Seven Psychopaths

One of the psychopaths in Martin McDonagh’s follow-up to his great ‘In Bruges’, ‘Seven Psychopaths’ argues how the Mahatma Gandhi saying ‘An eye for an eye will leave the world blind’, isn't correct.

He argues: There would be at least one person with an eye left. How can the last blind guy take the eye of the last guy with one eye left?”

He concludes: “Gandhi was wrong. It’s just that nobody got the balls to come right out and say it.”

As Robert Ebert argued in his review of the film, McDonagh’s Tarantino-inspired script invents extraordinary psychotic characters, real and imaginary, and let them have a field day, and actors have a great time, as Sam Rockwell did, as Billy Bickle, who embodied not one but two psychotic characters.
