“Seven Psychopaths: A Clever Movie That Will Give You A Run For Your Money
6:17PM EST October 10. 2012 – Seven Psychopaths is about seven times more clever than most Hollywood comedies. And way more demented.
Men in movies are often just overgrown boys, andSeven Psychopaths (*** ½ out of four; rated R; opening Friday nationwide) is out to prove it — in the most twisted, hilarious way possible.
It’s a devilishly smart film that not only sends up the hipster crime genre, but also makes a powerful statement about violence — in a brilliantly satirical way.
Think Pulp Fiction with more laughs and cartoonish violence, crossed with an edgier Ocean’s Eleven and touches of The Usual Suspects and Smokin’ Aces. Then add a choice cast of actors as unhinged characters who could easily be 10-year-old boys — if those boys were also mental cases.
Martin (Colin Farrell) is a boozy writer with the bare outlines for a screenplay calledSeven Psychopaths. His best buddy Billy (Sam Rockwell) wants to help his friend. He proposes assisting with the writing, but what he really does is far more effective — if completely whacked out.
Christopher Walken plays Hans, an older gent who deeply loves his critically ill wife (Linda Bright Clay) and operates a shady business in which he steals dogs in order to collect the rewards. Billy is his dog-napping partner, among other things. When they take Bonny, the beloved Shih Tzu belonging to maniacal gangster Charlie (Woody Harrelson), Billy, Hans and even Martin become wanted men.
A few more pernicious nutcases skulk around the story’s periphery. Tom Waits has a very funny turn as Zachariah, half of a psycho-killing duo who only murder other psycho killers. He shows up on Martin’s doorstep, gently cradling a cuddly white bunny.”
