Most movies are terrible at showcasing male friendships unless they are between cops, criminals, or superheroes. So this one is refreshing in how it illustrates the depressing end of a friendship and toxic masculinity. Martin McDonagh is gifted with dialogue, although at times the heavy talking and Irish accents makes it feel more like a play and less like cinema. Still it holds up as a darkly tragic comedy with character choices that will haunt you. And Colin Farrell is amazing. Recommended.

Pretends to seriousness when it’s just maudlin to its core. This is “adult” filmmaking in the age of Avengers movies: no subtlety, nothing left unstated or mysterious. Gleeson is reduced to waving his bloody stumps like some ghoul out of Harry Potter or like the meat-of-the-week in Game of Thrones. Nothing like Béla Tarr. Visually, it’s a tissue of clichés… it should be forbidden to shoot movies in Ireland. Don’t even get me started on the sexy cannibal donkeys.

Oddly similar to his brother's Calvary (2014) because of the same dark humor, being centered around the exact same themes, and probably due to presence of Gleeson, so much so that it feels like I'm watching the same movie, and yet the story is still original and much more accessible. Both are a "McDonagh's masterpiece".

Civil war is feckin’ shite, so. And if that’s not the point of this film, I suppose I just don’t have this sort of men in my life to relate it back to - once the film turns from slow rural comedy to utter, preventable tragedy, its characters likewise transform from charming bumpkins to caricatures of concept. Terrifically performed and never boring, but too unreal and (dare I say?) unnecessarily cruel. May yet stick with me and improve in recollection.

Men fear, perhaps more than anything, their own futility, and Inisherin is a landscape built to heighten it: nothing to do but gossip and milk cows and drink a pint and listen to a war off in the distance where at least they’re contributing. The stripped simplicity in every aspect of the film elevates the characters to people flailing at purpose. The preacher here may be yelling fuck out of the confessional but I’m reminded of Ecclestiasties: For all is Vanity, and chasing after the wind.

TIFF 22: McDonagh starts with a hilariously simple narrative and slowly unveils its insidious power through to a devastatingly equalizing finale. Banshees' true drama exists in the conceptual, the hidden inner turmoil of the characters. In this way it feels almost literary, dealing with human yearning, suffering, irrationality through a series of outbursts and fallout. Easily my favourite thing I've seen this year.

Definitely one of my favorites from 2022. McDonagh never misses. His scripts are always darkly hilarious or sharp or both, and this is one of his best yet. I for one was fine with the ending, and it legitimately got me thinking about my own friendships and life. Not rethinking, just thinking. It’s a much deeper, thought-provoking film than I expected. Farrell is excellent, but Condon was phenomenal. Gleeson and Keoghan were very amusing though. Expertly shot and paced. I felt like I was there.

Manages to get the balance of tragedy and jet-black humor right, largely on the strength of the lead performances; Gleeson, Farrell, Condon and Keoghan are excellent here. Simple, efficient, but with a lot to say about the Irish Civil War and masculinity itself. Definitely worth seeing.

I felt a Bela-Tarr-esque emotion watching The Banshees of Inishering where McDonagh weaves a sweater of nothing through Gleeson and Farell. Very touching, very humane. Relaying Cansu's comment: "You can give an Oscar even to Farrell's eyebrows."

I really like this film and I suspect I will grow to like it even more on repeat viewing. Farrell and Gleason are as good a pair here as they were in "In Bruges", yet they couldn't be more different. Kerry Condon steals the movie out from under them as Farrell's smarter sister (She has some wonderful scenes that really contrast male and female perspectives on life.) Barry Keoghan steals more scenes as a funny little weirdo.

Brendan Gleeson tries giving the Irish Goodbye to a whole friendship, even though he's not going anywhere. Think 'Planes, Trains, and Automobiles' but the pathos is all inverted. Directing, editing, and acting all convey a mastery of tone and timing, and the beautiful landscape is fully utilized. It looks fantastic, it may be the best Ireland = Green Color Palette shtick I've ever seen.

The microcosmic feud between two men of the island of Inisherin serves as a metaphor for the Irish Civil War: Two men, former best-friends, now feuding for unclear reasons, trapped in an escalating cycle of violence and retribution and surrounded by an abusive police force and an apathetic church. McDonagh takes the black comedy of "In Bruges" and the subtext and pathos of "Three Billboards" and combines them with socio-historical commentary to make his best and most meaningful film yet.

2022's Everything Everywhere All at Once is about a woman accessing her other selves across the multiverse to do battle with/make amends with her daughter. 2022's Avatar: The Way of Water takes place on an alien world with mind blowing visual effects. 2022's All Quiet on the Western Front depicts the horrors of World War I from a young soldiers perspective. The Banshees of Inisherin is about a guy who doesn't want to be friends anymore. I haven't been this excited about a premise in a long time.

Great flick, very funny but with a matte black vibe throughout. Really cool to see the negative side of rural life in Ireland and the islands which in wide release films always seem to be romanticised. Fantastic performances from everyone but Kerry Condon and Barry Keoghan steal the show (even though I think Farrell is doing some career best work in a subtle way.) Sail, don't run to your nearest showing!

This is an incredible display of acting from the core 4 (Gleeson, Farrell, Condon and Keoghan). Gleeson and Farrell together are awesome. Writing handles seriousness well, and it doesn't shove punchlines at you, it slowly unveils them. Lines that don't seem funny are funny in context. Trailers don't do this justice. Takes a simple idea and makes it compelling. Brilliant directing too: good marriage with somber music, scenic shots, wonderful framing, artsy but not pretentiously so.

Wholly immersive thanks to the beautiful photography, excellent dialogues and a cast of memorable, perfectly chosen faces helmed by the great duo of Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson, it's perhaps McDonagh's most antithetical film: the first half is surprisingly hilarious to the point of bordering on farce, while the second is considerably grimmer as the characters are driven to extremes that work symbolically as portrayals of their worldview and relationship but contextually seem far-fetched.

The film resists an easy read but invites viewers to savor the details of both its central relationship and of the characters around Colm and Pádraic, like Dominic, an abused, dull-witted boy who becomes Pádraic’s hanger-on, and Siobhán, Pádraic’s well-read sister, who comes to suspect there’s no future for her on Inisherin. This possibility seems never to have occurred to Colm and Pádraic even as their countrymen kill each other heading into a tomorrow that may have no room for either of them.

A dull, period buddy-comedy that dissolves into a body horror jumpscare mystery. Inherently TBoI is a value debate between intelligence and empathy. Not mutually exclusive, but the empathic character here (Farrell) is as dull as dishwater. The movie tries to argue that empathy and kindness are more important than intellect or wittiness. I know I'm not perhaps supposed to side with Gleeson who's more willing to mutilate himself than to endure boring people - but I absolutely do.

I could talk about how much this differed from the way Mcdonagh normally intersects bitterness and violence. The cynicism not being as winking. The violence being a far distant after thought. But I’ll leave it with an abridged Cassavetes quote. “there is no communication between people. Instead it’s long-winded stories or hostile bits, or laughter. But nobody’s really laughing. It’s more an hysterical, joyless kind of sound. Translation: ‘I am here and I don’t know why.”

A quirky short film-like premise gets expertly expanded under vast Irish sky, casually meandering like a stroll down to the shore and back up to the pub into the territories of pure drama and absurdist dark comedy, respectively. What is a friendship? What is a life well-lived? "How's the despair?" These questions are bandied about in a snappy, smart script (Dominic's tragic arc felt disconnected though), perfectly acted out. Siobahn's a perfect third character ("You're *all* fucking boring!").

Some guy wants to stay friends and his friend doesn't, and goes to extreme lengths to clarify this. Everyone is charmless and the script is tedious, platitudinal, and full of awkward, flat jokes. It's not even the nagging, unsolved mystery of what the characters actually want and why, but worse: McDonagh's inability to make the answer matter. This isn't quite as terrible as Three Billboards, but that's really not saying much.

A colourful, masterfully-told tale of two men in the dying days of their friendship. Uncomfortably relatable. I believe we have all been Colm at one time or another - desperate to grow beyond the straightjacket of what has been comfortable and normal. We've probably all been Padraic, too - a "this is life" type who thrives in that comfort and stillness, barely wanting for anything more. Gleeson and Farrell are splendid, and very few directors could hope to tell this story like Martin McDonagh.

What do you do when the ginger you thought was your best friend stops talking to you out of the blue? No, please, not that! This is a brilliant film that needles the line between comedy and tragedy perfectly - I cried like 5 times only to laugh 3 seconds later. Banshees is about loneliness, pain, ACAB, really cute small donkeys and also the civil war in Northern Ireland (but I don't know enough history to get the context). Nobody better mess with Siobhan, like ever!

Sometimes I'm too dumb to "get" a film, but I can still enjoy it on the surface level. Here, I was too dumb to get it and the surface level also didn't really work for me as a story. The humor, photography, and some strong performances were enough to make this still decent, but I think I need to read about this to understand it.

You can come out of a movie and think "That was awesome, do you fancy a KFC?", or if it is a Lynchian film, "What the f*** was that about, did you understand it?" .. then there is the type of film which resonates so deeply, where you are emotionally invested on so many levels, where everything is so brilliantly cast, scripted, acted and filmed that it stays with you in every waking moment. I love this film, the lead actors and the sense of getting old, and thinking "have I 'achieved' anything?"

More enjoyable than the others I’ve seen of his. Less smarmy and cynical in a boring and violent way. One of the funniest movies of the year. And piercing, not really in its critiques of male friendships, but with the struggle a lot of people have within themselves. In Tree of Life voiceover voice: being a pretentious douche, being a carefree philistine, always you wrestle inside of me.

I found the writing trite and reductive. A bit like being hit with a stout piece of metaphorical blackthorn. But I applaud all the actors for doing their very best. And I was particularly impressed by the Costume Knitter - well done, you, Pádraic's jumpers are brilliant. (And thanks to the New York Times, I now know her name: Mrs. Delia Barry)

A look into loneliness, depression and fulfillment. Farrell's character is the only truly happy and content person on the island, the only one actually living the proper Ecclesiastes life filled with joy. Then loneliness, the film's main hero, comes in the equation, people succumb to it and it devours everything with its selfish nihilistic pride. Relationships are destroyed and the island's community is torn apart. The seemingly dull Pádraic proves to be the only one with integrity. /c Vlaykova

Banshees is at its weakest when it tries too hard to be an absurdist comedy, but at its best when it lets breathing room for Gleeson and especially Colin Farrell to do his thing by acting the subtext. i'm surprised i actually like a movie done by the guy who made the awful Billboards in Missouri- maybe he's more in his oils when the setting is something he's familiar with.

Strong performances from Farrell & Gleeson make McDonagh's film an engaging watch despite its sluggish pace. The Civil War analogy is made apparent by the end, though not laboured throughout, especially if it's not on your mind going in. The decaying friendship is handled well with both leads coming across as flawed; both stubborn, both right from their point-of-view, both needlessly escalating things. The humour is alright, and I can't say I want to rewatch it, but it remains a very good film.

Futility soon becomes a driving force to make sure all things connected to our turmoil have a purpose or a certain intensity of emotion. With that, the "nice" and "dull" periods of life start to become more frequent with death approaching as though a banshee exists with warning. Well written and worth rewatching.

An extremely well made film with fantastic performances (Farrell and Keoghan in particular) but I just found it an utterly depressing experience.

A film so awful in so many ways I find it hard to cram them all into a short review. Suffice to say this is a contrived abonimation that prostitutes rural Ireland in the bleakest most pointless of enterprises. Even the audio editing was amateurish before we even get to plot, accent, linguistic historicity, cliche, and the total bastardisation of anything of value whatsoever. Oscars? Oscar the grouch has more artistic probity.

This is clearly well made with strong performances, beautiful cinematography, and good dialogue. It's just the premise feels unimportant and pointless. The first half kind of drags.

Though, I want to reiterate that the film is very well made, so if you are at all interested go check it out. You might get more out of it than I did.

The movie is weird and that's what makes it interesting to watch too. It keeps you guessing how the movie is going to end and it is the end which is unfortunately open and non-satisfying.

Que c'est bon de voir du cinéma. Pas l'un de ces bêtes spectacles qui vous lave le cerveau à coup de fusil à pompe dans le cerveau. L'art de créer un monde atypique et attachant, avec des personnages brutaux, sales, gentils et méchants. Comme son précédent film, sans réussir à atteindre la même cadence, ni la même force, c'est n'empêche une excellente alternative où Colin Farrell, Barry Keoghan et Kerry Condon explosent tout sur leur passage.

There's a timeless quality to it; naturally partly due to period setting, but also the story itself. Apart from the gorier shots, It could have been done decades ago. The script provides clever details, surprises, and it's surprisingly funny. Farrell and Gleeson were excellent in their roles and it was a joy to see them re-team after "In Bruges". Condon and Keoghan were also very good in their smaller roles. Maybe not quite my favorite McDonagh film, but no doubt one that I will return to.

I have such residual affection for this pairing of actors due to McDonagh's 'In Bruges' that it is difficult to immediately determine whether the film itself is great or merely very good, but I have been thinking about it daily since I watched it, so I expect it to only rise in my estimation over time.

It's wonderful that this movie has been embraced so enthusiastically by many different audiences, despite being very offbeat and at times macabre and depressing.

Masterfully made film. If it had kept the pace of the first two acts, would've been a masterpiece. Still very good though, the struggles of the main characters, and the acting is on a very very high level, the pacing, editing and everything is just perfect. It's just the last act that drags a little and that's what prevented an 80, but still amazing.

A peculiar story with great scenes and great acting. It's that kind of movie where you will remember the characters and not the plot. The film wants to talk about the futility of life, but it gets lost a bit following the premise of the story instead pursuing for a meaningful conclusion. Some parallels with the irish civil war, but always in the background. Not really groundbreaking, all in all.

Sweet and sour visual beauty of a story. Modern tale about man to man friendship, ageing, loneliness. Sometimes delivery slips out of hand ;)

It might not have been as brilliant as Three Billboards, but it still was an amazing cinematic experience. Not a single main character felt misused or neglected, but Condon's character and performance were particularly stellar. This was one of the very few films to which I felt a deep personal connection, likely because I am currently going through a Colm phase with one of my own friends.

2 deli 1 araya gelmemeliydik. Köyde hem komşu, hem de dost arkadaş kardeş kanka olan 2 erkeğin hikayesi. Sanatçı olan arkadaş, senden sıkıldım beni rahat bırak deyip arkadaşını kovuyor. Bu arada, yalnız kalıp, şarkılar üretmeye başlıyor. Üzülen arkadaş da, bunun nedenini ve kırma kalbimi deyip üstüne üstüne gidiyor. Arada diğer karakterlerin ruh halleri ve köyün sıkıcılığı da iyi anlatılmış. Hayvan sevgisi de olan film. Filmin sonunda, içim yanıyor. Köpek bana bir şey yapmadı ki? Niye öldüreyim?

Really just such a sad, tragic, and funny movie. Loved how it looked, too, with the beautiful Irish landscape that only added to the forlorn feel of the quiet chaos the two former friends descend into. Such great performances from all of the cast. I always liked how Martin McDonagh writes side characters, giving them a voice of their own in the story. Also, animals were integral in this movie. Their silent support can also mean the world to a person.
