Is that a really clever/obscure joke on Thus spake Zarathustra (as in Nietsche's book Also sprach Zarathustra the title of which Strauss borrowed for the music used in the movie, Zarathustra being aka Zoroaster the founder of the the first great monotheistic faith)? If so, please explain.... If it's a typo/****** iPad autocorrect, sorry never mind.

Slightly off thread, but tried to watch Seven Psychopaths while pissed a few weeks ago. I like the director, and CF is an arsehole but was brilliant in "In Bruges" - cast was awesome, should I watch again or is it pish?
