Seven Psychopaths is the latest crime romp from In Bruges director Martin McDonagh. Starring the beetle browed Colin Farrell, as failed LA screen writer Marty, and Sam Rockwell as his hapless buddy Billy.
Marty gets sucked into a scheme by Billy and his partner in crime Hans, played by the crimetastic Christopher Walken, to steal and hold for ransom the prized Shih-Tzu of gangland psycho Charlie, played by Woody Harrelson. As you may imagine Charlie is non-too pleased that his prized pooch has been dog napped and responds with what might only be described as great vitriol.
Due for an American release on October 12 2012. The movie also features hilarious cameos by a bunny loving Tom Waits and precious star Gabourey Sidibe. While the glamorpuss quotinent goes off the scale with Abbie Cornish and the talented Olga Kurylenko.
The movies tagline They won’t take any Shih-Tzu gives an idea of the level of farce we are dealing with but with a cast this great it almost doesn’t matter what they do. Check out the trailer, and in case you haven’t seen Farrell in the marvelous In Bruges now is the time, this black European comedy is a Crimezine favorite.
