Movie Review – “Seven Psychopaths”

Brilliant! That’s how I felt about Martin McDonagh’s written and directed movie Seven Psychopaths when it was over and the credits were rolling. This intelligent, dark-comedy was just damn brilliant. From the overall story to the story-within-a-story, Seven Psychopaths delivered an interesting look at Hollywood and managed to deliver a solid heist/revenge flick.

Marty (Colin Farrell) is a struggling Hollywood screen writer, has a mixed relationship with his alcoholism and his girlfriend Kaya (Abbie Cornish), and is trying to balance both along with his career and friendship with Billy. His best friend Billy (Sam Rockwell) is a struggling actor. Billy has another friend names Hans (Christopher Walken) and the two of them have a con-game where they “borrow” (really steal but they call it borrowing) a dog from their target and then return the dog to the owner in hopes of collecting the cash reward. It’s a means to an end as Billy hopes to make it big in Hollywood and Hans is doing this to help pay for his wife’s cancer treatments. However, when Billy steals a small Shih Tzu that belongs to Charlie (Woody Harrelson), one of the biggest mob bosses in Los Angeles, things start to unravel for Marty, Billy, and Hans.
