Six Shooter (2004) - Harsh Irish comedy about a sad train journey

Six Shooter (2004) - black and bloody Irish comedy about a sad train journey where an older man, whose wife has died that morning, encounters a strange and possibly psychotic young oddball....

The film earned several awards, including the Academy Award for Best Live Action Short Film. McDonagh is a brilliant story teller and fully deserves his Tony nominations and his Olivier Award for Best Play (The Pillowman). McDonagh (formerly a playwright, here making his film debut) is a master craftsman, able to play several levels at the same time. "Six Shooter" is shocking, heartbreaking and very funny, often simultaneously. The story, in a nutshell, revolves around four people, each suffering a very recent death in their families. As they each deal with the loss in very different ways, they collide with each other, sometimes with words, sometimes with more. It's also fantastic to see the raw talent of Ruaidhri Conroy back on screen and with none other than Brendan Gleeson, the master! The cast is uniformly excellent, especially Brendan Gleeson as the sad-eyed protagonist. McDonagh's pitch-perfect writing - while not approaching the near-apocalyptic absurdity of plays like "The Lieutenant of Inishmore".

Directed by Martin McDonagh. Starring: Brendan Gleeson, Rúaidhrí Conroy, David Wilmot, Aisling O'Sullivan
