Seven Psychopaths is a comedy about what can go wrong when you come between Woody Harrelson(Charlie) and the love of his life, Bonnie, a cute Shih Tzu.
The main character in the story, Marty, is a screenwriter that has hit a wall of writer's block, while crating a movie that is aptly titled "Seven Psychopaths'.
This movie has an all-star cast with big names such as Christopher Walken, Sam Rockwell and Collin Farrell. Not your average comedy, the humor is dark, but it still makes for an entertaining watch.
Seven Psychopaths has a great story to it, as the
characters are fully developed and insightful to the definition of a psychopath. Webster's defining of the term "Psychopath" is a mentally ill or unstable person, especially one with an antisocial personality. The difference between this movie and a lot of other movies with characters having antisocial traits is that there is more than just one doing unspeakable acts which balances out the humor. I love the fact that the writer, Marty McDonagh, took the initiative to do his research before embarking on a film that has the ability to raise awareness in the mental health community. Taking a touchy subject out of the closet and making it digestible by the masses isn't easy, but Marty does a fine job.
Christopher Walken, I believe played himself in this film, as he always has that smooth calculated cool about him in almost everything we've seen thus far. Sam Rockwell gave a stellar performance in this film as well, he is often an underrated actor, but has the skills to compete with some of the best. If you've seen his work in Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind, then you already know what I mean. The movie wasn't all about cameos and star power, it was actually pretty damn funny, especially if you get into quality dialogue with a dark edge.
I know you want me to tell you who did what and why, but I just can't bring myself to ruin a great movie for first time viewers. Now I'd really love to get into the specifics of this movie, as well as, chat about the parts I loved, but I need to know that you've seen it first. The best way to let me know that you've seen something is to leave a comment.
Now with that out of the way, Marty and Billy get mixed up with Charlie, a psychopath that owns a cute little Shih Tzu that he cannot seem to find. Word gets around that Billy may be kidnapping dogs and selling them back to the owners. Charlie flips every stone and rock to find out where his beloved Bonnie is, until he runs into Han's mother and this is where the rubber meets the road. All of the action following that event lead up to a revelation of sorts in the final hour. Now to know what epiphany was had and by whom, your just going to have to watch the movie. You can find it on redbox or have it streamed via internet for the masses.
