"What the film is about which is about sort of statesmanship and leadership and the eloquence of winston churchill and i don't mind having that in the film if it actually happened but it seems have no basis in fact whatsoever which turns the movie into something i think that's contrary to what it wants to be about yes so i mean there were places in that film that i really liked and i really like bend mendelssohn as the king but other than that i be happy when we can stop talking about that movie let's talk about one or the other nominees which danced when quite a few words and has been hugely controversial and that is three billboards outside ebbing missouri i think that you and i have kind of the the same read on this movie which is that what i saw it i i liked to but also as little kind of throw there was so beloved by so many people because i thought some big glaring issues with it and these are not like the issues that been pointed out by critics who are writing about the issues of has with racial representation and other matters like that but their slick weird total imbalances and things that kind of flu all over the place and you elicit you're at a smart take on it were you dr about it as a flannery o'connor story so i i love you told me a little bit about how you view this movie and like how your relationship to it has changed since she first saw yeah i saw it right at the end of toronto film festival in september so people had seen it and talked about it but there wasn't a lot of buzz perhaps yet and i'm a big martin mcdonough fans so i was really excited to see it i came out and thought oh okay like i it didn't stick with me i thought frances mcdormand was gray was very quotable it had a lot of great moments but i couldn't figure out really would it added up to and when i reviewed it i noted that.

"Lebed out of windows on fire is movie for anybody who hasn't seen it yet is surprisingly violent and yet weirdly cartoonish in the violence that you do get everything just kept not making sets to be at some point you get a new police chief like an acting police chief praised the black man fitting claude cia rome a liar right but why would they send him their league it just the movie keeps trying to make a point about something this is the thing we start talking about because you saw in august a lotta people told me to see it i'm just out of curiosity i finally solved a few weeks ago and the thing that we really settled on was in the generified occasion of the american experience you lose all the nuances that make america so interesting mmhmm and the loss of that regionality is why it's so confusing because a black person coming into a southern police station would read differently i mean it's it's just there were sort of a a compression of at type of american experience that made no sense on the screen martin mcdonough is the person haroon directed this moves british irish eurussia what i think is going on here is that he is taking all of these regional lissom in trying to create some kind of high pressure system out of mmhmm so you have like what he thinks is southern racism you have what he thinks of his like midwestern niceness yeah and you have the you know the movie influences this movie is clearly under a lake the coen brothers and quentin tarantino and also like the anchor of the show us bureau rain in and you have this do of things that don't quite make a lot of sense but they're trying to point to something about like what america actually is but he doesn't really know and it's not just because he's not american it's that lic nobody could take this combination of things like these these set of instruments and make good.

"Frances mcdormand in woody harrelson gan ours are spectacular in this movie but they are the only characters that seem fully formed in this movie he and the other characters are cartoonish and sam rockwell while the white like a lot is simply not in the first half of the movie is simply not beleaguered digging would not have that job he's a maniac he's a total crazy person you cannot have them on a police force anywhere in the world unless he's the chief know because if he works for somebody else that somebody else is going to say we just can't have this guy i know what you mean that movie i with you on i'm with you on and it really hit cam rockwell is getting a lot of attention for that performance could it very showy in there's not to work with and he's a very good at error and woody harrelson it's great magnificent great sympathy i think you're exactly right about those character the more that i i think frances mcdormand the woman she play is such an avatar for the rage and the day bear that is permeating society right now that it just cathartic to watch her we do this stuff and then she now there who had sought of character named angry but i think once i left the movie in once i kind of got out of the spell of her got out from under the spell the flaws really came to the four to the service for me and the more time that goes by the less i mean the more problems i have with this movie i really do think it's you know it's written by this guy martin mcdonough um a play right and i think that it really shows it it it it feels like it's been written like a play because it's very contrived and it's very much a product of his imagination and i guess this is you know your argument at the subway see and it's like well it's his world and he can do what he wants in it but i just i founded unconvincing and kind of opportunistic in terms of the way that it.

"On a lot of people's top10 with it was marketed as a film that was going to be kind of an award contender at the end of the year and that is three billboards outside ebbing missouri yes i am a big fan of of director martin mcdonough and um i think a part of that is because his movies often feel like they are written to me but in the best way i love his characters i love the way that he sort of drops in little bursts of violence were really sort of off the wall comedy three billboards i think is the culmination of a lot of the stuff that he's done in his other movies like in bruges and seven psychopaths frances mcdormand hit has this lead performance that is just a fearsome and really an incredible encapsulation of a lot of the rage that a lot of people felt last year especially women and i love same rockwell in his supporting turn totally against type not end of remotely like anything else that he's ever done this is a challenging movie and i know that it it has experienced a critical backlash sense it's been released but i still find it to be really really rewarding and i think i don't know if i saw a better written film in 2017 than three billboards i love what rockwall does in this film and i love i love stories where you have a protagonist and a uh.

"If not for another movie were gonna talk about in a few minutes i would say may be the most memorable performance of the year in frances mcdormand ya this movie brought up a lot of a very strong feelings and most of them where were a mixture of of appalled fear and admiration for the character she plays both as it's designed and written and as she plays that i i think she's just a really memorable talent and i think martin mcdonough finds all sorts of ways to to tie into what she does best in that level of ferocity and lack of compromise and doesn't give a crap right and yet care so passionate yet everything i really comes through dishonor share that she can pull that off there is definitely a better forum to respond to much of the criticism of the movie some of it i have engage with a letterbox already as much as i like to i'm not gonna bore you all by going seen by seen beat by be through that i think people are getting along with italy like eight hours for this has let way i want to focus on the experience i had and what i took away from movie one point i do want to address 'cause i keep saying this pop up in comments is people seem to really have an issue with a certain characters quote unquote turn near the end of the film that they find too abrupt and honestly my first response is i think people who feel at way or dramatically overstating and simplifying the journey that character is on and where he's at by the end of the film but i think beyond that there are also overlooking two highly traumatic scenes that that character experiences that he almost certainly would get thrown on the path to change after those moments those moments are almost biblical to go back to mother of course they would set him in a different direction is it a transformation it certainly an attempted transformation that we see but it's in progress and only in progress met singer he's got my back a little bit we're going to hear from him from those leading us view and screencrush later in the show i think he had it as his second favor film of the year and he says it's a movie about how anger consumes and destroys and how the only.

"Um and it seems like it's it's starting to become one of the frontrunners probably for the oscar race to and it's for people who haven't seen it it's a film by martin mcdonough i think um get who drafted in british i think it's best manfriend bridge at its stars fronts mcdormand um as a woman uh in a small town on a vengeance mission essentially to uh get the police to find the person who raped and killed her daughter and so she takes out these three billboards that uh excoriates the sheriff essentially asking him why hasn't dispense halt yet um and you know i think it's interesting in the sense that i think people are starting to guam onto the film right now as like the movie of the moment that we need a four uh in this post weinstein era in hollywood but i think it at the same time it like illustrates a lot of the problems with that both that as a symbol and then also the post wind seem moment a bit to me the conversation has been dominated by white women in as fonda sort of pointed out she said like the reason why it's getting so much attention is because everyone the victims are beautiful and white in famous and that's not to discount what happened or any of that or that the it's a very fucked up patriarchal system that's at work but i do think that we can work at being creating a more inclusive and intersectional understanding of sexual assault generally and i think that that conversation is necessary and important to look at the ways in which certain people are left out of it um but three billboards is kind of interesting as an example because it it is a movie that is very bad about race in like very sort of obvious clumsy ways and i feel like is a less of the ways in which uh why hollywood would also like be like yes this is the movie that were picking because it's kind of like ignores the black characters in these like really almost holier use ways like like i have you seen it i have i don't know if we were in this i think we were in the same.
