The Banshees of Inisherin

The Banshees of Inisherin is a dark somewhat witty story, that is well acted even though it dragged during the journey!!!

Real Rating:

3.5 Fingers

What I Like:

-The acting makes this film watchable, Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson really brought out an authentic performance that was believable
-The cinematography was tremendous, the landscape they were in looked nice, even though the color pallet is dark, it still brought the beauty of the area it took place

The So So:

-The story started out as a black comedy of sorts, and it was some witty dialogue, but it got darker and darker, and it is not for the faint of heart, it got depressing even for me
-The Irish accents can take a little bit to get used to understand, but once you get used to it, you’re fine

What I Didn’t Like:

-It can drag a little bit, there can only be so much seeing people walk to cliffs, oceans, and pubs with folk Irish music playing

Overall:

It is a dark comedy of sorts that gets darker and darker. Maybe even too dark for some people. However, the acting, the wittiness, and cinematography keeps the interest level afloat and seeing how it goes down. Despite the slow mute points, it can be a spectacle to watch, and seeing Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson at its best. An Irish good time for sure!!!
