Hitting theaters this Friday, writer/director Martin McDonagh’s Seven Psychopaths marks the artist’s second feature film, following 2008’s In Bruges. Re-teaming him with leading man Colin Farrell, McDonagh offers what, on the surface, plays as an action-packed crime comedy while at the same time breaks down and explores conventions of cinematic violence.
In the film, Farrell stars as Marty, a struggling screenwriter who inadvertently becomes entangled in the Los Angeles criminal underworld after his oddball friends (Christopher Walken and Sam Rockwell) kidnap a gangster’s (Woody Harrelson) beloved Shih Tzu, Bonny.
ComingSoon.net sat down to chat with Farrell, Rockwell, Walken, McDonagh and even Bonny to discuss the film’s multiple layers and how they work together on the big screen.
