Highly Suspect Reviews: Three Billboards Outside Ebbings, Missouri

Frances McDormand plays Mildred, a woman living in a small town who is seething with anger because still, 7 months after the rape and murder of her teenage daughter, the local police haven’t done anything about it. So, taking aim specifically at the local Sheriff (Woody Harrelson) she pays for three billboards (natch) to be erected which pose her question. This makes the town erupt in a certain degree of simmering chaos and sets the tone for what we felt is one of, if not the best, movies of the year. Not that it comes as a huge surprise, being from the mind and lens of Martin McDonagh (In Bruges). Listen to Chris, Richard, Marco, and Lara lavish it with praise.

**Warning: There are some mild spoilers in our review. We recommend you go see this film…like, now, and THEN listen the review.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
