In Bruges

In Bruges ★★★★½

McDonagh never fails to surprise me. He really hit the nail on the head here, and it sustains the note a bit better than the astonishing but messy Three Billboards. Not sure I love the way they use Jimmy Prentice, and once again the dialogue's gratuity can seem a tad well... gratuitous, but a pretty phenomenal dark comedy nonetheless with his signature thematic heft and central trio of fantastic performances (Gleeson is particularly stunning).

"Harry... it's an inanimate object."

"You're an inanimate fucking object!"
