Los Angeles. Marty (Farrell), an Irish screenwriter, is struggling to put together a script called Seven Psychopaths. Billy (Rockwell), Marty’s friend, would like to help, and passes on anecdotes about real psychopaths, including gang boss Charlie (Harrelson) and dognapper Hans (Walken). When Billy steals Charlie’s beloved dog for Hans, Marty gets caught up in an escalating, violent situation.
Enormously entertaining, endlessly quotable, perfectly cast and packed full of the richest acting you’ll see from an ensemble cast all year, but the result is ever so slightly hollow.
