Top 10 Best Movies of 2017:
. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
Martin McDonagh has always entertained me with his filmography, but I didn't know he could blow me off my feet with a tour de force like this one. This is a darkly hilarious and emotional film that will make you laugh, cry, smile, and applaud. It's not your typical Hollywood movie with perfect protagonists and hated antagonists. Everyone is damaged and angry for the right reasons but you feel for them and root for them, despite how much of an asshole they all seem. Frances McDormand is at a career best and simply riveting as Mildred Hayes, a grieving mother, determined to get justice. Sam Rockwell as Dixon is just awesome and deserves an Oscar as well. Woody Harrelson is also not to be ignored as Chief Willougby. The characters McDonagh writes are as memorable as those created by writing masters such as the Coens, and there was hardly a dull moment. In terms of writing and story, this movie was the best of the year, and I'd love for this to win Best Picture, but my top 2 floored me even more and were more of my favorites. So stay tuned for my #2
pick that will be revealed soon!
