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

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+.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not a slasher flick Feb. 15 2004
Format:DVD
This movie was released in 1994. I realized immediately that I did not want to see it -- the name alone was enough to put me off. But then, nine years later, I saw it after all, and I was blown away! This is no crude slasher flick, it's an indescribable mixture of film style and cultural criticism, a delight for the eye and the mind.
I won't repeat what others have said about the movie's depiction of media celebrity. The reason I'm writing this review is to point out another institution that takes its lickings: the family. Mickey and Mallory are a sweetheart couple, like something from a 1960s high school movie, and they'll grow into the ideal nuclear family, riding off with the kiddies in the Winnebago. It's the American dream! Just ignore all the corpses they leave behind themselves...
The truth is that people who were abused as children tend to abuse their own children. But we know that Mickey and Mallory won't do that -- they'll break the cycle of abuse. They're heros, who will rise above their origins! What could be more true-blue American? Just ignore all the corpses they leave behind themselves...
Yes, this is a movie about Family Values. Just ignore all the corpses...

5.0 out of 5 stars Lost in a World of Ghosts... Jan. 26 2004
Format:DVD
"Natural Born Killers" is Oliver Stone's "take-no-prisoners" assault on the media that is cinematic eye-candy to the teeth. It's an uneasy satire to watch, but it is an extremely effective film that is both thrilling and funny. Many people loath this movie, as it is not an easy one to take. I feel there's a lot of ugly truths hidden within, and those truths aren't very easy to accept for most. For those who are aware of how manipulative and hypocritical the media world can be are in for one crazy and unforgiving ride that has no limits.
Mickey and Mallory Knox may appear to be your ordinary couple, but they aren't. In fact, the two are notorious serial killers who love to get their adrenaline pumping by destroying the lives of others. The media has pretty much made the villainous duo heroes to the public, as they can't get enough of them. They headline every single news program with absolute pride. As the two continue their bloody rampage through the states, the public is watching every step of the way with bloodshot eyes.
The structure of the film is usually what turns people off from it, but I thought it was all executed perfectly. It doesn't follow your basic plot structure in the same way most films do. We're presented with the characters, the conflict, resolution, etc.--but it's pieced together in random spots as if you were surfing through different channels on the TV. This is extremely effective for what Stone is trying to convey. It's a disturbing film because it actually sheds light on something most people don't want to fess up to, and that is the glorification of criminals and violence. I found it to be a breath-taking satire, as well as an outstanding film all together.
