Some might describe Walken as a wild card actor, since his portfolio smoothly entails many.

Film Review - Seven Psychopaths. In 2008, writer/director Martin McDonagh made In Bruges. This was a smart and unique film that was both dramatic and comedic in equal measure.

The story of Marty, Billy and Hans on the run from Charlie is set alongside the ideas behind the fictional Seven Psychopaths - who include an avenging Quaker with a razor and a Viet Cong killer. If, in places, In Bruges's rat-a-tat dialogue and brooding, mood-lit chamber pieces betrayed its writer's pedigree, Seven Psychopaths feels wrested free from even the modest confines hemming in its predecessor, or its author.
