In Bruges ★★★½

Funny little thing; I’ve had the In Bruges theme saved on Spotify for over a year and have been listening to it consistently without having seen the movie. Cool seeing that bad boy in action!

I’ll be honest, first 30 minutes weren’t doing it for me. Didn’t find either leads that charming or funny, didn’t think it was doing anything terribly interesting. Thankfully McDonagh is amazing at subverting expectations and made the remainder of the film quite a ride. I think it’s a lot of fun and definitely see myself revisiting it again, but it felt like a movie that works really in the moment and has little to discuss once the credits roll. Am I just not being fun? Probably idk but it’s 2am I’m going to bed goodnight!
