In fuckin' Bruges


We watched In Bruges a few nights ago and we loved it. I had never actually heard of it before, but we were bored at home and browsing what was available On Demand when we came across it.

It wasn't groundbreaking or anything. But it played its fine line between over the top comedy and pathos pretty damn well. And Colin Farrell is some kind of actor. So is Brendan Gleeson.

There are a couple of laugh out loud moments that are worth the price of renting it alone. Mostly to do with a drug-fueled dwarf actor. Intriguing, eh? Go watch it.

Random Wiki: Ajapa is an ancient form of yoga. It has something to do with meditation and breathing. That's all I got.

As I am always amused by drugged up dwarves, I will have to watch it.

Gonna get it out. Brendan Gleeson is one of those actors who turns up in everything but no-one ever knows his name. I loved him with his lamb chop sideburns in 'I Went Down'

i haven't seen it and you know what i hate about it?
the title

there are two (main) parts to belgium. Flanders (where they speak Flemish) and the south part (where they speak French)

Bruges is the French spelling
Brugge is the Flemish spelling

Brugge is in Flanders.

that's why i refuse to watch it. bad research.

Avitable - well worth it.

Evyl - If I knew about the dwarf, I would have seen this in the theater. Had I heard about it.

AK - Gleeson is amazing in everything he does.

Kiki - maybe they did it on purpose because the characters visiting there were from Ireland and the UK and they didn't know alot about it. Maybe.

Slyde - Diane Lane...drugged up dwarf...sorry, the dwarf wins.
