Really eye opening, engaging film, though did not fully love the ending. Perhaps it just takes a bit to sink in. Either way, Colin Farrell is just great in this.

Somehow manages to be depressing and hilarious at the same time

As beautiful as this movie is, along with an amazing cast, I was not moved.

Bleak, drab, depressing. Strangely, makes me understand and feel at peace in this world, currently.

An excellent film, but extremely dark and disturbing. Superb cast, writing, production, but so dark. Gotta do some pondering on this one.

Perfectly casted actors! Great performances and original story. Love the drama and dark comedy. I would've hoped for the trailer to not offer SO MUCH of the story and left more to surprise. It's so impressive how the filmmaker is able to have the audience go from laugh to shock and back in such a close amount of time. Lol. Like scene to scene. Just loved watching these actors bring out their best!

Black comedy? No! Sick, twisted sadistic "humor". Disappointing.

The movie is such a rich, emotionally detailed text that not sticking the landing is only a minor mark against it.

What animates The Banshees of Inisherin and saves it from stiffness is the clout of the performances. Within the oxlike Colm, thanks to Gleeson, we glimpse a ruminative despair, and Farrell adds Pádraic to his gallery of heroes so hapless that they forfeit all claim to the heroic. The movie, however, belongs to Condon.

Colin Farrell plumbs emotional and comedic depths in Martin McDonagh’s witty and wistful period drama, with Brendan Gleeson and Barry Keoghan on solid supporting duty. Set against the stunning vistas of Ireland, The Banshees of Inisherin tells an effective and corrosive tale of friendship.
