Such a good video! And I agree with you about the ending. A lot people have been calling it a failure because it didn't have a definitive ending, but that's not the point. The point of the film was how anger and grief transform us, not whether or not we wrap up a murder mystery with a neat bow. The fact that Mildred and Dixon came together and showed each other some compassion and camaraderie in the end was more closure and fuel for hope than catching the killer would have been (even if it would have felt vindicating).

I just watched a screener of this film and it was very powerful. The only problem I found with it is that it imparts its wisdom in baby steps. Who burned down the billboards? Was it the stupid policeman that got fired for being an ass? Did he truly rape and kill her daughter? Why did the suspect break the ornament rabbit? What was he so pissed at her about? What was he so guilty and shameful about that would cause him to intimidate her like that?
I think the most important question is, would they be justified in killing the rapist who raped in Iran/Afghanistan or wherever outside of the us? They wouldn't be justified but the ending is so blindingly powerful! They are both uncertain BUT they decide to make the decision in the spur of the moment anyway! They both let their emotions decide for them!
That is being true to yourself! That is being God!
I am so glad I got to watch this non american film because unlike the superhero redundant shit, these kinds of films are so very hard to find( especially in cinemas).

It was a glass of juice, not water that Dixon's victim offered him in the hospital room.

Thanks for showing the real core of this movie. When I saw the trailer, I was afraid that it revealed too much. When I saw the movie, I saw how much more the movie is about. The complexity of the characters was something I didn't expect. And, the non-ending ending was perfect.

Anger is the necessary boundary emotion. Rage, violence, and revenge are not the same as anger. They are the result of repressed anger and grief, and the toxic legacy of patriarchy.

For those who havent seen any of mcdonoughs work, it gets uniquely dark, but is weirdly life affirming.

It's a brilliant film in parts. Great acting, some wonderful dialogue, heartbreaking moments and a teriffic ending. But, anyone that tells me that this is at the quality of In Bruges is crazy. That film has a perfect screenplay and all of the elements surrounding it support it beautifully. Three billboards has pacing problems in the first half, abbie Cornish can't seem to decide which accent her character is supposed to have, there are contrived moments that seem incredibly lazy, sam rockwell gives a great performance for an unnecessarily racist character with an unbelievable arc that is completely unearned. It doesn't seem to know what to do with its black characters in a film with racist characters, and it doesn't even try to give those characters a voice. The director Martin McDonagh never does more than one draft in his screenplays and it shows. Because this film needed at least two rewrites to be at the level of In Bruges

Do a "Call Me By Your Name: Explained" similar to your Moonlight video! I feel like it contains so much content for a video like that!

This movie was so good. Saw it with my family. We had an interesting take away. During some scenes, the audience was laughing so hard at something none of us found very funny. (The priest scene.) My Dad pointed out that Mildred isn’t supposed to be an aspirational figure. No matter how justified her anger is and how cathartic by proxy her actions are. At the core she is a deeply troubled woman who escalates from civil disobedience to arson and possible manslaughter without much of a transition. Hopefully the audience realizes that by the end.

i found this movies activism performative, and its message kinda pretentious. it thinks itself radical for saying the most boring uninteresting message possible. the fucks gonna happen at the end of the movie? they’re gonna give the violent rapist a flower and teach him the meaning of love? on a technical scale its a well done movie i just think the message is boring, beaten to death, and wont impact its target audience

One of the brilliant works by Martin McDonagh

I was very curious about this film, definitely going to give it a watch on DVD or Netflix.
The overuse of the word "love" is confusing. I don't think you have to love or even like another person to feel compassion & empathy for them & see them as a human being with flaws, same as yourself. Giving into anger & hate & letting it be expressed as violence is a very human inclination unfortunately, but violence usually begets more violence. That's probably why human societies developed laws & rules & customs regarding social interaction & behavior in the first place.

Great analysis, but can I add: Anger and Love are not mutually exclusive. In many cases, both anger and love are necessary. I personally have found that a lot of the anger I feel toward the world is actually coming from a place of love---I love the world, and I'm angry that it is not a better place---and I think that's what passion is. So, yes, anger begets anger, but sometimes, love begets anger too.

Thanks so much for this video! I absolutely loved this movie enought to go back to watch it in theaters a second time. I'm excited that the team on ScreenPrism also wants to talk about this movie, but I think you can look deeper into this movie. What makes Three Billboards so unique is that it doesn't just label anger as a problem to be solved or worked through. It's an emotion with a lot more depth then it's often given credit for (especially in the greater context of hollywood screenwriting). Thinking about the phrase "anger begets anger" watch to see all the ways that characters are motivated by anger. A flashback even tells us that the earliest plotpoint in the film hinges on the daughter being too angry to accept cab money from her mom. And what about the silent anger that's demonstrated in each of the black community members in Ebbing? The torturing of a black man in police custody hangs over their dialogue yet none of these characters act out their anger. What to make of all this is something I can't write down in the span of a youtube comment but I hope people get to find out through watching for themselves a few times. Thanks again for making this video and giving this movie some needed recognition!

I always thought of this movie with theme of" Tragedy and The Evolution of a Charactet".
But man this movie was fucking awesome
WedgeRadio - 2018-01-08
The theme of this movie is catharsis. I feel like this video missed it's point.

My favorite part was when the plot conveniently allowed Mildred to get away with arson so that she could learn that we have to "love each other" lol

Just got back from the movie and seeing this in my subscription box made my day. Sam Rockwell, Frances McDormand, and Woody Harrelson made this movie and the theme is very thought provoking.

I liked your analysis, but if I'm being honest, I hated this movie. It seems I'm the only one though haha

There’s a theory that the guy who Dixon thought was the rapist was ACTUALLY the rapist. Although since he was a soldier in the army it was covered up by the new sheriff and the rapist’s army higher ups since they knew how bad that would look if word ever broke out about what the soldier/rapist did.
Rane - 2018-01-07
Another great video for a great film.
Burton Brother Productions - 2018-01-07
Yeah, I agree with this main theme. But I wish that the movie had thrown people of color in it more love. Denise has like six lines and is basically just a plot point to make us dislike the police (for good reason).
