The Banshees of Inisherin isa 2022 tragicomedy film directed, written, and co-produced by Martin McDonagh. Starring Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson as two lifelong friends who find themselves at an impasse when one abruptly ends the relationship. The movie received mixed reviews from critics, with some praising McDonagh's sharp writing and the performances of Farrell and Gleeson, while others found the film to be overly dark and muddled in its tone. However, most agree that The Banshees of Inisherin follows their relationship to a dramatic breaking point and alarming consequences for both of them; Kerry Condon and Barry Keoghan also star. In my opinion is a unique and thought-provoking film that tackles serious themes with humor and heart. Farrell and Gleeson are both known for their excellent acting skills, and they don't disappoint in this movie. Their chemistry and banter make the film both hilarious and touching, and they bring depth and nuance to their characters. The story itself is a mixture of comedy and tragedy, and McDonagh navigates these tonal shifts with skill and confidence. The film deals with themes of grief, regret, and the complexity of human relationships, and it does so with both humor and pathos. Celebrated for its complex display of friendship, life on a remote island and depression at its peak. The Banshees of Inisherin is an unforgettable exploration of friendship, loyalty and the consequences of actions.

IN the second half:
"All Quiet on the Western Front" is a powerful and moving film that depicts the brutal realities of war through the eyes of a young German soldier named Paul Baumer (played by Felix Kammerer). Directed by Edward Berger, the film is an adaptation of Erich Maria Remarque's classic anti-war novel of the same name and has been nominated for several Oscars.
The film takes us through the harrowing journey of Baumer and his fellow soldiers as they are sent to fight on the frontlines of World War I. The horrors of war are shown in all their starkness, from the deafening sound of artillery and machine gun fire to the relentless physical and mental exhaustion of the soldiers. Berger's direction and cinematography capture the devastating impact of war on both soldiers and civilians alike, leaving the audience deeply affected.
Kammerer delivers a standout performance as Baumer, capturing the character's transformation from a naïve and enthusiastic recruit to a traumatized and disillusioned soldier. He portrays the physical and emotional toll of war with a rawness and intensity that is both moving and alarming.
"All Quiet on the Western Front" is a sobering reminder of the devastating human cost of war. It is a film that is both beautiful and harrowing, leaving a lasting impact on the viewer. With its powerful performances, skilled direction, and poignant message, it is a deserving Oscar nominee that is not to be missed. Find out more at https://beforeyougopodcast.com
