Nineteen minutes into the movie, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri spouted two anti-American lies within 15 seconds of each other. Who needs that?

"Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri — another movie I couldn’t watch"
Bookworm Room      

"I very seldom can sit through the movies Hollywood has made of late. Indeed, I think the last movies that I fully enjoyed were Darkest Hour and Paddington 2. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is just the latest in a long line of movies I consider unwatchable.
"When I sat down in front of our TiVo to watch HBO’s showing of Three Billboards, I had no preconceived notions about the movie. I hadn’t paid any attention whatsoever to it when it came out and knew nothing about the plot. I was vaguely aware that Frances McDormand won an Oscar for it, but I only knew that because she made some mindless #MeToo speech or something like that at the Awards ceremony."
. . . 
"For me, two big lies in 15 seconds — one that falsely savaged America while aggrandizing Cuban tyranny; and the other that falsely savaged Wyoming and America, while ignoring the victim’s terrible lifestyle choices — was too much. I could feel my blood pressure shoot up, and I headed upstairs for tea, chocolate, and some blogging. Life’s too short to waste on bad British/Hollywood propaganda. The only shame is that lots of Americans did watch the movie and that, while this 15 seconds of dishonest propaganda might have whipped by their conscious, it surely lodged in their subconscious. And that’s how people lose sight of truth."
