On the Tenth Day of Christmas Sam’s movie recommendation for me was…

For the tenth day of our 12 Days of Christmas movie recommendations, Sam suggests “In Bruges”.

in brugesTHE STORY

Guilt-stricken after a job gone wrong, hit-man Ray and his partner await orders from their ruthless boss in Bruges, Belgium.

The movie stars Colin Farrell as Ray in his best dramatic performance to date.”In Bruges” may not be bursting with Christmas joy but it does take place during the holiday season in Bruges, Belgium. This supremely dark (I mean pitch black) comedy is funny and original. Originality seems to be hard to find these days.

Martin McDonagh is an award winning playwright who  made the jump to the big screen with “In Bruges”, his first film as Director/Writer. He’s now in the #3 spot on my top #10 Directors list.

McDonagh has only made 2 feature films (“In Bruges”, “Seven Psychopahts”) thus far but I love both of them immensely. I can’t wait for his next film to come out. I dig his sense of humor and like the way he blends it with violence. He reminds me of Quentin Tarantino in the sense that they both have constructed their own style and know how to perfectly pull it off with great dialogue based comedy and stylish violence. CLICK HERE to read my review of “Seven Psycopaths”.
