Das Leben Der Anderen AKA The Lives Of Others
Straight arrow Stasi investigator questions his work when ordered to investigate a target so that his boss can has a clear run up at the target’s girlfriend. Moving, powerful, emotionally manipulative, and at times funny.
Amusing meta darkness from Martin McDonagh, in a similar vein as Macy’s The Deal, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang or Get Shorty, with blocked scriptwriter Coin Farrell getting into all sorts of weird trouble along with his impetuous chum Sam Rockwell.
Wright & Pegg do the buddy cop movie, West Country-style.
