A non-spoilery mini-review. Mostly, because I don't know how I could describe it well-enough to give anything away.

(First off, in case you missed it in 2008, I LOVED In Bruges, the first film from this team.)

Seven Psychopaths could be any of these things:

1) A Seinfeld episode with guns, featuring a dog
2) A commentary on the difficulties of the creative writing process
3) A commentary on the use of violence in film (using Christopher Walken as a critic)

I enjoyed it while I was watching it, then had a "WTF was that?" moment when it was over, and now, as of the next morning, I'm mostly sure that I liked it.

As Gareth said last night, it definitely owes a lot to the "Pulp Fiction" style of vignette storytelling, but that does have it's charms.

Here is an interview with the director, in case you are curious about his viewpoint.
