2012, 110 mins., directed and written by Martin McDonagh.
Aspiring screenwriter, Marty (played by Colin Farrell) struggles to complete his screenplay, “Seven Psychopaths.” Meanwhile his best friend, erstwhile dognapper Billy (Sam Rockwell) does his best to motivate his friend to finish the screenplay. A poor man’s Tarantino, the film veers off into over-the-top humor and high body counts, an approach that grows tiresome over the course of the film. Also stars Christopher Walken and Woody Harrelson. See the record for Seven Psychopaths.
