Why Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri should win the 2018 best picture Oscar
The opening sequence lingers longingly on the three decrepit billboards; soon they will be rented by Mildred Hayes Frances McDormand in order to draw attention to the floundering police investigation into the murder of her daughter Angela. Three Billboards is staggeringly entertaining — its script performs a series of hairpin turns with a mastery that leaves you agog. McDonagh has long coaxed comedy from the friction between the idiotic, the unthinkably painful and the banal. But in this scorching, luminous tragicomedy, the sadness is sadder, the jokes more outrageous, and the space between the two smaller. The criticism centres partly on the Peter Dinklage character, whose dwarfism is a frequent catalyst for humour , as well as what has been perceived as a redemption arc for Dixon , who we are lead to believe has tortured a black man in custody, and is treated by the film with both derision and affection. A slightly thornier issue is the humour derived from this cruelty. But Three Billboards is the polar opposite of the mindless Frat Pack fare its jokes sometimes resemble.
