This is excellent, a movie worth watching multiple times. Those are my favorite kinds. The director Martin McDonagh's Seven Psychopaths is great too. His most recent movie, Three Billboards has a fine cast but I'm not so sure about it. A friend, whose movie opinion I trust, didn't like it too much.In Bruges
It's interesting you should say that because Jarmusch took the title from a 1964 novel abt out of control teen agers running wild in England to be adapted into a movie staring Mick & Keith and be directed by Nick Ray of Rebel Without A Cause fame...and for further connections. Early on Jarmusch worked with/for Nick Ray. Jarmusch kinda befriended him at the end of his career.I think the title is kewl. The movie itself was okay but not astounding.
I forgot how much I loved this movie. Colin Farrell ALMOST makes up for his abhorrent performance in Ask The Dust. But the Double Moustache action taking place on his lower forehead will always pre-empt any attempt at taking him serious....Yesterday night in a hotel room somewhere in East Germany. I couldn't sleep and watched In Bruges. That was a good one.
Man, this looks really good. Amazing cast too. Charlotte Rampling, Jeremy Irons, Ganz... etc.Night Train to Lisbon. When I started to watch it I was about to switch off, but then it got me hooked. A couple of great German actors in there, Martina Gedeck and Bruno Ganz.
