Lovers Mickey and Mallory Knox, both products of abusive upbringings, murder Mallory’s lecherous parents and go on a cross country killing spree, which becomes a media sensation in this controversial and violent satire.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
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.
I don't know how he did it. Normally Oliver Stone is so heavy handed. Here he took that weakness and made it a strength. He went to la la land. He was truly free for that moment. This also was when Downey wasn't as full of himself as he is now. Great casting and performances. "The whole world's comin' to an end, Mal!"
probably one of the most heinous film ever made (i can't understand why some movies become "cult movies", when you don't have anything good to say about it. worst than hysterical story is an hysterical camera)
