Movie review: 'Seven Psychopaths'

Martin McDonagh's “Seven Psychopaths” sculpts a more complicated and extremely satisfying interlocking narrative in which the storytellers — both McDonagh and star Colin Farrell's alcoholic screenwriter Marty — have casual relationships with telling the straight truth.
Oklahoman Published: October 12, 2012

As such, this is a film for people with thick skins and an appreciation for darkly funny ultraviolence. McDonagh's tight and funny script provides plenty of grist for great players like Farrell, Rockwell and Walken, an unlikely trio attempting to stay afloat in a bloodbath, and the surrounding cast, including Cornish, Olga Kurylenko and Tom Waits, substantially enhances the carnage. “Seven Psychopaths” does not possess the air of originality that made “In Bruges” so great, but fans of McDonagh's sharp mind and foul mouth will go crazy for it.
