Sunday Matinee: In Bruges

The International Movie Database (IMDb, to the cognoscenti) claims that this movie is a comedy, but that’s a stretch. The protagonist is a hitman who, before we meet him, kills a priest, intentionally, and a young boy, accidentally.

Hilarity ensues.

Well, not quite. Ray and his partner are temporarily exiled to Bruges, Belgium. Hence, In Bruges.

This is dark caper comedy, with all the improbable coincidences that make it a movie instead of a news story.

It’s not hilarious, but it’s pretty good. Check it out.
