SEVEN PSYCHOPATHS @ Arclight Hollywood, Friday, 10/12, 7:45 PM

Writer/director Martin McDonagh received a well-deserved Oscar screenplay nomination for In Bruges, one of the most critically well received box office bombs in recent memory. Undaunted by commercial failure, he's back, with Seven Psychopaths. Considering the simultaneous opening of Argo, and the quirky nature of his humor (take a look at the trailer and accompanying clip). I suspect that he awaits the same fate, but I'm going to do my part to make sure that this guy keeps making movies.

Starring Colin Farrell, Christopher Walken, Sam Rockwell, Woody Harrelson, Abbie Cornish, Tom Waits, Olga Kurylenko (Bond girl, Quantum of Solace), Zeljko Ivanek (one of those actors whose name you can't pronounce but recognize instantly), here's the rest:

Tickets are available at Arclight's website. I'm in M22.

Dinner will be in the Arclight Cafe at 6:15.

Synopsis:

Marty (Farrell) is a struggling writer who dreams of finishing his screenplay, "Seven Psychopaths". Billy (Rockwell) is Marty's best friend, an unemployed actor and part time dog thief, who wants to help Marty by any means necessary. All he needs is a little focus and inspiration. Hans (Walken) is Billy's partner in crime. A religious man with a violent past. Charlie (Harrelson) is the psychopathetic gangster whose beloved dog, Billy and Hans have just stolen. Charlie's unpredictable, extremely violent and wouldn't think twice about killing anyone or anything associated with the theft. Marty is going to get all the focus and inspiration he needs, just as long as he lives to tell the tale.

    Great actors made the movie very enjoyable. Not sure I could follow the uneven story, but definitely a different sort of comedy. It was a challenge to get through the gore and enjoy the crazy ride.
