In Bruges Poster

Shoot First. Sightsee later.

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.
