‘Seven Psychopaths’ and ‘Sightseers’

It’s a double dose of dark comedies that happen to prominently feature…dognapping? Not the smoothest or most obvious connection we’ve made, probably, but both flicks bear some discussing. First up and new in theaters this past weekend is Martin McDonagh’s Seven Psychopaths, his long-awaited follow-up in In Bruges. Next up is a movie that won’t be arriving stateside for a bit, Ben Wheatley’s Sightseers, which is about as funny as graphic killing sprees are allowed to get.
