5. Seven Psychopaths

JamesArthurArmstrong JamesArthurArmstrong "Hey new idea. How 'bout we change the title from The Seven Psychopaths to The Seven Lesbians Who Are All Disabled And Have Overcome All Their Spazzy Sh*t And Are Really Nice to Everybody And Two of Them Are Black. How 'bout that?" — Billy

Featuring a cast that is brimming with talent, Seven Psychopaths is a delightfully goofy movie that plays out like a first rate noir crime thriller, but never attempts to be one. On the surface you could be tricked into thinking Seven Psychopaths is your cliche guy movie. It does feature men with guns; men pointing guns at other men; men threatening to kill other men, with some heads exploding along the way. However, this movie allows you to figure it all out, step-by-step in a humourous yet shocking manner. A lot of blood is splattered throughout, most to funny effect, with some to heartfelt sadness thrown into the mix. And that's where Seven Psychopaths works. It self-mocks at being literary in Hollywood, yet flips its crazy-killer tone to a sympathetic one when necessary.
