Ray and Ken are two Irish hit-men hiding out after a job. Hiding out in Bruges on orders from their boss, Harry. Ken is all set to relax and enjoy the medieval scenery and architecture.

Mr. Brooks dir. by

This film I really, really enjoyed, but the problem is that if I say too much about it I might ruin it for you. So, in brief, Costner plays earl Brooks, a ceramic maker. A big name in the business community. But Mr. Brooks has another side to him; he likes to kill. He believes himself addicted to murder, and every now and then he falls off the wagon and his alter-ego, Marshall, gets what he wants, a murder. But on his most recent outing he makes a bad mistake and gets photographed at the scene. He know has to deal with the photographer as well as his own family issues.
