Fantastic film, the 2 main actors (Harrelson and Lewis) play great parts. My only gripe is the film information. It's a shame amazon seems to think the starring characters are the male lead and the two supporting males actors (Starring: Woody Harrelson, Balthazar Getty, Tommy Lee Jones). Great job. My indignation would be more eloquent had I not been drinking tonight, as it happens I'm fuelled on the self righteousness of the absolutely badgered.

When I first saw 'Natural Born Killers' twenty five years ago I think I merely liked it as fairly dumb, confrontational, entertainment. I'm sure I must have caught som of the messages and the clever direction but I couldn't remember much about that watching it in 2020.

That could be said to be a fault of the film. You have to watch it more than once otherwise all the remains in the memory is the over the top performances from everyone, the throw everything at the screen punk-prog-glam rock direction and violence. Watch it again and you notice the sometimes subtle humour behind the histrionic acting, the clever way the film hold together and tells its narrative despite the short attention span cut and paste of the editing and the way the film makes us look at ourselves, what we watch and how we respond.

Unfortunately, that last point which is likely Oliver Stone's main aim, will have been missed by many one time viewers unless that is just me and I am finding out that my younger self was really a psychopathic voyeur of violence?

Stylish and provocative, Natural Born Killers has been accused of encouraging copycat crimes, though anyone dumb enough to emulate this film was already on the edge, in my opinion. Roaming serial killers Mickey (Woody Harrelson) and Mallory (Juliette Lewis) aren't idealised; director/co-writer Oliver Stone paints them as standard psychos, full of arrogance and self-righteousness, spouting crap pseudo-philosophy like Charles Manson. When Mickey says "that's poetry" to Mallory's inane cliched statements I was amused, not left in awe of them, and amusement's the reaction Stone wants, I think.
Natural Born Killers is at heart a (very) dark comedy; the only reason Mickey and Mallory might seem sympathetic to some is because the other major characers are just as vile, if not even more hypocritical. Celebrity cop Jack Scagnetti's (Tom Sizemore) an evil psychopath who's no different to his prey, prison warden Dwight McClusky's (Tommy Lee Jones) a soulless fascist and TV journalist Wayne Gayle's (Robert Downey Jr.) a two-faced worm. The only likeable people are a couple of Native Americans and an ageing cop whose partner Mickey and Mallory kill.
In a segment designed like a sitcom, where shocking dialogue's scored with a hollow laugh track, Mickey and Mallory murder Mallory's abusive dad (Rodney Dangerfield) and ignorant mum (Edie McClurg). They then, after a blood bond ritual, go on a killing spree which ends when they're captured by Scagnetti. Their adventures are intercut with TV footage of journalists and citizens discussing them; they become cultural icons, treated like media personalities by a world as diseased as they are.
Dozens of styles, from black-and-white to single colour, fanatastical landscapes and even vaguely sci-fi images, like walls which double as TV screens, tell the story in a dizzyingly schizophrenic manner. This can sometimes obscure the plot, but overall it's visually sumptous and fascinating.
The film struggled with censorship, which is strange because even its director's cut isn't any more and in some cases less violent than others of its time. The Silence of the Lambs won four Oscars, and that could be seen as having slightly stronger content (skinning, semen-tossing). Maybe the problem was that Mickey and Mallory are easier to imitate than Buffalo Bill or Hannibal Lecter. Novelist John Grisham weighed in on the film's alleged amorality when a friend of his was killed by two teenagers who'd watched it. Though I can empathise with Grisham's loss, someone who's first novel, A Time to Kill, implicitly endorsed vigilantism, while providing a thriller which depicts child rape, should watch what he says. Ultimately, to claim that Natural Born Killers incites murder is childish and naive. Stone's characters are selfish, narcissistic and desensitised. They're human cockroaches, and if you want to be like them you're a cockroach too.

Ambitious but headache inducing film.
Verified purchase
As much as I wanted to enjoy this film (solid premise and big Harrelson fan) this film was almost unwatchable to me. It has a bizarre and severely dated visual style that adds little to the film and repeatedly hurt my head with its obsurdity - others may enjoy this but not for me. Being told that this film horrified some with its violence I frankly found it underwhelming and seemed to played for cheap shocks more than anything else. All in all this is an ambitious but ultimately poorly put together film; the many ideas injected into it either cannot merge or simply the director has failed to do so, would highly recommend avoiding but you may want to tick it off that bucket list - I certainly know I did.

Dull arty comic book movie

watched this when it first came out and now seems so much worse now. Tried to be smart and different, ended up being a mess and irritating, much like Robert Downey Jnrs performance

Natural Born Killers (VHS)
Verified purchase
This is a very powerful movie and not for the faint of heart. It follows the story of two young people who's love is so strong that nothing in the world could possibly break it. However, due to there up bringing's and back ground history, they are killers and they really don't see anything wrong with that. Bitter sweet and very violent, this movie shows just how strong love can be and that even the most violent of people can still find love, even if it is a bit twisted. A movie for adults only as it is disturbing in places.

Natural Born Killers Directors Cut
Verified purchase
Had to get this as my ex pinched my last copy but wasn't that upset as it was the theatrical cut and was in an old snap back cover Warner Bros used years ago. This version of one of Oliver Stone's best film's is far superior to the theatrical cut, is in correct ratio, a few good extras and 5.1 DD. Disc arrived in excellent condition and earlier than was stated in the email so happy dayz ☺

Fun, challengeing and explosive work of art.
Verified purchase
A well made and disturbing work that include cartoons as a form of self identification. Good performances hold the film together if the plot become a little weak at the end. This is challenging and explosive film about how violence is feared , used all the time in USA and the casual attitudes towards it. Not for the faint hearted.
