We can't imagine there will be a film that's more batshit crazy than Martin McDonagh's Seven Psychopaths this fall, and that's a glowing compliment. Complex caught an early screening of the In Bruges writer-director's latest dark comedy last month, and, trust us, it's unlike anything else you'll see before year's end. Put it this way: Chances are, it's the only film in which viewers will see a Vietnamese priest soul-searching with a prostitute, famous actors getting their heads blown off, and Christopher Walken, armed with two guns, rising up from a grave like Nosferatu out of his tomb.
That's not even the half of what Seven Psychopaths has to offer. Story-wise, McDonagh's film is all over the place, starting with a struggling screenwriter (Colin Farrell) laboring through a script about various lunatics with homicidal tendencies, and bouncing around from a sleazy guy who kidnaps dogs (Sam Rockwell), a mob boss (Woody Harrelson) desperately in love with his Shih Tzu, and a two-timing, bikini-clad dame (Olga Kurylenko), just to name a few of the movie's eccentric characters. The rest of the twisted surprises in Seven Psychopaths are best left undiscussed here.
