Natural Born Killers
Natural Born Killers is a disturbing and brilliant indictment of violence in the media and American celebrity culture. Mickey and Mallory Knox, outlaw lovers on the run, go on a killing spree of startling viciousness -- and find themselves transformed into cult celebrities by the tabloid media. The film, directed by Oliver Stone, departed significantly from Tarantino's original screenplay, so much so that Tarantino removed his name from the screenplay credits. Now available in America for the first time, the original screenplay offers fans and film buffs of all stripes the opportunity to compare Tarantino's original vision with Stone's version of the story of Mickey and Mallory.
"Tarantino's scripts have a way of reworking the classic genres. The plots and characters are familiar, but Tarantino's structure and dialogue transcend any category.... Tarantino writes old-fashioned movie dialogue--the kind of speeches and banter and chat that actors love to say.... Quentin Tarantino is walking, talking proof that you can violate the rules and flourish in Hollywood."--Lynn Hirschberg, Vanity Fair
"Quentin Tarantino [is] the poet laureate of Bad Boy Chic."--Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
