You've picked up a very pretty prostitute
One of the best scenes from one of the best films of 2008. How come In Bruges never got as much love as it certainly deserved? Certainly, it stretches the faith of audiences to ask them to sympathize with a character who has murdered a child, but its biggest villain is the dreaded pre-Spring release. It doomed the movie early, but not so much as to not get a Best Original Screenplay nomination for writer/director Martin McDonaugh.
