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