Oscar Nominations - Best Original Screenplay
I enjoyed every minute of In Bruges. The performances were incredible and the story was remarkably well written. I love witty, sarcastic comedies and this film fits the bill perfectly.
Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson, and Ralph Fiennes were all equally amazing. The chemistry between these three were the heart of the movie and without them, the film would no doubt have failed. I also respect the high amount of drama this film contains. It's really a mixture of a bunch of different genres, containing elements of many.
As I mentioned before, I love the screenplay for this film. The amount of foreshadowing in In Bruges is staggering and I will definitely have to watch it again to notice everything. I love English gangster films and In Bruges is one of the best.
