the ad was put up, the three billboards haven't been active since the 1980's. Woody Harrelson plays the sheriff and this is a great year for the actor who appear in three other movies plus this movie. he's one busy actor. Frances McDormand is the driving force behind the movie. Her performance is great because we as an audience don't know what she will do next. the same could be said for Sam Rockwell. :Like McDormand, we don't know what he'll do next. this movie will have you guessing of what will happen next. The film was written and directed by Martin McDouagh, who will get award show buzz. Not only this is one of the best movies of the year, but the most original movie I saw in weeks.

Two standout performances delivered by Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell supported by a stellar script. I have no doubt "Three Billboards" will get some Oscar love this awards season.

While I appreciated and liked the grounded story, there were a few moments that I felt underwhelmed (the ending, in particular). It's not the movie you go to for escapism, but instead one that addresses real loss and grief, in a somewhat similar fashion to Manchester by the Sea did last year (ironic that they both starred actor Lucas Hedges).

Overall, Three Billboards is a performance and screenplay driven think piece, that does get a little slow from time to time.

I saw this after the 2018 Oscar nominations were announced. Is it worthy of multiple nominations? Yes.

I remember watching the trailer for this film several months before its release, and thought it looked a bit dull, with a little humor thrown in. Having now seen it, I can say that it's one of the best films of the year, but the ending left me with an unsatisfied feeling.

The story is very strong. A mother is tired of the local police not being able to come up with any leads in her daughters brutal murder. So she has several billboards erected to try and prod them along. This results in a lot of tension between her, the police, and some of the local residents.

If you get a chance to see this film, you won't be disappointed that you spent the time to do so.

This is a very powerful movie with excellent performances. Even though I felt the ending was a little uneven, I enjoyed it more than I did "The Shape of Water" which won the Best Picture Oscar.

Frances McDormand carries this movie from beginning to end, and had she not excelled, it would not have had the same impact. Her statue was well-deserved. Sam Rockwell also received an Oscar for his performance, but it was Woody Harrelson's nominated performance that I was more impressed with. While Rockwell had to chew up every scene he was in, Harrelson had to convey the depth of his character while also playing against the two opposing forces in play.

This is a movie that sticks with you long after you finish watching it. I'm not sure I ever want to see it again, but I'm sure that doing so would help me to appreciate more aspects of it, both in the telling of the story and the actors who participated.

Of all the Best Picture nominees I've seen (only missing Phantom Thread and Call Me By Your Name), this is my pick for the Best Picture of 2017.
