The best films waste no time, and In Bruges hits the ground sprinting with this pin-sharp voiceover: “After I’d killed him, I dropped the gun in the Thames, washed the residue off my hands in the bathroom of a Burger King, and walked home to await instructions.” – The Guardian
For this Throwback Thursday, we revisit In Bruges, starring Irish actor Colin Farrell (who won a Golden Globe® for his performance in this film), Brendan Gleeson, Ralph Fiennes, Clemence Poesy, Jeremy Renier, Thekla Reuten and Jordan Prentice.
