When Marty is left alone with Zachariah for his first encounter with a psychopath setup by Billie, Zachariah speaks of having an idea that he and Maggie would travel the country killing people. This idea is all too familiar as Woody Harrelson (Charlie) starred as Mickey Knox in Natural Born Killers, a film with the plot of a couple traveling the country killing people. See more »
At the final showdown, the Jack of Diamonds that is facing the camera in Bonnie's collar moves from the right front to the back left of the dog's neck. This cannot be explained away by the collar slipping around its neck, since the face of the card would be facing away from the camera and into its neck if it did slide around there. See more »
My wife is sitting on a chair someplace. Some gray place. I thought she'd be in Heaven, but she's sitting on a chair with a bullet in her head. I thought they'd have cleaned that kind of stuff up.
Maybe you've just eaten too many hallucinogenic cactuses tonight, Hans.
Nothing to do with the hallucinogens.
But you've just seen Myra on a chair with a bullet through her head.
In some gray place.
It seemed a lot worse than that.

In Los Angeles, the alcoholic Irish screenplay writer Marty (Colin Farrell) lives with his girlfriend Kaya (Abbie Cornish) and is writing the screenplay of a story about seven psychopaths. His best friend Billy (Sam Rockwell), who helps Marty to develop the profile of psychopaths, kidnaps dogs for the veteran smalltime crook Hans (Christopher Walken) that returns the animal to the owner to receive the reward. When Billy kidnaps the beloved Shih Tzu that is the pride and joy of the powerful gangster Charlie (Woody Harrelson), he hunts Hans down and kills his wife Myra (Linda Bright Clay) in the hospital. Soon Marty learns that the psychopaths described by Billy are not fictional.
"Seven Psychopaths" pretentious, overrated and boring movie about an alcoholic Irish writer that is writing about psychopaths and finds that is surrounded by them. The plot was supposed to be a combination of comedy with crime, but it does not work well and I laughed only in a couple of scenes. Maybe with Guy Ritchie in the direction, "Seven Psychopaths" might have worked, but unfortunately Martin McDonagh does not repeat the good work of "In Bruges" and the movie sucks. My vote is four.
Title (Brazil): "Sete Psicopatas e um Shih Tzu" ("Seven Psychopaths and one Shih Tzu")
