  1. Excellent choices, both. In Bruges was one of the best screenplays of the last twenty years, in my opinion. And Let the Right One In rekindled my faith in vampire movies. No mean feat, let me tell you. ;-)

  2. I couldn’t agree more! In Bruges is an exceptional screenplay interpreted by great performances. Let the Right One In rediscovered the horror of vampirism.

    Thanks for stopping by!
