Couch Critic: Seven PsychopathsIn Brief
An original movie with unexpected storytelling, Seven Psychopaths can be hit and miss. Interest wanes as the direction of the plot is hard to follow but the superb acting from the ensemble cast and some really classic lines keep it entertaining enough to forge on. Its humor is dark, to be sure, having a sick, strange, and very weird bent to it. And its also a very self-aware movie in the way that some stories are screenplays about screenplays you will feel the characters acknowledge the fourth wall but never fully break it. Overall, this is a clever and smart movie and you take the good with the imperfect.
