In Bruges Reviews
The shenanigans are balanced out by some truly dark backstory and plot points that nonetheless play together into an engaging storyline. Very much a character study, though, if you aren't really interested in the two main characters then you probably will be bored by the halfway point.
It's twisted, and dark, and it's incredible. I don't know how this film came to be so underrated, but on the other hand, I'm not even sure how this film had an American release, so I don't know, maybe I shouldn't be surprised? But thanks to this, and Seven Psychopaths, I have full confidence in Martin Mcdonagh to write and direct his way to the top in black comedy filmmaking. Can't wait for whatever comes next.
