Synopsis


Natural Born Killers
A frenetic, bloody look at mass murder and the mass media, director Oliver Stone's extremely controversial film divided critics and audiences with its mixture of over-the-top violence and bitter cultural satire. At the center of the film, written by Stone and Quentin Tarantino, among others, are Mickey (Woody Harrelson) and Mallory (Juliette Lewis), a young couple united by their desire for each other and their common love of violence. Together, they embark on a record-breaking, exceptionally gory killing spree that captivates the sensation-hungry tabloid media. Their fame is ensured by one newsman, Wayne Gale (Robert Downey, Jr.), who reports on Mickey and Mallory for his show, American Maniacs. Even the duo's eventual capture by the police only increases their notoriety, as Gale develops a plan for a Super Bowl Sunday interview that Mickey and Mallory twist to their own advantage. Visually overwhelming, Robert Richardson's hyperkinetic cinematography switches between documentary-style black-and-white, surveillance video, garishly colored psychedelia, and even animation in a rapid-fire fashion that mirrors the psychosis of the killers and the media-saturated culture that makes them popular heroes. The film's extreme violence -- numerous edits were required to win an R rating -- became a subject of debate, as some critics asserted that the film irresponsibly glorified its murderers and blamed the filmmakers for potentially inciting copy-cat killings. Defenders argued that the film attacks media obsession with violence and satirizes a sensationalistic, celebrity-obsessed society. Certain to provoke discussion, Natural Born Killers will thoroughly alienate many viewers with its shock tactics, chaotic approach, and disturbing subject matter, while others will value the combination of technical virtuosity and dark commentary on the modern American landscape. ~ Judd Blaise, Rovi

    Oliver Stone's "Natural Born Killers" is not just a movie, it is an experience. It is a wild, dark ride that serves as a study of today's culture and it's fascination with violence. This movie is not so much about the killers, but about how the killers capture the public. The screenplay is masterfully structured with moments of vicious rage, deepness, dark comedy and powerful visual images. The film is hypnotically watchable due to the great mixing of different film formats, camera angles, colors and the breathtaking cinematography of Robert Richardson. "Natural Born Killers" is a great study of where our culture is going. Stone is a genius of cinema, one of the greatest directors there has ever been. This movie is effective, provocative, feverish and driven. It's electrifying. In fact, it's not as violent as you may think it is. It's the break neck speed it goes at and it's intense feeling. "Natural Born Killers" is both intense and brilliantly nightmarish. It's disturbing, as it should be. This serves as a slap on America's face, to wake it up. "Natural Born Killers" is a masterpiece, as Roger Ebert said: "Seeing this movie once is not enough."

    This is one of my wife and I's favorite movies, and in my opinion, one of the best movies ever made! Woody Harrelson and Juliette Lewis are at the top of thier acting careers. Brilliantly directed by Oliver Stone and based on a story by Quentin Tarantino, you can't go wrong. If you've never seen this amazing film, I highly recommend! Make sure you get the unrated director's cut to enjoy the film in its entirety. This movie will make you stand up in your living room and applaud. A definite must own!!! Also, some other great Oliver Stone movies I recommend are U-turn, The Doors, and JFK.

    I got tne original on blueray. the picture quality was awsome,just wish they could have done awy with enhancing the music volume,cause some parts you cant hear what mickey and malory are saying. Thats why i cant wait for the unrated directors cut on blueray. If its like it was on regular dvd,it will be a great blueray dvd collection. I wish Oliver Stone would have them put all 3,000 and something cuts and edits from the movie. I would love to see all of those bits and pieces of the movie

    I have always wanted an edition of Natural Born Killers with both the Theatrical and Director's Cut packaged together. Whenever a film is as divisive with the public as this was in 1994, its good to have both versions to compare and remember what all the hubbub was about originally. The Director's Cut is my preferred version, but the Theatrical IS what I paid to see 3 times in the theater way back when. Worth picking up.

    I had a mystery coupon to use and I chose to get a couple of the good ole' classic movies. I spent a great deal of time digging through the bin to see if I could find a great movie and this is one of them. It has great actors and intense action to keep me interested throughout the movie. Only for mature adults!

    I loved and 'lived'(I and my first bf cosplayed as Mallory and Mickey Knox at comic con in San Diego one year)this film.... Juliette Lewis is so versatile and amazing in this strong female role... Woody H. breaks so many acting barriers violently and smashes through the stereotypes to reality of a serial killer and reveals so many complex layers...

    Natural Born Killers is a very symbolism heavy movie. I can definitely say that it's not for everyone but it's typical Tarantino story. homages and montages. it can run a little long, but it's a different kind of movie that requires a specific taste. The case is very well made, the dvd/bluray holder is a little... weird but it does its job perfectly.
