But how to throw yourself one? Should be easy, right? Find some Colin Farrell movies and watch them. But no, there’s a finer art that goes into curating the proper play order.

McDonagh’s bleak and comedic drama strikes perfect note.
While In Bruges was tightly wound and focused, Martin McDonagh’s sophomore effort, Seven Psychopaths is more of a spiralling series of darkly comic episodes that only gets thoughtful in the climax and even then it's never really meant to be taken seriously. It’s his crack at creating a violent cult comedy and thankfully he’s got the skills (and the cast) to pull off that trick.
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.
