Seven Psychopaths

No children under 15 may watch this film.
As rated by visitors:

What movie junkie out there wouldn't leap at the chance to see merry pranksters such as Christopher Walken, Sam Rockwell and Woody Harrelson go nuts in something called Seven Psychopaths? It's crazy-killer fun.

Rolling Stone

After his cracking debut In Bruges, Martin McDonagh, one of the most important living Irish playwrights, delivers another gleefully violent, sharply scripted gem. Struggling writer, Marty (Colin Farrell, In Bruges) gets mixed up with the wrong people when his best friend Billy (Sam Rockwell, Moon), an unemployed actor and part time dog thief, steals the beloved dog of a psychopathic gangster (Woody Harrelson, No Country for Old Men). What follows is an unhinged caper film, full of explosive characters (including Christopher Walken as Billy’s partner in crime) and profound and profane sillysmart
dialogue, Seven Psychopaths is not only seven times cleverer than most Hollywood comedies, it’s also seven times more entertaining.

Director(s): Martin McDonagh   Country of Origin: United Kingdom  Year: 2012   Running Time: 1hr 50 mins

The film is roughly about Marty (Colin Farrell) needing to write a screenplay around the title of “Seven Psycopaths”. In order to do this he has to meet real-life psychopaths. He is helped in this regard by his friend Billy (Sam Rockwell) and Hans (Christopher Walken) and together they meet up with variously troubled and vicious customers such as Zachariah (Tom Waits), a Quaker preacher (Harry Dean Stanton) and a Vietnamese priest.

From the opening sequence of a killer with Jack of Diamonds calling cards, dealing with a couple of hired gunmen while they are discussing the merits of other real-life and fictional gunmen, life imitates art and then art imitates life in often amusing and always macabre ways. There are many twists in the tale including the actual number of psychopaths involved.

Two of our group voted it one of the best films seen recently, others were more circumspect, while at the same time really appreciating Martin McDonough’s directing (he made In Bruges). One of the group was concerned as to the amount of violence and bad language in the film and another walked out before halfway.
