Product Description

Amazon.ca

Oliver Stone would like to have the last word on America's media culture of voyeurism and violence, but whatever he's trying to say in this grisly, unconventional movie comes across terribly garbled. Woody Harrelson and Juliette Lewis play traveling serial killers who become television celebrities when a Geraldo-like personality (Robert Downey Jr.) turns their madness into the biggest story in the country. Stone extensively rewrote an original script by Quentin Tarantino, and he employs a mosaic of different film stocks, video, and pop pastiches to create a sense of blurred lines between visual phenomena. (The background on Lewis's character's life as an abused child, for instance, is presented as a sitcom starring Rodney Dangerfield.) But the result of these experiments is a pompous, even amateurish effort at grasping the reins of a real-life national debate. One almost wants to tell Stone to sit down and raise his hand next time if he thinks he has something to say. The controversial director would like Natural Born Killers to be nothing less than a monumental achievement, but it's one of the emptier entries in his filmography. --Tom Keogh

By Eric
Format:DVD
This true masterpiece directed by acclaimed director and writer, Oliver Stone, is avant-garde filmaking at its breaking point. The whole theme of Natural Born Killers is that the media is obsessive over violence and brutality; therefore, the extreme violence in the movie is used as a satire, not as entertainment. Definitely one of the most controversial movies ever released, especially in the 1990s when the Simpson trial, Rodney King, and the Menendez brothers became celebrity darlings because of the mass media and not because of anything credible. The acting by all the leads, especially Woody Harrelson and Juliette Lewis, is amazing. Their true love is another theme that proves vital in Natural Born Killers. It is the one and only thing that can hold people together when faced with such things as violence and a tormented childhood. The actual violence portrayed is not even that graphic after one viewing. It is the break-neck pacing and high-speed cuts that give the movie its violent intensity. If not Woody Harrelson, then definitely Juliette Lewis should have received some sort of Academy nomination, such as an Emmy, if not an Oscar.
Oliver Stone beats one in the face with this media spectacle that boasts every type of film style imaginable. Everything from 36 mm to black and white to animation to a video camera to color tinting to fast and slow motion is used in abundance with fascinating success. Roger Ebert said, "Seeing this movie once is not enough," and he is right! A must see.
Brilliant Filmaking!

3.0 out of 5 stars Sheer Chaos But An Important Message Within. June 28 2004
Format:DVD
A film that didn't turn out as I expected. Ok I knew there was going to be violence just from its title but all the killing, the swearing and the chaos never stopped. I didn't particulary enjoy this film yet it for some reason it kept me interested, I wanted to see if fate played for or against Mickey and Mallory, two of the most twisted characters ever to come to a movie screen.
There's nothing gratifying in Natural Born Killers but there is an important message on how the media nowadays glorifies violence, creating cult followers for mass murderers - what Oliver Stone manages to do is portray the negative in the 90's, particularly American pseudo-culture. You have Rodney King, O.J Simpson, Tonya Harding, The Menendez Brothers... and all these things are linked by a single medium - 90's television.
Definitely not one of my favourites, but I do appreciate why people respect this movie so much, it's well made, just not to my liking as such. What would have been interesting to see was original script writer Quentin Tarentino's version, apparently much altered from the film. As it is though, its worth a viewing.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MONUMENTAL MASTERWORK! May 16 2004
Format:DVD
NATURAL BORN KILLERS is an aggressive, in-your-face, timeless bloodsoaked masterpiece. Man, this movie NEVER gets old! The power it has the first time you see it is EXACTLY the same power you'll feel when you see it for the eight or ninth time. This is one of those movies like REQUIEM FOR A DREAM that is just ridiculously AMAZING! It's hard to believe a filmmaker who's just a regular human being like everyone else could succeed so perfectly and astonishingly in capturing and showing every single message and critique he wanted to put in the forefront. Though it's sharp, audacious, angry, unapologetic, eye-opening satirical attack on the greedy and souless disgrace that is mainstream media, and the awe-striking way in which it constantly shows in so many different ways why the media is such a lying fear-promoting monster, is what makes it such a MONUMENTALLY important film, it would be brilliant filmmaking even without it. Stone has always been one of the most energetic, ambitious, and visually creative filmmakers in America, and he uses those skills to the max in this, the standout of his amazing career. Woody Harrelson and Juliette Lewis couldn't have nailed the psycho persona, and all the different emotional and psychological wreckage that comes with it, more DEAD-ON! But the real acting standout of this film is the wonderful Robert Downey Jr.'s remarkable, raw, unforgiving, explosively hysterical turn as media scumbag Wayne Gale. He may have a Robin Leach-like accent, but don't be fooled: There is no doubt that this is motherf**king Geraldo Rivera IN EVERY POSSIBLE WAY! Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars A Cult Classic from the 90`s. May 11 2004
Format:DVD
A Hedonistic Couple (Woody Harrelson & Juliette Lewis), who murder more that fifty people, while they got married. They Kill for the thrill of it. But when the American Public and the Whole World starts a infatuation with these Outlaws. They become Stars by the Media and they become Anti-Heroes.
Directed by Two Time Oscar-Winner:Oliver Stone (Any Given Sunday, Born on the Fourth of July, The Doors) made a strange, unusual, unique, hyperkinetic style, satire film with wild performances by the two leads. Supporting Cast are Terrific also:Robert Downey Jr., Oscar-Winner:Tommy Lee Jones, Tom Sizemore, Rodney Dangerfield & more. It`s the Cast that highlighted this Compelling, Powerful, Black Comedy & Extremely Violent Film. Downey Jr. gives the Best Overacting Performance in the film (Which he steals the Show). DVD has an sharp non-anamorphic Widescreen (1.85:1) transfer & an strong-Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound. DVD has an Interesting Commentary by the Director, Six Deleted Scenes with an Altertive Edting with a Introduction by the Director & more. This is the Unrated Version added Two Minutes of Additional Footage. This Fascination Premise was Originally Written by Quentin Tarantino (Kill Bill Vol.1 & Vol.2, Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs), despite the disowned the film. When the director, the screenwriters & the producers made changes to Tarantino`s Original Screenplay. Which now Tarantino only recieves Story Credit. Still, the movie is Increasingly Challenge, Ingenious, Acclaimed Film but it`s also notorious ugly, disgusting film for some, which is not for all tastes. A disturbing film that become a Cult Classic. Screenplay by David Veloz, Richard Rutowski & Oliver Stone. Intoxicating Cinematoghaphy Work by Oscar-Winner:Robert Richardson (Oliver Stone`s JFK). Grade:A+.
