Seven PsychopathsA dog, a screenwriter and the criminal underworld get entangled in Seven Psychopaths, which scored high points with critics and moviegoers when it was in theaters.

The comedy movie stars Colin Farrell (Horrible Bosses) as Marty, a struggling screenwriter in Los Angeles who just needs some focus and inspiration to finish his screenplay. His focus gets a little astray, however, when he inadvertantly gets entangled with the criminal underworld after his unamployed actor best friend (Sam Rockwell, Conviction) and his partner in crime (Christopher Walken, Catch Me If You Can) kidnap a gangster’s (Woody Harrelson, The Hunger Games) beloved Shih Tzu.

Michael Pitt (TV’s Boardwalk Empire), Harry Dean Stanton (TV’s Big Love) and Abbie Cornish (Sucker Punch) also star in the R-rated film, which was written and directed by Martin McDonagh (In Bruges).

Critics praised Seven Psychopaths, with New Yorker‘s David Denby saying it’s “the kind of messy, absurdist movie that can lift you out of a crappy mood—at least for a while.”

The movie won the People’s Choice Midnight Madness Award at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival.

Seven Psychopaths Blu-ray boxThe comedy was largely missed in theaters, grossing only $15 million. So it’s one to catch on DVD or Blu-ray.

Both formats carry six featurettes for special features:

  • “Martin McDonagh’s Seven Psycopaths”
  • “Crazy Locations”
  • “Woody Harrelson is Charlie”
  • “Colin Farrell is Marty”
  • “Layers”
  • and “Seven Psychocats.”

Both the DVD and Blu-ray also contain a downloadable digital copy of the movie and instant streaming via UltraViolet.
