‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’ (2017), Written by Martin McDonagh - With Amber Varnado!

Best Original Podcast

Eight podcasts episodes in one month? And still no Amber Varnado as a guest? How come, Dakota Lovins? Well, that changes today! I was joined by Amber, a notorious ‘Three Billboards’ defender, and the two of us LITERALLY fought one another about this movie. Punches were thrown, people were defenestrated, and podcast studios were firebombed—but who emerged victorious? Was Amber able to convince me that ‘Three Billboards’ is actually good? Or did my astute observations about the flaws of the movie (i.e., racist cop bad) change her perception? Find out on this week’s episode of Best Original Podcast! 4 films down, 391 go.

In Bruges (Directed by Martin McDonagh) - Don't Watch this One with Your Mom

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) - Screenplay by Martin McDonagh

The 21st Rewrite

In this episode, William and Alan discuss Martin McDonagh's powerful exploration of anger, blame and the drive for taking revenge. The inhabitants of a small rural town are brought into conflict as a result of a bereaved mother putting up three billboards directly attacking the police chief of failing to investigate her daughter's murder. Having read the full version of the screenplay we share some of the details of scenes that were taken out from the film, explore how McDonagh made the characterisation and dialogue so effective, and try to define precisely what we think this story is about. *** Want to comment, get news and join episode discussions?

#9 - Martin McDonagh - In Bruges (2008)

You Never Forget Your First

Are you looking for a delightful weekend break? May the pod crew suggest Bruges for you and your loved ones. Straight out of a fairytale, Bruges will offer idyllic views of castles, romantic streets to lose yourself in and an array of dif-YOU'RE AN ANIMATE FUCKING OBJECT.Sorry. You’re obviously not. You’re a living, breathing, clever soul for choosing to join us in our weekend break in Bruges. Because aside from having some lovely alcoves, its the setting of Martin McDonaghs debut film, In Bruges. It follows hitmen Ray and Ken, who have to await orders from their boss in Bruges, after a jobs gone wrong. As Ray so aptly puts it; “I'm suicidal, me mate tries to kill me, me gun gets nicked and we're still in fucking Bruges.” This is just one of many quotable lines from this movie, which, we warn, get quoted a lot in this episode. We also apologise in advance for the jealously you will no doubt harbour in hearing our perfect impersonations of accents. We deep dive into McDonagh, from his career as a successful playwright before transitioning to film, going from strength to strength, having had his latest film Three Billboards nominated for 7 Oscars. We also talk about his Oscar winning short film, Six Shooter, which if you haven’t seen, is a much watch. Link here.  We also have our short of the week, The Brain And You, written and directed by Paul Trillo. This one is a little political, so if that’s your thing, get involved.  So come get lost in the alcoves, see the views from the tower and have yourself a NORMAL PODCAST FOR NORMAL PEOPLE. If you don't get that, it might be time to give In Bruges a re-watch.  Happy listening.

#295 — Joe Wright, Martin McDonagh

The Empire Film Podcast

This week's Empire Podcast sees us welcome two of our favourite directors into our podcompany. First up, Joe Wright — hands down one of our favourite English directors called Wright, and maybe even in the top two — talks to Nick de Semlyen about his latest movie, Darkest Hour, which sees Gary Oldman give a barnstorming performance as Winston Churchill, and the career that might have been, as an illusionist. Now that's magic.Then Chris Hewitt sits down for a chat with Martin McDonagh, the writer-director behind the caustic and challenging Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, and tries to pass McDonagh's test: do not ask a question that he's heard before. Will he succeed? Find out by listening. And full disclosure: because Chris is an idiot, he forgot to bring microphones to a podcast interview, which is why the sound levels may be a little askew on this one. But it's well worth a listen. Elsewhere, Chris is joined in the podbooth by Helen O'Hara and James Dyer, who discuss thi

Episode 71: Martin McDonagh On The Music Of 'Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri', 'In Bruges' & 'Seven Psychopaths'

Soundtracking with Edith Bowman

With his first two films In Bruges and Seven Psychopaths, Martin McDonagh made the transition from world famous playwright to high-class filmmaker seem deceptively straightforward. Such a shift is anything but, of course. But he continues the trend with his latest offering - the jet black comedy drama Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missourti. Hotly tipped for success this coming awards season, it tells the story of a woman in the eponymous town who lays down a challenge to local police to take greater action over the unsolved murder of her daughter. Among its many delights are barnstorming central performances from Frances McDormand, Sam Rockwell and Woody Harrelson. Three Billboards is scored by Carter Burwell, who has collaborated on all three of his feature films. Their partnership is a dream come true for Martin, who fell in love with his work on the Coen brothers' Blood Simple as a teenager ...
