Seven Psychopaths ★★★

The commentary on violence in contemporary American film, which serves as this film's theme, is meandering and superficial, so the pleasures are incidental. Fortunately, there's a mountain of talent in front of the camera all going for broke. Favs include Tom Waites' bunny stroking serial killer looking for his ex-partner and love of his life, and Christopher Walken providing his most Walkenesque turn in years. Also, because this is a Mark McDonagh film there's plenty of choice dialogue and droll humour.
