Description

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.)

Reviews

  • Somewhat flawed, but well-acted film

    Given the recent critical praise, I really wanted to like this, but the pacing paired with plot holes (minor spoilers on next paragraph) made for a less-than-satisfying viewing experience. Sam Rockwell and Woody Harrelson have finally received the recognition they deserve, and Frances McDormand was stellar as always, but they could not fight their way out of a half-baked screenplay that presents more questions than answers: usually a good thing, but that probably will not translate into a worthwhile two hour investment of time for most viewers. Some plot holes and directorial missteps include (some spoilers ahead) 1. a burn victim being discharged from the hospital in an unrealistic time frame in order to advance the story 2. arson not being investigated beyond brief questioning 3. several other directorial decisions that do not correlate with characters’ given personalities, including someone climbing a billboard to extinguish fire instead of doing so from a safer perspective 4. coincidental placement of characters in shops, restaurants and other locations; acceptable in a small town, but occurring so frequently that the overall screenplay comes off as contrived

    Completely unnecessary, totally and awkwardly forced profanity that wasn’t anything near authentic. Pretty much ruined the entire movie. But hey, if you’re into that sort of thing, have a blast.
  • Horrible ending

    Wasn’t really funny, plot was slow and unbelievable in a that would never happen sense, and the movie tried to be to many genres. RT rating is on crack ....as usual

    A lot of things in this movie seem designed to divide an already divided country. Disappointed.

    Unnecessary and excessive profanity from all characters. Great scenes. Fabulous acting. Stupid and reverse-racist stereotypes detracted from the movie, although one person did change, which gave some depth. Great dialogue. The ending was a major letdown.
  • Amazing!!!

    This movie is definitely in the top ten of the best movies that I have ever seen. Frances McDormand completely nailed her role, and Woody Harrelson was beyond phenomenal. This movie is absolutely worth purchasing!
  • Still new releasees can't rent.

    This method of forcing people to buy when most movies you just need to see once is criminal. Let people rent same day.
  • Deserving of all the hype
