• "Banshees of Inisherin" - No Spoilers

    From Irish Mike@21:1/5 to All on Fri Dec 23 16:41:25 2022
    Two things:
    First thing. I love Ireland.
    My family is from there, I've been
    going there for decades and I've traveled
    extensively in every Province and County.
    I love their music, literature, history and culture.

    "Banshees of Inisherin" is set on a (fictitious)
    island off the West Coast of Ireland in 1923.
    The setting is realistic, the scenery is beautiful
    and Brendan Gleeson and Colin Farrell are both
    excellent actors.

    Second thing: This is one of the dumbest plot lines
    I've ever seen! Silly, idiotic and ridiculous. I sat through
    it to the end but you'd have to pay me to watch it again!

    Now in all fairness, the movie won several artistic awards
    and I freely admit I ain't a very artistic guy. Possibly
    Mr. Pig and his artsy-fartsy friends found something in this
    film that escapes me. Entirely possible - but you be the judge.
