|They didn't win a Nobel Prize, throw a record fastball or travel another acceptable path to fame. What fugitive lovers Mickey and Mallory did was kill people. Lots of people. The media took care of the rest.|
Three-time Academy Award winner Oliver Stone (JFK, Platoon) delivers a powerful movie experience unlike any other: Natural Born Killers, a visually dazzling, wickedly funny slam of violence and media obsession that's "the most radical film any major studio has released since A Clockwork Orange" (Stephen Schiff, The New Yorker). As Mickey and Mallory, Woody Harrelson and Juliette Lewis portray the kind of crazy-mixed-up kids a demon has nightmares about. And Robert Downey, Jr., Tommy Lee Jones, Tom Sizemore and Rodney Dangerfield make vivid impressions in this wild ride that packs a wallop.

"...one of my all time favorite movies, and it put Oliver Stone on my list of 'Best Directors Ever'... Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"...an important film...[that's] more than an attention-grabber. It's a grenade pitched into the media tent. Jay Carr, Boston Globe
"Stone takes his characters right over the top, rubbing our noses in our own lust for excess...[this] an art of depraved catharsis. Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
