Carter was pipped in the Best Score category by our last guest on Soundtracking, Justin Hurwitz, but that takes nothing away from the excellence of his work on the project

This week we're screaming the praises of Martin McDonagh's “The Banshees of Inisherin”! Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson are perfectly cast (and dressed, in those sweaters!) as best friends navigating a sudden breakup that gets increasingly grim, morphing from Irish folklore to Greek tragedy by the end. Kerry Condon is our ring-side proxy for this battle as the Best Supporting Sister Who Stays, while also navigating her own internal battle over her future on Inisherin (and sporting a stunning yellow coat of her own). We have lots of feelings about dear Jenny the donkey, to say nothing of Colin Farrell's eyebrows, and a hell of a time pronouncing all of these Gaelic names.

In Bruges is a movie I've heard so much about and never had anyone say a bad word in its general direction. And yet despite that that I've still never found the time to see it.This week it's another double bill, basically because this is now a Colin Farell stan account * Part one of the double bill sees Dan and Sidey touch down In Bruges and talk about how endlessly quotable this movie is. Chemistry, performance, comedy, tragedy and violence. This movie has it all. We loved it, but Sidey still found a way to criticise it. What a miserable sod!* stan account is some term that young people use. I stumbled across it on TikTok and felt 1000 years old. We love to hear from our listeners! By which I mean we tolerate it.

What a fucking downer of a movie. On this episode of the Front Row Podcast, Dom and Gus look back on old friendships thanks to the Golden Globe Award-winning "comedy" The Banshees of Inisherin. Does the latest project from Martin McDonagh provide enough for casual viewers? Or do you need to be ready to get serious before jumping in? Find out here. Enjoy!
Laughably low in concept, Martin McDonagh's The Banshees of Inisherin is, on the surface, about a simple man living on a small Irish isle when his lifelong best friend abruptly and inexplicably decides he doesn't want to be friends with him anymore. From a writer-director who has yet to make a bad movie, McDonagh's fourth feature is, as expected, much deeper than its pretext.

A double feature to help kick our 3rd season to the curb! One's got "Oscar bait" written all over it, the other is ALREADY begging for an army of sequels. Hear the delight pour out of Luke & Corrye as they explore the beauty, comedy, and tragedy of The Banshees of Inisherin. Then it's off to a schmuck billionaire's island to solve some mysteries with Glass Onion. There was almost too much nuance and douchebaggery to keep up with in this one! PLUS: a sneak peak for what's in store for our movie slate in 2023!

Not often is there a film that comes around like 2017's THREE BILLBOARS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI. Some feel the movie is almost perfect. It was nominated for many awards, won a whole lot, and will probably be remembered more so than the films it competed against. Mildred Hayes (Frances McDormand) is a grieving mother. A year prior her daughter was raped and murdered and there has been no leads. Outside her town, she decides to rent three billboards calling out the local sheriff and his officers for their stalled investigation. The film is directed and written by Martin McDonagh in a career defining masterpiece. Starring Frances McDormand in a award winning performance, the movie also stars Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, Peter Dinklage, Abbie Cornish, and Samara Weaving in a large ensemble cast. Your co-hosts take a look at their latest picture to reminisce on and give their thoughts.

This week's Nose wants you to stop runnin' away like some fool of a moody school child. Could it be that the market for highbrow movies is drying up? Some of the numbers ain't great. Could it be that the golden age of streaming is coming to an end? Well, maybe. But it's not like we'll be starved for prestige TV next year. And: The Banshees of Inisherin is the fourth feature film written and directed by Martin McDonagh. It's nominated for eight Golden Globe Awards, including Best Picture — Comedy or Musical, Best Director, and Best Screenplay. It's the most nominations for any movie (or TV show, for that matter). The Banshees of Inisherin stars Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson, Kerry Condon, and Barry Keoghan.

For this final podcast of 2022, we are going to discuss "Amsterdam," at least a little, one last time. That's because this last episode of the year is going to focus on two other comedies that do work -- "Ticket to Paradise," and "The Banshees of Inisherin." What can we learn from them about why they succeed where that other film fails? What if we decided that an answer was in the clothing... or at the very least is divulged by the clothing?
This week we talk about Martin McDonagh's film about the complexities of friendship, family, community and creating art. Great performances across the board, with a beautiful setting utilizing natural light and a pitch-perfect score.
