Throwback Thursday: Revisiting ‘In Bruges’ Starring Colin Farrell, Score By Academy Award Nominee Carter Burwell!


The best films waste no time, and In Bruges hits the ground sprinting with this pin-sharp voiceover: “After I’d killed him, I dropped the gun in the Thames, washed the residue off my hands in the bathroom of a Burger King, and walked home to await instructions.” – The Guardian


For this Throwback Thursday, we revisit In Bruges, starring Irish actor Colin Farrell (who won a Golden Globe® for his performance in this film), Brendan Gleeson, Ralph Fiennes, Clemence Poesy, Jeremy Renier, Thekla Reuten and Jordan Prentice.  The film is scored by Academy Award® nominee Carter Burwell (Anomalisa, Carol, Mr. Holmes) and directed by Academy Award® winner Martin McDonagh.  Watch our interview with Carter (below), who talks about scoring In Bruges movie (rent it on iTunes).
