Mario’s review published on Letterboxd:
So I've decided to make my own 'A Favourite Film for each Year of my Life-List. As always this is just my personal opnion, I'm not saying these are the best movies, they are just my favourites. Also there are many movies I haven't seen yet, so this list could still change in the future.
I was really looking forward to rewatching my 2017 pick ever since I started this list. I already liked this one when I first saw it in theatres, but now I really loved it. Gets better and better every time I revisit it. Both the score and the soundtrack are brilliant (His Master's Voice... Chef's Kiss. Also has one of the greatest lines I've heard in a song recently). The cinematography is gorgeous (The window scene... another Chef's Kiss), the writing is superb, and I love the character depth. Everyone seems to be fighting their own demons. The performances are brilliant, very well deserved Oscars for Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell. The same goes for Woody Harrelson's nomination. Abbie Cornish, Lucas Hedges and Caleb Landry Jones were great as well. Also this should have won best picture. I can't think of a movie that combines drama and comedy better than this one. Seriously, this made me laugh while I was already crying, and that doesn't happen very often.
Thre Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri is the 10th drama, the 6th crime movie and the 2nd comedy on this list.
