Product Overview

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.

Reviews
ReviewSource DVD Verdict
Review Natural Born Killers is a tour-de-force; a provocative indictment against the media and our desensitized-to-violence culture. One of cinema's most controversial films, feelings run strongly both for and against it, an indication that the film met it's goal; which is to hold a mirror up to our society and see if we can bear to look at it. It's not for the faint of heart or those unwilling to engage their neurons, but if you're willing to really try to see what the film is saying you may well agree with me that this is one of the most important films of the 1990s...Natural Born Killers is, above all else, a commentary on how, as a society we condemn violence, while hypocritically glorifying it in the media. It delves deeply into the human psyche, and that is not always a comfortable experience. I think it's well worth the effort in the end, and adults should see it at least once.

Review Oliver Stone's "Natural Born Killers" might have played even more like a demented nightmare if it hadn't been for the O.J. Simpson case. Maybe Stone meant his movie as a warning about where we were headed, but because of Simpson it plays as an indictment of the way we are now. We are becoming a society more interested in crime and scandal than in anything else - more than in politics and the arts, certainly, and maybe even more than sports, unless crime is our new national sport...Stone has never been a director known for understatement or subtlety. He'll do anything to get his effect, and that's one of the things I value about him. He understands that celebrity killers have achieved such a bizarre status in America that it's almost impossible to satirize the situation - to get beyond real life...Seeing this movie once is not enough. The first time is for the visceral experience, the second time is for the meaning.

Quotes
Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com One of the most dazzling, audacious and timely films, a feverish nightmare of American culture at its worst...
Jay Carr, Boston Globe ...an important film...[that's] more than an attention-grabber. It's a grenade pitched into the media tent.
Kevin N. Laforest, Montreal Film Journal ...Stone does an amazing job...[in] one of the most visually dazzling films I've ever seen.
Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle Berserk from the outset...one of the most brilliant establishing sequences of all time...
Michael Dequina, Mr. Brown's Movies Sick, twisted, and brilliant.
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly Stone takes his characters right over the top, rubbing our noses in our own lust for excess...[this] an art of depraved catharsis.
Peter Travers, Rolling Stone ...one of my all time favorite movies, and it put Oliver Stone on my list of 'Best Directors Ever'...
