Psychopaths

Post by ed »

I recall seing Goodfellas for the first time and thinking: "god, I'd like to know Tommy, he could come in handy".

Having seen a number of psychopaths in movies and on TV I was wondering which one you'd like to befriend. Take your time, but not too long.

At the moment, Omar is ahead for being my BMF.

Tommy in Goodfellas: a true psychopath. Right on the edge. Waddaya want? He's a good shot.

Omar from The Wire. I like this guy. Not quite as wacky as Tommy. Very efficient.

Snoop from The Wire. Woman of few words. Not much for conversation.

Sgt. William Schumann from Wag the Dog. Too crazy, even for me.

Tommy Udo from Kiss of Death. Definitely a contender. My Mom has been acting up lately.

Cody Jarrett from White Heat. Jimmy did crazy. Nuff said. n.b. If you haven't, catch this.

Mallory Knox from Natural Born Killers. There is crazy in Juliette's eyes. Real crazy.

Mickey Knox from NBK. Woody gets me nervous, he's too good at this.

Ralph Gurney, the 13th Earl of Gurney from The Ruling Class. Peter did crazy well too. If the Earl never killed anyone, it was not for lack of inclination.

Anton Chigurh from No Country for Old Men. A really wacky guy but boy, can he dance.

Dr. Lector. Shame on me. I'd actually like to chat with him.

Jamie Gumb from SOTL. This guy is a bit too far out there, Woody Harrolson out there. Ted Levine is a fave, btw.

More might follow. I feel like I am missing some obvious crazy.

I didn't make the cut, so to speak.

Always the bridesmaid . . . .

I think Anton Chigurh belongs in your collection.

The movie, Seven Psychopaths (2012) had some good ones, all seven are not pictured in the movie poster. I think one of the men featured in the poster, played by Collin Farrel, wasn't actually a psychopath, though I may be misremembering.

Harry Waters, played by Ralph Fiennes, in In Bruges (2008) was pretty good - but I don't think I'd want him as a friend.

Don't recall him. I cannot include person unless I can personally vouch for them. I will put him on my appointment calendar ...

Whoops ... thought of two more.

Don, you are a boor and a vulgarian, not a psychopath.

You burp at table and are doubtless flatulant . You are an unpleasant guest, not a dangerous one.

Scurry off now or I'll be forced to introduce you to Snoop.
