McDonagh’s bleak and comedic drama strikes perfect note.
Our Film Editor and Editor-in-Chief discuss the indies and blockbusters they're looking forward to in 2017.
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.
Enter for a chance to win one of ten pairs of passes to an advance screening of the comedy Seven Psychopaths in Ottawa, Halifax, or Winnipeg on Wednesday, October 10th at 7:00pm from Dork Shelf and Alliance Films.
