Seven Psychopaths (2012)

Rated: R - Runtime: 111 min
tesg's Rating: Three stars (out of four)

Seeing the cast list and the trailer made me think this was going to be a horrible disappointment. It isn't. It's funny, it's bloody, and it's offensive, using slang that's been all but eliminated from the English language. It opens and closes loose ends nicely.

There's plenty of reasons to see this, none bigger than Christopher Walken. He gets multiple monologues, a couple of his best ever. His scene in the waiting room with Woody Harrelson is just phenomenal.

Lots of people are comparing this to Tarantino's work. Said people need to educate themselves on the work of Sergio Leone.
