Natural Born Killers
Both with Juliette Lewis in, both in which she plays her role perfectly. These are what I would call proper serial killer movies, rather than the Jason Freddy rubbish horror stuff. These delve into the psyche of a movie killer.
Kalifornia isn’t a great movie. Some of the acting is really poor (Forbes), some of it is too dry (Duchovny, but I like his voice) but some of it is perfect (Pitt). The storyline is filled with irony and rather predictable plot lines and conclusions, but nonetheless is still enjoyable to watch – if only for Brad Pitt’s performance and his anecdotes when killing – his non serious approach to everything. I won’t talk about the ending, but the VERY ending is in my eyes perfect.
Natural Born Killers, a story by Tarantino, directed by Stone. This movie is an instant favourite of mine. It is BRILLIANT. The style, the monologue, the controversy, the storytelling, the plot, the Leonard Cohen soundtrack, it’s all just astonishing. Mallory’s “Am I beautiful now?” fight scenes really enthralled me and I was in awe of the passion Lewis gave to her character. A character that was perfectly matched by Woody Harrelson as Mickey. It’s hard to decide where to start picking this movie apart – the ruthless killing, the media & tv influences, the drugs, the brutal childhoods, the prison riots, the bent coppers, the natural killing desire. This movie oozes with greatness. I will watch it again, soon. 10/10
