The Eccentric Gentlemen of SEVEN PSYCHOPATHS: Tom Waits

Seven Psychopaths premieres tonight, featuring the talents of many an eccentric artist and performer, including, singer/songwriter/raconteur, Tom Waits, a man of many talents and singular taste.

Tom Waits performs "Eggs and Sausage" in 1976.

A scene from Waits' Brechtian musical, The Black Rider, that makes me think that Waits would make a great Devil in any film.

Waits' "Jockey Full of Bourbon" opens Jim Jarmusch's Down By Law. Wait's starred in the movie along with John Lurie, Ellen Barkin and Roberto Begnini.

There's been speculation that Tom Waits was an inspiration for Heath Ledger's Joker. They both like a good story, it's true.

And if that isn't enough, here's an interview with Waits on NPR.

SEVEN PSYCHOPATHS' world premiere is tonight!
Fri., Sept. 7 11:59PM:  RYERSON THEATRE

Repeat screening:
Sat., Sept. 8, 3:30PM:  SCOTIABANK 1
