In Bruges

I just finished watching "In Bruges". If you haven't seen it yet, you should. It's f*n hilarious - very smart and very dark but definitely hilarious.

The dialogue is awesome. It borders on ridiculous but it's quick-paced and witty. A few wtf moments for sure, which is not entirely surprising given the absurdity of the plot, yet it's somewhat refreshing to have intelligent wtf moments. You have to see it to understand what I'm saying.

The movie is not for everyone. Not everyone who watches it will enjoy it as much as I did...and I enjoyed it a lot.

My favorite lines:

Ray: Ken, I grew up in Dublin. I love Dublin. If I grew up on a farm, and was retarded, Bruges might impress me but I didn't, so it doesn't.

Ray: My arse let's go. They're filming midgets.

Ray: Maybe that's what hell is, the entire rest of eternity spent in fucking Bruges.

Ray: This is exactly my point! People going around calling you a midget when you want to be called a dwarf. Of course you're going to blow your head off.

Ray: You can't sell horse tranquilizers to a midget!

And my favorite line in the whole movie (in context both in and out of the movie, of course):

Harry: [to wife] You're an inanimate fuckin' object!
