"In Bruges" is a film similar to and of the caliber of "Pulp Fiction". Like Tarantino's masterpiece, it features a parade of depraved characters, and the audience is treated to the hilarious, violent and yet ultimately sad state of their lives. Unlike "Pulp Fiction", the characters in "In Bruges" actually struggle with the human condition, some continually making bad decisions, others trying to 'do the right thing' only to have it backfire more often than not. This film is ultimately about innocence. What makes it worth recommending is that there isn't a single character in the movie (not the fat Americans, the rude Canadians or even the boy in the confessional) that is truly innocent.
