Have any of you seen the movie “In Bruges”? While there exists strong, bloody violence and pervasive language (and thus is intended for certain audiences) the themes of the film make it worthy of attention, and the quality of film is top notch.
Here’s a link to a little write-up of mine about the movie “In Bruges”: Review and Reaction.
I think “In Bruges” is brilliantly humorous, at times, and deadly serious at other times, and I think writer and director Martin McDonagh does a good job of navigating between these tendencies. I would consider my review and reaction as less of a specific engagement with the themes of the film (as I don’t want to reveal significant plot), and more of a bit of an Introduction to anticipate your experience. I find the characters Ray, Ken and Harry as making for an interesting study, especially when cast against larger concepts of hell, purgatory and heaven, and the direction each seems headed. But what do you think?
