Irish-born playwright/filmmaker Martin McDonagh’s follow-up to his excellent 2008 In Bruges is so funny you want to see it again and quote the best lines to your friends. The brutal, rollicking story involving an alcoholic screenwriter, Marty (Colin Farrell), his unstable friend Billy (Sam Rockwell), a serial killer, a pious dog kidnapper (Christopher Walken), a dog-snatching ring, and a crazy mobster (Woody Harrelson) seeking vengeance for the snatching of his beloved Shih Tzu. The film’s real theme is the process of screenwriting, as Marty struggles to finish Seven Psychopaths while dealing with the gun-toting lunatics surrounding him. Rockwell, who’s known for stealing movies, does so here as the pal who insists that the movie end his way.
