It’s violent, it’s funny in places, it presents cliches and then subverts them. It’s a rather Coen-Brothers-ish movie, and Frances McDormand (who has starred in several Coen Brothers movies) fully deserves the acclaim that she is receiving.
My rating: 4.5 stars.
Gosh, that trailer *is* violent!
It’s a magnificent film — a wonderful script. I’ve seen some good movies this year including THE SHAPE OF WATER, THE FLORIDA PROJECT and I did enjoy THE POST and, to some degree THE GREATEST SHOWMAN, as well, but this is my pick so for for the year.
