People will probably give me degrees of flak and guff and shit for criticizing Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri a) at all, and b) specifically in context with its perspectives on American race relations. Those people are wrong. This movie has as strong a grasp on racism in America as Ted Crockett has on America’s swearing in ceremonies. If Martin McDonagh constructed it less frenetically and with a better acknowledgment of dramatic consequences, I’d like it more, but I’d still have the same complaint about race, because that’s me, folks.
But I can’t imagine anyone having a problem with me arguing that The Breadwinner is anything but underrated. Just one man’s opinions, listed alongside a bunch of other opinions in The Playlist’s yearly overrated/underrated feature.
