Ray and Ken, two hit men, are in Bruges, Belgium, waiting for their next mission. While they are there they have time to think and discuss their previous assignment. When the mission is revealed to Ken, it is not what he expected.
What a conversation between Harry and Ken would sound like if they were talking about some lame person who doesn't like this movie:
Harry: So he's having a really nice time watching In Bruges?
Ken: Well, I'm having a really nice time watching In Bruges. I'm not sure it's really his cup of tea.
Harry: (Stunned silence) What?
Ken: You know... I'm not sure it's really his thing.
Harry: What do you mean it's not really his thing? What's that supposed to mean? It's not really his thing... What the fuck is that supposed to mean?
Ken: Nothing, Harry.
Harry: But it's a masterpiece, isn't it? How can a masterpiece not be somebody's fucking thing? The brilliant fucking dialogue, the perfect fucking casting, the wonderful fucking blend of the most hilarious dark humor with spine-tingling drama and character development... how can that not be somebody's fucking thing? How can that be?
The only film where you will witness Madeye Moody and Voldemort sit in a bar and call each other cunts.
Pure fucking brilliance. Everything fucking works. Fucking humour, fucking emotions, fucking Ralph fucking Fiennes is the fucking best fucking ever.
"You're an inanimate fuckin' object!"
I cannot get over that line. It's so fucking good.
Martin McDonagh’s debut feature is a profane black comedy about those two perennial Catholic obsessions - guilt and sin. Two foul-mouthed Irish hitmen are sent to Bruges following a botched job and ordered to wait there until they receive further instructions. The film’s chief success comes in this brilliantly realised central pairing that is a perfect marriage between script and performance.
Colin Farrell plays the grief stricken, Ray - a cocksure and frequently inappropriate Jack the lad who made a grave mistake during his one and only hit. Ray, like practically every other character that finds themselves stuck in Bruges, isn’t particularly nice yet his natural Irish charm and sense of morality (albeit a warped one) make him an interesting,…
2 things will happen after you watch this movie:
1: You will want to go to Bruges and see the swans and the medieval shit
2: Your urge to call people "fookin coonts" will dramatically rise.
If you haven't seen this dark comedy criminal masterpiece yet, I would advise you to close this review and try to get on that as soon as possible. I watched an unhealthy amount of movies today, but quotes from this one keep floating through my brain. I saw this movie a couple years ago and though it was alright. I think it's one of those movies that will keep getting better and better every time I watch it. Hey, not every film clicks with…
"How was your date?"
"My date involved two instances of extreme violence, one instance of her hand on my cock and my finger up her thing which lasted all too briefly, one instance of me stealing five grams of very high quality cocaine and one instance of me blinding a puffy little skinhead. So all and all, my evening pretty much evened out."
In some ways, this is the film Guy Ritchie has been trying to make his entire career. It's focused where Guy is vague and delicate where Guy uses an iron glove. He didn't make it, though. And I'm guessing he's a little upset about that.
"You two are weird. Would you like some cocaine?"
The dialogue is…
I've seen this movie a few times, and every time I do I'm impressed by how tightly and concisely this story is told. The comedy and tragedy perfectly counter-balance each other, making it one of the funniest and most despairing movies I've seen in a while, without either aspect ever becoming tiring or over-bearing.
It's also one of the more beautifully shot movies of the past decade or so, with the "best preserved medieval towns in Europe" serving as the perfect backdrop for this tale of guilt and redemption. Finally, it one-ups "A Touch of Evil," and ends with an homage-within-a-homage to "Don't Look Now." This is one of my favorite movies.
Adiviné quién era el director de la peli durante el visionado. Lo adiviné por puro deja vú chungo de lo que sentí viendo "7 Psicópatas".
Que en los 90 salieran de debajo de las piedras copycats de Tarantino era perdonable. Seguir en 2008 con este rollo de personajes pseudomolones recitando dialogos "clever" con muchos tacos, drogándose mientras alardean en voz alta sobre lo que se están metiendo ( hay que epatar con el alternapijo universitario).... como que no.
Lo jodido es que la misma historia despojada de esos "rasgos de estilo" podría funcionar, pero así no.
Again, finding myself off the bandwagon for this one. I just wasn't as smitten with the black-comedy-but-it's-low-brow! One very predictable plot twist wrapped up in gay/black/midget jokes set in a beautiful medieval Belgian city with a nice cast.
Esta es otra de esas películas que veo rodando mucho por ahí y que ya decidí verla, y bueno el resultado ha sido que me ha gustado pero no tanto como pensaba y es que he visto que muchos la consideran como una de las mejores comedias, pero pero mí esto es más drama que comedia, sobretodo después que aparece Ralph Fiennes, que si hubiese sido por mí ni lo mostraba y lo dejaba detrás del teléfono como venía funcionando.
Si algo me ha gustado muchísimo de esta película ha sido la actuación de Colin Farrell, casi que todo el excelente manejo del humor negro cae sobre sus hombros y es lo que será memorable para mí. A pesar de…
What a nice little masterpiece. Black humor mixed with deep emotions. The film gets better everytime you see it.
It had some funny lines but most of the time the humor was too dark, even for me.
any film that can make me laugh out loud and then make me come very close to crying within five minutes deserves at least four stars tbh
