Some audiences will be shocked at the graphic, gruesome ways murder is served up in the latest effort from erstwhile Anglo-Irish bad boy Martin McDonagh. Here he continues in the same deconstructive, profanely funny vein he brought to his 2008 debut In Bruges
. Colin Farrell plays a hard-drinking, Irish screenwriter named—wait for it!—Marty. He's stuck trying to come up with the septet of killers for his screenplay, also called Seven Psychopaths
. Once again, McDonagh shows off his meta skills. Still, as heady, unpredictable and compulsively watchable as this movie is, I'm still not convinced all of it works.

The second feature from writer/ director/ playwright/ Anglo-Irishman Martin McDonagh continues in the same deconstructive, profanely funny vein he brought to his 2008 debut In Bruges.
