Synopsis


Kalifornia
This debut feature film from music video director Dominic Sena is a romp through the world of serial killing, which in its bleakness and moral bankruptcy looks backwards to Terrence Malick's Badlands and forward to Oliver Stone's Natural Born Killers. Michelle Forbes plays hip, Mapplethorpe-esque photographer Carrie Laughlin, who wants to move to California for a fresh start. Her boyfriend, Brian Kessler (David Duchovny), is a writer who has an idea for a new book, a travel tome on the sites of serial murders. The two plan to go on a cross-country tour of the murder sites, with Brian writing the commentary and Carrie taking the pictures. But they need a couple to share the driving expenses; enter Grayce (Brad Pitt) and his girlfriend, Adele (Juliette Lewis, in a warm-up for her role in Natural Born Killers). Grayce is an ex-con looking to jump parole, while Adele is a childlike naïf. Soon the four are off to California, but the yuppie couple doesn't realize how close they are to their serial killer topic. It seems Grayce has murdered his landlord before their trip and bodies begin piling up disturbingly behind them as they make their way across the country. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi

    This is one of Brad Pitt's early movies. Although it is not an amazing movie in itself, it is an absolutely amazing acting job by Pitt. He does not play the hero type like normal. He is a stone-cold killer who is absolutely demonic. You have never seen Pitt in a role like this. Watch this movie for the acting.

    If you're in the mood for a creepy serial killer movie this is the DVD for you. This movie features Brad Pitt like you've never seen him before as a sloppy looking killer. Don't expect the gorgeous Brad you're used to, but David Duchovny looks pretty hot in this movie.

    Brad Pitt's best performance by far. Duchovney & Juliette nail it also. Great story.
