“In Bruges” and the the Unexpected Hitmen

I am still blown away by the unexpectedly deep and charming film “In Bruges.” I highly suggest you run, not walk and see this film. Oh yes, it has the f-bomb at least 50 times, drugs, frisky activity, blood and non-PC comments, but wow. I’m still reeling from how I didn’t expect it to be anything more than a silly spoof of two conmen. Instead what unravels is this whole tale of redemption. Without spoiling it, I loved seeing art informing life and life unrolling into art. I laughed but have been pondering this film all day long, after seeing it last night.

FYI- We ate at nearby restaurant Mykonos. They make great moussaka and dolmades, and also serve pita bread reminiscent of the real McCoy in Greece not the cardboard American excuse for pita. The hummus however was dreadful and spanakopita under-cooked.


  1. 1. Isn’t their moussake good though?? Glad you tried it!!
    2. I’m glad you finally saw the movie. YES it is freaking hilarious. And dark….and yes, it does has this wonderfully deep emotional side to it that kinda comes outta nowhere. It truly was one of the best movies I’ve seen in a very long time. yay.
