Movie Reviews: In Bruges, Paradise Now

In Bruges

One of the best movies I've seen so far this year. A dark comedy about two hit men hiding out in Bruges after a hit gone wrong. One of them likes Bruges; the other doesn't. They try to get on as best they can. Written and directed by Martin McDonagh (his first feature film) and released in Feb 2008.

Paradise Now

I didn't like this 2005 movie too much. About two Palestinians on a suicide mission, the first half was really good, but the end left me feeling like there were gaps in the movie. The two protagonists seem to suddenly switch roles for no apparent reason. Directed by Hany Abu-Assad.
