Consensus: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri deftly balances black comedy against searing drama -- and draws unforgettable performances from its veteran cast along the way.

But while that is a rage that's exhilarating to witness, it's a rage that's not available to everyone. Just as not everyone in Ebbing can claim the protection of being considering "good," we still don't live in a world where everyone gets to be angry.

McDonagh works way too hard to inject nearly every scene with his patented solution of acid wit and dark-roast comedy... It's jarringly effective until it starts to feel like shtick, at which point it works only as a numbing agent.

Despite McDonagh's cinematic hyperbole, it's the strength of the performances from McDormand, Harrelson and Rockwell that keeps "Three Billboards" sturdily anchored in a compellingly rendered reality.

"Cathartic or livable" might as well be the Midwestern ethos; it's the land of displacement, or being between two poles, and Three Billboards is a rare movie to so perfectly capture how there's still beauty (and hope) in it.

Powerful acting and direction help to create the somber scene for Three Billboards. Wonderful dark comedy. Doesn't pull any punches.
