Six Shooter

Director: Martin McDonagh

In his debut effort as a filmmaker, Martin McDonagh won an Academy Award for Best Short with this pitch-black comedy. Overwhelmed by grief following the death of his wife, Donnelly (Brendan Gleeson) meets the insane, foul-mouthed character identified only as the ‘Kid’ (Rúaidhrí Conroy) as he travels home on a train. Violence and death begins to haunt the train as the journey goes on, with McDonagh drawing savage humour from terrible situations.
