Celebrated Anglo-Irish playwright Martin McDonagh had clearly been snogging the Blarney stone before he penned this comedy thriller treat.
A gloriously profane blend of Pinter, Beckett and Tarantino, it traps hitmen Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson in the eponymous Belgian city after a job gone wrong.
The leads are on top form, and the oddly profound conclusion is far more moving than you’d predict from a movie containing a coked-up dwarf ruminating on race war.
Paltry extras, aside from Matt smith’s unexpected cameo in a deleted scene – wielding a machete as a young Ralph Fiennes.
