‘Seven Psycopaths’ finds balance in quirky comedy

DVD Review


Pauls Valley, Oklahoma —

I cannot name many cinematic works where I can so clearly distinguish so many characters in a single experience be it Costello’s ability to be so terrifying and freshly goofy or one of the inspired killers, Zachariah Rigby (Tom Waits), delivering such witty punch lines while carrying an air of a James Bond Villain. Just when you think you might start to drift away from what you are witnessing, it is with little effort that some off the wall action pulls you back in and curious to see where the heck it will all end.

While the content includes a never ending list of reasons no one under adult age needs to watch this, even with all the violence and language, I don’t feel overwhelmed in a lowbrow way. If anything, I may just watch it again or pick up a bargain copy one day just to try and process what I didn’t catch the first time. After a lot of thought where I unfortunately did not get to wear a straightjacket, I’d say “Seven Psychopaths” deserves three and a half out of five bullets.
