The misadventures of Mickey and Mallory: outcasts, lovers, and serial killers. They travel across Route 666 conducting psychadelic mass-slaughters not for money, not for revenge, just for kicks. Glorified by the media, the pair become legendary folk heroes; their story told by the single person they leave alive at the scene of each of their slaughters. –IMDb
Oliver Stone has become known as a master of controversial subjects and a legendary film maker. His films are filled with a variety of film angles and styles, he pushes his actors to give Oscar-worthy performances, and despite his failures, has always returned to success.
After dropping out of Yale University, Oliver Stone became a soldier in the Vietnam War. Serving in two different regiments (including 1rst Cavalry), he was introduced to The Doors, drugs, Jefferson Airplane, and other things that defined the sixties.

I loved the soundtrack.
Another film that stands the test of time, crawling from the mid-90s as an over-zealous, over-edited, highly aggressive piece of MTV-era Americana. Say what you will about Oliver Stone, but this film is a great example of his eye for America (and experimentation). The multiple film formats cut together is wonderfully busy, and his play on true crime shows is outstanding - with psychotic performances all around.
