It’s far from a masterpiece, yet it holds you, it adds up, and it’s something to see.

For a story built on such dark foundations, it’s weirdly reassuring. It’s also enormous fun.

It all makes for soaringly satisfying viewing, yet the satisfaction comes from blistering performances and virtuosic screenwriting, and absolutely nothing else.

A bold and showboating affair, robustly drawn and richly written; a violent carnival of small-town American life. Yet it has a big, beating heart, even a rough-edged compassion for its brawling inhabitants.

Can be celebrated for putting the 60-year old McDormand centrestage and letting her tongue rip, and for the slightly risqué manner in which it elicits laughs/gasps from its viewers.

While the film continues almost throughout to generate great whoops of shocking laughter, it's the notes of genuine sorrow, compassion and contrition that resonate.

I'm just gonna say about the females in this movie. The playwright gets it so right with Mildred that he forgot that a town can actually have more than one well rounded female character. There was the intriguing wife of the cop - she was far to interesting to be set dressing. What was that Australian doing so far from home? What was the connection between...

A strong storyline and complex characters carry this western style movie to a rather unsettling climax. Sam Rockwell and Frances McDormand shine while Woody Harrelson brings nothing really new to his character but does a solid job. I didn't love it as much as I expected from the reviews although Rockwell may have done his best work ever in this so there may...

Of the three acting pillars in this light-hearted-yet-very-much-heavy drama, Frances McDormand delivers a really solid take on a strong-willed but hurting mother of a murdered daughter. It is the classic character arc of a protagonist out for vengeance, learning to forgive yet we are left wondering what will happen when the credits start rolling - a...

It's very funny and features some excellent work from McDormand and Rockwell. The film looks good and wins points for being fairly unique. I just struggled to find a way into this movie emotionally, because of the abrasive characters and the fact that it was so obviously written to within an inch of itself (not allowing room for organic plot...

The setup was great, the characters and performances were spectacular but some may be left cold by its ambiguous ending. I highly recommend others to check it out regardless due to the highly entertaining dialogue and how well the characters were fleshed out but for me, it could've had an ending that packed a lot more punch than it did.

Fantastic movie, though not for the faint of heart. Deals with some pretty heavy. dark subjects but inserts plenty of laughs & some hope of redemption to balance the darkness. The cast is packed with brilliant character actors. Frances McDormand is excellent as usual, able to make you laugh at her no-nonsense approach in one scene & the next scene break...

Really loved this movie. Great characters and thought-provoking storyline. Always enjoy a movie where I can laugh and cry.

Just as I expected from the man behind In Bruges. Engaging to the last minute, darkly comical with plenty of genuine heart-wrenching emotion. It's exactly what the title suggestions - different and memorable. Highly recommended!

Incredible performance by Frances McDormand – the blunt raw emotion of a mother whose life has been turned upside down. The power of vengeance through some dark themes with bursts of humour shining through to lighten the mood throughout. Incredible cast with incredibly endearing characters. A++
