Our Take

7.6
Helena Barker & Emily Greene

If you like any of the following: Irish accents, Woody Harrelson, Pulp Fiction, or dark comedy;  then this is the movie for you. This mix of violence, mafia, existential talk, and painfully comical situations might not be for everyone, but it has every component to make its target audience very pleased. And given how chaotic and crazy it can get, it should be enjoyed one take at a time, focusing on each delightful scene rather than the overall plot. Directed by Martin McDonagh, Seven Psychopaths makes a perfect comeback after In Bruges, without veering very much from it (consequently if you like this movie make sure you check out In Bruges too).

A struggling screenwriter gets caught up in the underworld of Hollywood after his friends kidnap a gangster’s beloved shih tzu. Starring Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell, Christopher Walken, Woody Harrelson, this hilarious film is reminiscent of a more darkly funny version of “Raising Arizona.” Impeccably funny dialogue from the opening scene to the end. Brilliantly done.
