In Bruges vs. The Long Good Friday



Gangsters with Irish connections. In Bruges is OK, clever it's own way, but ultimately a bit lightweight. The Long Good Friday is absolute, stone-cold brilliant. Bob Hoskins has never been better (and never will be). The feverish manner he goes about trying (and failing) to track down who's attacking his empire is up there with any of the performances from the Godfather. Yes, I am making that comparison. The Long Good Friday wins at a trot.

The Long Good Friday wins hands down. Bob Hoskins is also great in Mona Lisa, which is a "Must see!"
