Twilight Language: Suicidal Dwarfs, Jokers And All That
I have long admired the Irish playwright Martin McDonagh for his bleak, darkly comic works, in no small part because almost every one of them features, in full view of the audience, at least one act of unspeakable violence. There is something visceral and real about seeing blood packets hidden in an actor's wig spatter into the front row when his stage brother hits him in the head with a bat. That's good theater, friends. McDonagh's first feature film as a director he won an Oscar for a short several years ago , called In Bruges , takes the action out of the miserable villages of Ireland where his most famous plays are set, but retains the violent action and caustic dialogue that make them so memorable.
“THEY’RE FILMING MIDGETS!” THE STRANGE WORLD OF BRUGES
Original and offbeat, the plot twists and turns in unpredictable and exciting directions with enough colourful characters, wonderful lines, absurd situations and laugh-out-loud funny scenes to satisfy the most jaded of palates. Ray needs someone or something to take his mind off his disastrous last hit, when he accidentally shot a boy while killing a priest. The natural conversations are a breath of fresh air, chock-full of wonderful lines and a distinctly Irish wit that is robustly obscene. In spite of the visual treats offered by the city of Bruges and some surreal scenes, the dazzling dialogue and the way it is delivered is the best thing about the film. The slick, snappy exchanges between Farrell and Gleeson are even funnier and more profane than the interactions between Samuel L.
A couple of things that strike me: Michael Gilden appeared in the CSI episode " A Little Murder " in which the character he plays kills a man by hanging him and then if I recall the details correctly he hangs himself. Which resonates with the photos of Heath Ledger from the Imaginarium set. In fiction the court jester another name for joker is often shown as being a dwarf. I am unsure how common this actually was, but some of the most famous have been, like Jeffrey Hudson the "Queen's Dwarf" he was presented to the Queen baked in a pie!! His life story is amazing.
