Now that we got the tame green band trailer out of the way, it’s time for Martin McDonagh to reveal the true colors of his latest dark comedy Seven Psychopaths. Returning with a larger ensemble, but keeping his In Bruges star Colin Farrell along for the ride, the film tells a meta, seemingly violent look a Hollywood screenwriter who gets caught up in a dog-kidnapping plot amidst batch of psycho killers.
With a heavy dose of profanity, including a great exchange between Farrell and Christopher Walken, this is looking like a supremely fun time. I love McDonagh’s snappy, dark nature and Woody Harrelson’s dire speech to Precious‘ Gabourey Sidibe is just the kind of comedy I’m looking forward to here. Check it out below, featuring some music borrowed from Guy Ritchie‘s Snatch score, for the film also starring Sam Rockwell, Abbie Cornish, Olga Kurylenko and Tom Waits.

In the case of evaluating David Cronenberg, — or at least forming the sort of career narrative seemingly essential to auteurist analysis — it’s inevitable to propose something of a rupture within his oeuvre: the very evident graduation from grindhouse to arthouse, and, with it, an ascension from body to mind. What dictated these labels […]

Writing about the films of Robert Bresson usually begins by informing reader that his films must be discussed through a trance of hushed tones and quiet veneration. There is no room for rushed judgement or quick-witted observations; Bresson makes Serious Art, as opposed to Hollywood directors who do not. There are the key phrases to […]
