Like a fable about the dark side of human beings but told with humor and great acting. I loved this movie.
One always like happy endings but this is a great portrayal of the unique character of some Irish people
Starts out as a charming period piece, then turns into a bloody, disturbing horror of a film. Not reccomended.
The Emperor has no clothes, common sense, logic or sympathy for any characters except for the animals. Pretentious, deliberately depressive, a purposeless "arthouse", gore fest that left this viewer wanting a story that at least made sense. The Irish scenery deserved better too comparing a similar setting to Ryan's Daughter which gave us a riveting, emotional stirring drama from start to finish. Banshees is at best silly, worthless and at it's worst an example of the paucity of great small independent films in 2022. Even the Irish Coast, great leading men couldn't save it from itself.
Colin Farrell was outstanding as the Irish Simpleton. The movie is a parable for the Irish civil war but also explores the lack of depth in male friendships. It’s original and worth seeing.
A shocking portrayal of the reality of isolation and self absorption. Beautiful scenery, Great acting. Profoundly disturbing.
Hmmm….hard to rate this one. Excellent acting, some funny parts, but also dark and heartbreaking. I wouldn’t recommend it for a date night or a light night out, but that certainly doesn’t mean it’s not worth watching.
I've never seen anything quite like this...powerful
Great Story-Deep Layers -Soulful.
Love watching Brendan Gleeson and Colin Farrell together in another movie. Some dark and heartbreaking parts, but I also heard the voices of my family through some of the conversations, those made me laugh. I do love that country and the Irish people. Spectacular scenery.
takes me back to the old country A harsh time to live
friends are everything
take me back to simpler times
good story line
Emotional, dark, and smart. Lowest common denominator need not apply.
Don’t even waste your time
