In Bruges

Obviously, most of the film takes place not in Ireland but... well... in Bruges... but it concerns a pair if Irish hitmen. And it's a great movie.

Is there anything about "The Quiet Man" that the Irish find Politically Incorrect?

I know there is a lot of drinking but that is the only thing I could think of that some might be offended by. There are also references to the IRA, but that seems to be played both positively and negatively (or I should say - even handedly).

I ask because I have not seen this movie broadcast on any non-cable local TV station for many, many years.

I think it is time for me to go get the DVD.

Calvary with Brendan Gleeson is very Irish.

I hate to be "that" person but I just can't stop myself. The abbreviation for Patrick is Paddy. Patty is short for Patricia. So it should read Saint Paddy's Day. I am sorry, I tried to ignore it. I am the smaller person.

Now for movies. I am fond of The Commitments.
