In Bruges

Brendan Gleeson and Colin Farrell play hitmen hiding out in Bruges after a job. It's funny, it's dark and foul-mouthed.

Definitely not one for the faint-hearted, and deserves it's 18 certificate. But damn, it's a good film.

I've not seen Colin Farrell act before. I've seen him in light fluff like SWAT, Miami Vice and Ballykissangel, but this put him in a new light for me. Brendan Gleeson is glorious as fellow Irish hitman Ken, Ralph Fiennes hams it up beautifully and Clémence Poésy is just beautiful.

I give it nine Irish hitmen out of ten.

This is one of my all time favorite movies, no lie. Have you seen MacDonagh's plays?

I'm not sure I've ever come across any of his stuff before.
