* [[invoked]]DudeNotFunny: The "Race War" dialogue, almost everyone else in that scene was uniformly disgusted, especially Ken. Jimmy himself later blames it on cocaine, a drug that can quite easily turn nice guys into arrogant arseholes.

The first feature film by acclaimed British/Irish theatre director/playwright Creator/MartinMcDonagh, it was quite well-received. The performances from Colin Farrell (Ray), Brendan Gleeson (Ken), and Creator/RalphFiennes (fuckin' Harry) all earned plenty of praise, and the film even scored a dark horse UsefulNotes/AcademyAward nomination for Best Original Screenplay.
