"It has been months since Mildred's daughter was murdered. The trail has gone cold and the cops have no leads. So Mildred takes matters into her own hands, renting a trio of dilapidated billboards as a means of shaming the police chief to action. She is an angel of vengeance at loggerheads with the world. What is most impressive about the film is its freewheeling nature, its bottle-rocket sensibility; its awareness that people can turn 180 degrees on a dime. It sets forth as a modern-day western, complete with mariachi music and a crossfire of hard stares across sleepy Main Street. Then it zigs left to sketch a comic small-town portrait, zags right to become a roguish picaresque." (The Guardian)
