I think one of the connections I saw is more of a flip-flop of the mistaken identity. In Don’t Look Now, Donald Sutherland is running around chasing “his daughter” when in actuality it’s a murderous dwarf… and in Bruges the twist of their movie is the evil dwarf is actually a child.

In another film of McDonagh (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri; 2017), police officer Dixon (the admirable Sam Rockwell) complains about the frequency he sees D. Sutherland on TV. And his mother says "I like it, like his hair. This is the one where his little girl dies." Here the victim is a teenage girl and the dwarf is a side character. I think he wants us to watch "Don't look now". But why?
I loved your blog. Great and rare-to-find contribution from your age group. Thank you Dr. M.
