Movie Review: "Seven Psychopaths"

Seven Psychopaths is a film that requires an acquired taste.  If you like films in the vein of Quentin Tarrantino, or loved Psychopaths' director, Martin McDonagh's previous film, In Bruges, then you'll love this film, and if you don't, you're left scratching your head for the entirety of this film at all of the senseless violence and pointless obscenities.

In the film, Sam Rockwell, Colin Farrell, and Christopher Walken, kidnap a gangster's Shih Tzu, and this leads to all of the crazy, bizarre antics of the entire film.  That's all you need to know about Seven Psychopaths.  It's psychotic and the character's psychosis make very little sense in a realistic fashion.  It's over-the-top, and glorifies itself for being as such.  However, whenever you have the likes of Rockwell, Walken, and Woody Harrelson, sharing the screen together, there will be laughs, even if they're laughs entirely in darkly comedic circumstances.

Seven Psychopaths is just for a small niche audience, and I've just accepted that I am not one of that audience.  I can see how someone would love this nonsensical film, I'm just not a fan.

I give Seven Psychopaths an F
