The end of the year is a-comin’ my friends, and with it comes the anticipation of the usual Christmas/Boxing Day film releases, as well as much chatter re 2013. But with less than three months left in the year, seems we still have much to look forward to short term before Santa comes to town.
Released on the 8th of November we have Seven Psychopaths. Written and Directed by Martin McDonagh, who also wrote and directed the surprisingly fun 2008’s In Bruges, Seven Psychopaths sees the Director team up with lead actor Colin Farrell once again. Here’s the spiel on this quirky comedy: “A struggling screenwriter inadvertently becomes entangled in the Los Angeles criminal underworld after his oddball friends kidnap a gangster’s beloved Shih Tzu.”
Co-starring a wealth of talent including Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, the legendary Christopher Walken, Tom Waits and Abbie Cornish, this is one to go see. Speaking of Abbie Cornish; I have to admit I wasn’t so keen on going to see Madonna’s W.E. but recently rented it as its just been released on DVD. It’s not perfect, but it is seriously good. Seems the versatile Madge has been attacked inappropriately again when this is unbelievably great work. Go check it out and be amazed.
