Movies Watched, November 2017

Still from “ Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”

The prospect of watching the truly magnificent Frances McDormand take no prisoners in a revenge drama was the only thing that got me out to the theaters last month. There’s a lot of that in Martin McDonagh’s “Three Billboards in Ebbing, Missouri,” and it’s a treat. Unfortunately it’s not enough to sustain this movie that really has no idea where to take its premise and resorts to maudlinism more often than you’d expect. Thumbs down.

Otherwise, November was a decent month for watching movies. Here are all twenty-two that I managed to squeeze in.

If you’re interested, here is what I watched in October, in September, in August, in July, in June, in May, in April, in March, in February and in January, as well as my full list of everything I watched in 2016. You can also follow along with my film diary over at
