Martin McDonagh was of two minds when he visited Bruges. I feel the same way about his movie.
There were moments when I laughed out loud and felt great pathos. But the next moment I’d be bored out of my mind. It felt like a mish-mash of ideas but it never really meshed together. Colin Farrel was way over the top to the point that it clearly felt like a comedic performance. Ralph Fiennes was good as the “cunt”, Harry Waters, but again, so over the top that it’s kind of alienating.
I think this could have been a good movie, but it really should have been more clearly thought out.
