It’s a renegade masterpiece that will get you good.
New Orleans Times-Picayune
A meticulously shot and sharply written character study, it plays like a blend of the Coen brothers and Quentin Tarantino, borrowing its subtle philosophical core from the former and its sudden bursts of violence and blood-spattering vitriol from the latter. It’s also a great film, an entertaining and thoughtful examination of one woman’s journey into darkness, as well as a study of the corrosive nature of anger and hate when left unchecked.
San Francisco Chronicle
The movie represents a leap forward for writer-director Martin McDonagh. Three Billboards is as clever and imaginative as McDonagh’s “In Bruges,” in terms of how it makes characters collide in delightful and unexpected ways
Los Angeles Times
In the hands of uncommon writer-director Martin McDonagh and a splendid cast toplined by Frances McDormand in what could be the role of her rich and varied career, the how and why of those billboards becomes a savage film, even a dangerous one, the blackest take-no-prisoners farce in quite some time.
