Too Excited For ‘Seven Psychopaths’ to Care What It’s About

To be honest, I don’t even care what Seven Psychopaths is about. I mean, yes, I care. But it’s Martin McDonagh, I am sure it will be wry and brilliant, and of course I will see it. But it’s not so much the exact plot points I’m interested in as the bizarre characters that seem to inhabit the film, played by a cast of manic weirdos whose presence alone is enough to make me want to shell out $14 on a movie ticket. But from what I’ve cared to gather, the film is a dark comedy that has something to do with the kidnapping of a mobster’s shih tzu, a struggling screenwriter, but most importantly, Tom Waits stroking a pet rabbit.

The promotion for the film has taken shape in a viral marketing campaign that seems just as odd as the characters in it, which I find thoroughly amusing. Two new clips have popped up online; the first, a scene between Sam Rockwell and Olga Kurylenko featuring this quote: “It’s a kidnapped dog. You don’t give back a kidnapped dog. It defeats the entire object of the kidnapping. They didn’t give Patty Hearst back, did they? This dog is my Patty Hearst.” 

The second clip features said rabbit-stroking Waits, in what appears to be his introduction to the other fellas.

And then there’s this:

Seven Psychopaths is in theaters October 12, and until then I will be distancing myself from reviews or criticism because, if you couldn’t tell by my apathetic tone, I am inappropriately excited.
