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…
Consistently funny and crucially held together, tonally, by performances from Colin Farrell and Ralph Fiennes in the final third. In Bruges' comedy and dark thriller elements work not in tangent, but in harmony with one another.
La película es entretenida, con buenas interpretaciones, y todo en la pintoresca ciudad de Brujas.
Por otro lado el argumento es bastante simple y hay algunas giros en la trama que son un sinsentido. Además me da la sensación de que el humor negro fue metido con calzador. A veces absurdo.
Note to self:
Start using "YOU'RE AN INANIMATE FUCKING OBJECT!" in casual conversation (more often).
The best dialogue in a film in the last 10 years make this a top 50 pick for me. All the foreshadowing that takes place, which becomes more obvious with every watch, really tighten the story. Top that off with the fantastic performances from all the cast and it makes this a must watch.
In Bruges! Now this is my second watch of the dark comedy starring Collin Ferrell where he plays a hitman who has to go and hide out in a shit hole town by the name of Bruge... its in Belgium. With him Brendan Gleeson who is his sort of mentor hitman who was with him on the hit that went wrong and the whole reason for why Collin is having just a bad time in shitty Bruge. Its not all bad, In Bruge he finds a beautiful girl played Clemence Poesy, A Midget, pardon me, Dwarf actor who likes hookers and cocaine.
Now i actually love this film on my first watch i actually knew nothing about it i didn't…
The first half hour was well on it's way to a bad review, nothing but awkward scenes and taking heads with thick accents; but then, I finished the movie, and now I have to admit that its pretty dang clever. The film feels very much like a play, with a small cast of characters whose lives are intertwined, long takes, and basically one location. If you're into quirky, European, dark comedy with loads of unnecessary language (or if you just like the cast of Harry Potter) this is your movie.
Martin Mcdonagh is one of my favourite modern writer/directors.
His films are engaging, dark, comical; and at their heart, full with emotional depth. Only having two feature films under his belt (In Bruges and Seven Psychopaths) one might think I am a tad premature on the praise for this guy. However I find the films to be so rich and original that I feel so compelled to give my acclaim.
This was the first of his films I saw, first back in 2008 and I was immediately in love with everything this film had to offer. Smart writing, genuinely funny dialogue and flowing, well paced scenes with a strong tone for morality and principals. The back and forth between Ray…
Fantastic, and pretty funny.
Every line of dialogue in this movie is a quotable gem. Never have I seen a movie that has so many random international characters in supposedly the sleepy Belgium town.
And so many ideas crammed into this film and yet doesn't end up being a muddled mess. From honor, guilt, with a touch of racism. Who can forget the the whites vs blacks war.
A great study of character and portrayed by a great cast.
