Natural Born Killers

Natural Born Killers


In the media circus of life, they were the main attraction.

Oscar-winning director Oliver Stone (Platoon, JFK) gave his vision of the future with this 1994 crime drama starring Woody Harrelson and Juliette Lewis as love-struck serial killers, whose murderous actions are glorified by the media that interview the sole survivor of each slaughter. Based on an original story by Quentin Tarantino, co-starring Robert Downey Jr. and Tommy Lee Jones.

  • Like all good satirists, he knows that too much realism will weaken his effect. He lets you know he's making a comedy. There's an over-the-top exuberance to the intricate crosscut editing and to the hyperactive camera. Full Review

  • Feverish, psychedelic, insanely bloody, the movie is unlike anything you've seen before. Full Review

  • Basically, the story is just a tarted up variation of the Badlands/Wild at Heart scenario, with ultra-broad swipes at media and authority figures tossed in for good measure. Full Review

  • A heavy duty acid trip, quite possibly the most hallucinatory and anarchic picture made at a major Hollywood studio in at least 20 years. Full Review

  • It is difficult to describe NBK as "good entertainment" in any classical sense (non-existent plot, some dialogue is absurdly cliched) and Stone rams home his thesis very crudely. Full Review
