Maybe that's what hell is, the entire rest of eternity spent IN fucking BRUGES.

I usually find Colin Farrell obnoxious, pompous, and acting horribly, but to my great surprise, he was simply hysterical in Martin McDonah's In Bruges. Paired with Brendan Gleeson (who appeared in the mind blowing, heart-wrenching short Six Shooter and in the Harry Potter films), Farrell creates the comic side to a dark, unsettling story of two hit men.

In Bruges follows these the men as their stuck in Bruges (a boring medieval city in Belgium) awaiting orders from their boss. The film's whimiscal and funny side is contrasted with the deep human examinations of death and redemption...and guns and murder. Simply sumptuous. PS: Ralph Finnes also makes an appearance, the icing on the cake.
