Colin Farrell's latest film The Banshees of Inisherin, which just completed its Venice International Film Festival debut, has received a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Martin McDonagh's new film, In Bruges, brings together the same cast as his previous black comedy, with The Batman star and Brendan Gleeson (Paddington 2, the Harry Potter films) reprising their roles.
The Banshees of Inisherin, an atmospheric tale of a fallout set against the backdrop of the Irish Civil War, stars Farrell and Gleeson as Padraic Suilleabhain and Colm Doherty, two long-time friends who have had disastrous experiences.
The Banshees of Inisherin also stars Better Call Saul's Kerry Condon and Marvel's Barry Keoghan.
The film was presented at Venice on September 5 and received a 13-minute standing ovation. Empire praised Farrell's performance as being the best to date.
Martin McDonagh's another great feel-bad performance, as a guy trying (and failing) to deal with the aftermath of a falling out, according to the review.
Little White Lies, a film magazine, praised the closeness between its two leading men, writing: "The Banshees of Insherin are a testament to McDonagh's gift for dialogue and the infinitely admirable bond between Farrell and Gleeson."
Sugar, a sugar series starring Farrell, is being executive produced and directed by The Sandman, according to reports. The plot is still under wraps, but it appears the program will be a genre-bending detective story set in Los Angeles.
The Banshees of Inisherin will be released in cinemas on October 21.
