In Bruges (2008)

Cover from: www.wallpaperez.net

A delightful yet tragic film featuring Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson, and Ralph Fiennes, directed by Martin McDonagh. I hadn't seen a trailer or read about this film prior to seeing it and I was surprised to have found the film so captivating given the relatively small area the film covers in its entirety. The attitudes the characters portray in the film are second to none, each of the main actors have surprising characteristics that you can't forget and grow to love.

I had heard a few good things about it which is what lead me to watch it, although the fact Colin Farrell was staring in it did help convince me that it was most likely worth seeing. The last film I saw him in was Crazy Heart I believe, which is another amazing film.

It's definitely a film worth seeing, that said it comes off as somewhat of a dark comedy, the plot is very interesting and it keeps you guessing. You have the feeling you know what will eventually happen, but are met with delightful and tragic surprises all along the way.

  8. I Loved this movie so much, and learned that Belgium was not a boring piss in a bucket, there's actually something to it...

    Hey PFMP, do you own a 5D II?

  9. Not sure what PFMP stands for :3

    But yes, I do own a 5D Mark II and I love it to death. I think I made a great choice and I got it right when they were released. Of course I'm still jealous of pros I know who carry around two of them and receive all their gear free from Canon... but yeah. lol

  16. So many movies like this never got seen. Most people overlook Ferrel as a brainless action actor, SWAT and Phone Booth. He never gets the praise he deserves.
