We talked to Seven Psychopaths writer and director Martin McDonagh and its star Colin Farrell about their second collaboration following In Bruges, metafiction, the dark side of Los Angeles, and working with Christopher Walken and Tom Waits.

The almost surreal man-child comedy/drama Dark Horse from divisive director Todd Solondz almost becomes his most accessible film since Welcome to the Dollhouse. Almost.
