"Seven Psychopaths," the new violent comedy from "In Bruges" writer-director Martin McDonagh, is the latest 2012 film to take full advantage of Los Angeles. (See also: "Celeste and Jesse Forever" and "Smashed.")

In this new feature on the film, debuting exclusively here at HuffPost Entertainment, production designer David Wasco and cinematographer Ben Davis explain how "Seven Psychopaths" utilized Los Angeles to its fullest. Wasco has experience in crime thrillers set in the City of Angels -- he previously worked with Quentin Tarantino on "Pulp Fiction," a film many are referencing when discussing "Seven Psychopaths." (Wasco is also a frequent collaborator of Wes Anderson.)

Watch the feature above, and check out the trailer for "Seven Psychopaths" below.

Here's the plot synopsis:
