    Do drugs and watch this movie.

    Do more drugs while watching this movie.

    Do even more drugs when you finish this movie.

    Repeat and rinse.

    Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    ★★★½

    Not a bad little flick. I'm not sure it's worth all the awards it's getting but it's definitely watchable. I think to call this a lesser McDonagh is a bit of a disservice. Honestly I think this is a little more in line with his stage plays than the films he's written/directed thus far. I'd like to see it again to really get a grasp on what is going on. Seems like a pretty good rumination on Americans and Trumpists.

    Incredible film about language, lose, and love. Beautifully packaged in a great science fiction drama. I love this renaissance of smart scifi that seems to be gaining traction. I can't wait to see what Villeneuve does with Blade Runner.

    Great little samurai anime. Love the occult stuff in it. Not bad.
