“Seven Psychopaths” was released back in October to rather tepid fanfare. The film was marginally successful financially and may not have been as beloved as Martin McDonagh’s first feature-length film “In Bruges,” but it still got its fair share of positive reviews. The picture will look to gain some more fans as the Blu-Ray/DVD arrives in stores today, and to honor its release, a deleted scene has just been posted online.
Easily the most enjoyable part of “Seven Psychopaths” was watching Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell and Christopher Walken acting alongside each other. Here we get a look at them conversing alone in the desert with Marty (Farrell) and Hans (Walken) reacting to Billy’s (Rockwell) interpretation on how Marty should end his screenplay. The screenplay, also called "Seven Psychopaths," is something that he has been working on throughout the entirety of the movie. While the chemistry amongst the three actors makes the deleted scene fun to watch, it’s understandable to see why McDonagh felt the need to keep it out of the final cut as it does drag on a little.
The film’s home video release will obviously be a must-have for those who enjoyed the movie. For those who weren’t as crazy about it, perhaps it’s worth a second viewing?
