Movie Rant: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Yesterday my friend and I went to the cinema. And when we had found our seats, we noticed there was no music playing. Normally it always does. And 15 minutes later a lady comes in and tells us they have troubles with starting the movie. After a few minutes they fixed it and kindly skipped all the advertisement and the movie begun. And so begins this rant instead of a review. Because I don't know how to review this movie because of all the feels it gave me...

We hadn’t seen the trailer of this movie or heard anything about this movie. I only read that it had won a few Golden Globes: Best Motion Picture - drama, Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama, Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture, Best Screenplay - Motion Picture. I guess that’s all of it. 

So we went in completely open to everything this movie could be and it was completely weird. This movie is crazy. The feelings this movie gives you are unreal. You even love the biggest asshole because you just feel for them. The lifes of all these people are ruined. Whether that is by the loss of a daughter, a sickness or someone who is a mamaboy e.g. my mom says....

You get introduced to these character and immediately feel hate towards a few of them and love for the others. But later, as the movie goes on it’s so confusing. So corrupt, so bad and so good.

At one point I was literally sobbing when the billboards were on fire. That scene went right through my heart. It broke to a million pieces. And after that my heart broke again and again for other people. I won’t explain the story because I’m scared I say something wrong. I just say: experience it yourself. But don’t think it’s a fun movie to see. It’s just an amazing piece of art.

There was only one thing that I absolutely didn’t like about the movie and that was the amount of swearing. Sometimes people swear in  movies and that's okay. Not needed but I can see past it. But in this movie literally every sentence had the F-word it in. And although it added to the atmosphere of the movie I just don’t like so much swearing. Me and friend thought that that was one of the bad points of this movie.

And here is a little spoiler so stop reading if you don’t want to read the spoiler!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It has an open end! And when the screen went black I literally said out loud: nooooo! Why??!
I hate open endings because I keep speculating and thinking about them. Which is the main point of an open ending. But it’s frustrating to me.

What did you think of this movie?
