In Bruges (Martin McDonagh, 2007)
« on: 20 Apr 2008 - 20:12 »

I went to see this little gem today - Farrell hasn't been as good as seen here since he made his American breakthrough film, TIGERLAND and Brendan Gleeson is a revelation in his role; the pair play a couple of hitmen sent by their gangland boss (Ralph Fiennes, also great) to the eponymous Belgian town to lay low. Very simple set-up: Gleeson plays the older and wiser of the two, quite happy to roam the streets of the picturesque Medieval town, whereas Farrell playing up to a stereotype of the younger, easily bored fella that would rather go on the prowl for birds and get out of his mind on booze and illegal substances.

I shan’t say any more than that; to do so would give too much away. I will say that it’s brilliantly written and at times very, very funny.

I am no fan of Farrell but I love Bruges and would like to see how they use the setting in this film.

I'm no fan of Farrell, neither, but he's good in this, honest! The town looks great and plays a significant part in the story...
