Seven Psychopaths

From the writer and director of In Bruges comes this Los Angeles-set crime comedy involving a screenwriter, the gangster underworld and one mobster's beloved Shih Tzu. Stars Colin Farrell, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell and Christopher Walken.

Marty (Farrell) is a struggling writer who dreams of finishing his screenplay, Seven Psychopaths. All he needs is a little focus and inspiration. Billy (Rockwell) is Marty's best friend, an unemployed actor and part time dog thief, who will help Marty by any means necessary. Hans (Walken) is Billy's partner in crime, a religious man with a violent past. Charlie (Harrelson) is the unpredictable, psycho-pathetic gangster whose beloved dog Billy and Hans have just stolen. Marty is going to get all the focus and inspiration he needs, presuming he lives to tell the tale.

Arm-wrestles the split between shlock and sincerity...

Engagingly off-centre, like Charlie Kaufman taking down Quentin Tarantino... often closer to chaos than it is to genius.

Meta to the max, filled with clever jokes and observations that stick like barbs and deflated ones that land with a thud.

After a while the narrative falters, the ideas flag and it simply gets dull.

A collection of weird riffs that not even engaging acting by Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell, Woody Harrelson, Christopher Walken and Tom Waits can bring together.

Hilarious, unwieldy, clever, snarky and snide it may be, but it's always entertaining.

There's way more wit than weight in Martin McDonagh's second feature, but still much to enjoy.

Enormously entertaining, endlessly quotable, perfectly cast and packed full of the richest acting you'll see from an ensemble cast all year, but the result is ever so slightly hollow.
