Martin McDonagh says Sam Rockwell's character in '3 Billboards' was always an unredeemable asshole




Given all the controversy around how Sam Rockwell's character is perceived in “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” as somehow being redeemed at the end for getting some semblance of a conscious or some shit, director/writer Martin McDonagh says otherwise:

“I don’t think his character is redeemed at all – he starts off as a racist jerk. He’s the same pretty much at the end, but, by the end, he’s seen that he has to change. There is room for it, and he has, to a degree, seen the error of his ways, but in no way is he supposed to become some sort of redeemed hero of the piece.”

McDonagh also says the movie is supposed to be a fucking mess because it's a reflection of "a messy and difficult world."

Hmm, maybe Sam Rockwell needs a tag?
