The brilliant Irish playwright Martin McDonagh is responsible for some of the greatest and most delightfully absurd dark comedies of the 21st century. Although McDonagh crafted his brilliant wordplay on the stage with his highly influential theater work, he’s shown an equal amount of brilliance with the films that he’s directed. McDonagh has relied upon great actors like the legendary Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson, Sam Rockwell, and Woody Harrelson to bring some truly absurd characters to life. His work has frequently attracted the interest of Academy Award voters.
