Are you in hell... or in Bruges

Wow… that’s all I have right now, Wow. This film, the story of a pair of blue-collar types who happen to be hit men and are sent to Bruges to cool their heels after a hit gone wrong, is not what you would expect. It’s got an almost contemplative, reflective, and stillness that you wouldn’t expect in a film about hit men. Sure there’s violence, there’s drugs, and hookers, there are laughs, and a kinda riff on the Pulp Fiction buddy hit man flick. However, the real core of the film are the characters, you have Collin Ferrell and Brendan Gleason, having to share a room, and the film is really about their partnership. There is also a Belgian drug dealer, a poofy skinhead, a pregnant hotel owner, and of course their boss. There are lots of lingering shots of the city, and the cannel. There are moments of pure energy and anger, of fun mistakes, and observations about life. I really enjoyed just watching the film, and look forward to seeing it again.
