This city is afraid of me. I have seen its true face. The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout 'Save us!'... and Gon's Balls will whisper 'First... comes... rock!' Hah!  Made you stare at Naruto's Marshmallow!  Pushing the logo off-center to drive TheOcean insane.

Default Seven Psychopaths

Just saw this, and I have to say, it is another firm that I thought was fantastic. A rare firm which is trying to be deep and actually is deep. [ The films message on suicide and the full 180-degree review of how we view that issue with it going from the ultimate sin to a form of possible salvation is a wonderful, if dark message. ]

I have heard several people complain about the female characters in this film, which seems strange to me because I get the feeling that McDonagh here was having a go a history. If you look at all the female characters, bar the somewhat unfortunate mobster's girlfriend, who I presume is meant to be a kick at mainstream portrayal of women, they are the forgotten driving force behind one of the psychopaths. He is critiquing the fact that women who have played a massive part in history are all too often pushed to the shadows and forgotten about in place of men. He could not be making this message more clearly than when Han's has a go at Marty for forgetting to put his wife in his part of the story.

Overall, I really enjoyed this film and I think, like In Brudge, it suffered from being marketed as a Black Comedy, when clearly it is meant to be a character-piece. He is not parodying parodies, he making a film for the sake of making the film he wants to make.

I didn't really like it. But that was mostly because I thought it was gross and hated what's-his-name. The Jack of Diamonds guy. I didn't really like the main character either. The only character I really thought was interesting was Hans, but that might have just been the Walken factor.

I guess it just wasn't for me. I thought it was senselessly violent and had a stupid plot.
