As excellent a movie as you’re liable to find this year, this dark and terribly twisted tale of a friendship gone bad reunites ‘In Bruges’ stars Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson with writer-director Martin McDonagh. Exquisitely written and even more beautifully acted (including the supporting cast of Kerry Condon and Barry Keoghan), it may not be the thing for anyone with a queasy stomach, but there’s no denying the powerful and sneaky punch with which it wallops you. A true instant classic.

5/5 stars
