Laggies Review

Lynn Shelton’s Laggies constitutes cringe comedy at its finest, while being charming if unoriginal at times.

A Single Shot Review

While a great showcase for the acting talents of star Sam Rockwell – an actor who needs more leading roles than just the character work he knocks out of the park every time – the backwoods thriller A Single Shot misinterprets “slow burn” as “illogically stalling.”

Seven Psychopaths Review

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.

Interview: Colin Farrell & Martin McDonagh

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.
