Watched In Bruges twice in two days and I loved it both times!
I love British humour! Understated, caustic and stinging.
It's a dark, completely mental and hilarious movie with a bit of blood, gore and expletives thrown into the mix. Brilliant!
Two hit-men. One gay, the other with the brain of a 5-year-old. The gang leader, Harry, who calls his wife "an inanimate fuckin' object", a Russian gun-runner, Yuri, who calls dum-dums dim-dims, a racist midget (the same one from Death at a Funeral!!!) on ketamine... the list is endless.
The beauty of the movie is that it comes across as idiotic. But beneath the surface, there is a lot of serious thought, wit and darkness.
Please do watch! Blood, gore and expletives notwithstanding. DO NOT miss the last few dialogues of the movie!
P.S. There was this stupid teeny-bopper who actually cried at the end of the movie! The world never ceases to amaze.
