One of my favorite movies is Adaptation, in no small part because of the way it cleverly refers to itself. It’s a movie about a movie (actually it’s a movie about a movie about a book). If that doesn’t make sense, try watching it and you’ll see what I mean.
We’re all going to die someday, we just don’t know when and how.
If I had to categorize “In Bruges”, I’d go with Thriller/Travelogue, which is not a very crowded field. It’s the story of two career hit men who go on a little vacation, ostensibly to lay low after a recent crime spree. But as you might guess, there’s more to this trip than meets the eye.
Good documentaries make you feel something. This film will make you feel angry. Very angry.
I’m a sucker for offbeat, quirky documentaries. My favorites have a little dose of crazy – either in the characters or the story or both. For me, the craziness is what makes it human and compelling.
