"The Pillowman" is probably one of the weirdest, saddest, most disturbing things I've ever read while also being one of the most beautiful and brilliant (and no, I don't think everything McDonagh writes is brilliant, some of of his plays were only 'very good') stories I've known. It's cruel and horrible but oddly comforting at the same time.
I just realised I forgot to go and see "The Adventures Of Prince Achmed" today. I hope they are going to show it again some day. Because it looks so good.
