Another film that has a firm and unshakable slot in my Top 10 movies. I can't remember what led me to watch this film originally as it never had a huge launch campaign, but the discovery of this movie was a real treat.
Because I'm recommending it, I need to add one caveat. If you're not a fan of the potty mouth, then I think that the number of expletives in this movie will more than muddy your ability to enjoy it. Don't get me wrong, this is not vulgar, crass swearing to offend, but it is swearing. Constant swearing. Every sentence swearing. Swearing in the middle of words swearing.
Ken and Ray are hitmen that need to lay low after a job and they have been sent to Bruges by their gangster boss Harry. All they need to do is to lie low and enjoy the city until word comes about what they should do next.
Their tourist activities show Bruges as the best and the worst city in Europe to visit.
Ken: Coming up?
Ray: What's up there?
Ken: The view.
Ray: The view of what? The view of down here? I can see that down here.
Ken: Ray, you are about the worst tourist in the whole world.
Ray: Ken, I grew up in Dublin. I love Dublin. If I grew up on a farm, and was retarded, Bruges might impress me but I didn't, so it doesn't.
This excellent movie, that falls firmly into the black comedy category, won Martin McDonagh a BAFTA Award for Best Original Screenplay.
