Seven Psychopaths

Art imitates life, but with a higher body count, in this week’s big film release.

In Seven Psychopaths, struggling Hollywood scriptwriter Marty (Colin Farrell) has a title (er, Seven Psychopaths), he just hasn’t got a script.

Meanwhile, real-life Seven Psychopaths writer/director (keep up), London-born Irish playwright Martin McDonagh, not only has a great script, he’s also got an amazing cast — Farrell, Christopher Walken, Sam Rockwell, Woody Harrelson and Tom Waits — whom between them should know a thing or two about playing a psychopath.

The result is a smart, explosive and very funny film; a sort of insider’s take on the movie-making process, only with more violence and dog-theft. It’s well worth 110 minutes of your time, and joins a long line of films about seven of something (none of which, weirdly, are from the Seventies)…
