I loved this so-called "repulsive" film. I think it's really funny too, in a lunatic sort of way.
How about Eric Stoltz's character gets really into drugs and doesn't fall for stupid Julie cuz she is not even in the movie. Then he and the french guy make a run for it at the end after they have robbed the bank. They kill everyone and get away and then move to some country where they do drugs all the time.
You see, then they would be real criminals.
These movies always give someone who is essentially a criminal a cheap way out. I mean if he's gonna rob the bank he should not be saved just because of some lousy blonde mousy chick who works at the bank. Another killer with a conscience...it just doesn't play well with me
In real life everyone probably would have been killed. I just hate yucky love scenes between icky sweet characters who have just killed like ten people and they are covered in gore and it's all, "Oh darling, I just love you so much!!'
Ugh it's enough to make a man hurl.
Other than that I think this movie is great.
TRUE ROMANCE is much more realistic for a good criminal ROMANCE picture. This movie works completely because the french guys performance is so over the top and crazy.
There are also funny moments like the Billy Holiday albums, their night at the jazz club, the Viking movies and the little monkey. The movie is bizarre at times but its definitely unique.
All in all, its a great film that I watch over and over again.
Jean-Hughes Anglade and Eric Stoltz are perfect together as old childhood friends out to rob a Federal bank in France on Bastille Day.
Here are the reasons why I love this movie. It really has a lot packed into it. It has a ton of humor, though much of it is dark humor. The extended drug use scene and tour of Paris must be about as close as you can come to honestly portraying being high on film. The pace of the action never slows down, and each scene consistently draws me in. There are a whole bunch of little original ideas and surprises thrown in that makes the film always interesting.
Memorable moments: the dead cat in the hallway, "riding the dragon", the monkey and Billie Holiday, viking films, Ron Jeremy, the ex-con joke, Eric pondering the next move.....
If you like anything by Tarantino, then you owe it to yourself to check this out. Honestly, I come back to watch this far more often than I do anything by QT.

You guys are nuts. Killing Zoe may not be the bank robbery film that Heat is, but it has many more aspects to it, namely gratuitous sex, drugs, and violence. Read morePublished on March 6 2004 by hello my name is
