“..this is really a movie about the creative impulse and its tendency to make people nuts, a subject it explores with incessant and sometimes exasperating restlessness..”
3 of 4

“..there's so much going on in "Seven Psychopaths" in fact, that the movie finally bursts apart at the seams..”
by Ty Burr [Boston Globe]
“..the movie is genuinely humor-resistant. Any cult it develops will be chewing gum and wearing Halloween costumes..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
3 of 4

“..sometimes these scenarios are better than what's happening in the "real" action on screen..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
“..small in stature but consistently entertaining..”
by Richard Corliss [TIME Magazine]
3.5 of 4

“..seven times more clever than most Hollywood comedies..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
“..meta to the max, filled with clever jokes and observations that stick like barbs and deflated ones that land with a thud..”
by Manohla Dargis [New York Times]
4 of 5

“..may not be McDonagh's best film, but with all its crazy bells and whistles, it sure is an entertaining one..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]
3 of 4

“..it's crazy-killer fun..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
4 of 5

“..delights in pulling the rug out from under the audience every seven minutes or so, but it does this pulling in such cerebrally and cinematically exciting ways that once you shake it off..”
by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies]
2 of 4

“..are all fun to watch..”
by Mick LaSalle [San Francisco Chronicle]

Z FOR ZACHARIAH :

“..the dramatic tension considerably less, in a movie that feels stranded somewhere between serious artistic ambition and the dystopian franchise-building of "The Hunger Games," "Divergent," et al..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]

WE ARE YOUR FRIENDS :

“..Joseph's debut proves to be a film with mood to spare but nothing much to say..”
by Nick Schager [The Playlist]

NO ESCAPE :

“..it's a disingenuous mess..”
by Nick Schager [The Playlist]

DIGGING FOR FIRE :

“..the movie steps lively with buoyant humor and palpable sexual tension, but keep an eye out for the dark places..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]

LEARNING TO DRIVE :

“..it has the intelligence to answer its own questions, about how a New Yorker could be so endlessly selfless. It just doesn't have the courage of its convictions, to delve a little deeper past the broad strokes of this frustratingly familiar.. story..”
by Tasha Robinson [A.V. Club]

QUEEN OF EARTH :

“..it's a cold picture and may be a little obscure for some audiences, but watching this thrilling new filmmaking step and an auteurial voice grow is exciting stuff to witness..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]

THE CURSE OF DOWNERS GROVE :

“..a messy hash of teen soap opera, stalker thriller and whatnot whose titular, possibly supernatural aspect is basically irrelevant..”
by Dennis Harvey [Variety]

SEQUOIA :

“..sometimes feels like an unwanted distraction..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]

BANG BANG BABY :

“..Rich Pell and David Wall have written a couple of memorable tunes and frankly, it's too bad there weren't a few more..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

HOLDING THE MAN :

“..generally the pacing of the film is good, only lagging in moments, an impressive accomplishment in a story covering such a period of time..”
by Lauren Williams [Planet Arts Melbourne]
