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.

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.
The scenes on the road with just Mallory and Mickey in the car really reminded me of Sailor and Lula (from Lynch's Wild at Heart). Mallory is definitely 100x crazier than Lula Fortune but they're really similar characters.
I expected absolutely nothing from this american film, and what I got is truly surprising. Natural Born Killers is a chaotic road movie that features unusual editing and camera techniques, an abusive usage of violence, a very controversial theme, horrific characters but what I loved the most is how this film shows pure insanity in every minute, Oliver Stone did a wonderful job with the prison scene.
