The plot: Booze-swilling Irish scribe Marty has reached an impasse with his script entitled Seven Psychopaths. So Marty's best friend Billy, who is involved in a dog-napping scam with elderly associate Hans, places a newspaper advert asking bona fide psychopaths to anonymously share their life stories with Marty. Meanwhile, Billy and Hans steal a shih tzu called Bonny, unaware the pooch is the pride and joy of sadistic gangster Charlie Costello.

what the others say
"Enormously entertaining, endlessly quotable, perfectly cast and packed full of the richest acting you'll see from an ensemble cast all year, but the result is ever so slightly hollow."
"If there's a certain thrill in watching bad guys getting their brains sprayed across a wall, it's surpassed by the intrigue of having a filmmaker reveal the inner workings of his own mind."
"The script's primary tension isn't between the characters at all, but rather in McDonagh's mind, as he arm-wrestles the split between shlock and sincerity in screenwriting."
