QUOTED: Seven Psychopaths director Martin McDonagh on whether he researched any real psychopaths for his film
Not really—other than my mother.
–Writer/director Martin McDonagh wittily zig-zagging around a line of questioning last night during the post-screening Q&A of his film Seven Psychopaths. Other tongue-in-cheek deflections abounded. When asked whether Colin Farrell’s character in the film—also a screenwriter and also named Martin—shared any other autobiographical traits with him, he responded with a laugh and said, “Other than alcoholism, not really.” [h/t Dmitry Beniaminov]
