good messages get lost in all the raucous
From director Oliver Stone comes this flashy but frustratingly uneven and unfocused story of a sadistic, recently married couple who brutally butcher random people across the United States as part of their honeymoon. Their heinous acts and eventual apprehension attract the attention of the media and interested viewers all over the world, but instead of punishing them they would prefer to tell their life story. Well-crafted film holds your interest by making social points that are poignant, provocative, at times even satirical, but alas, they’re set in the midst of noisy and excessive action scenes that are relentless and headache-inducing, not to mention extremely violent. Cast is good, especially Harrelson and Lewis who make a good match, but they need much more sturdy direction. **
Modern Hollywood Junk Disguised As Cinematic “Cool”
At least the film’s first five minutes, and the final ten, have some measure of quality. Images of the natural world are indeed “cool”, or at least they could be, if the camera lingered on the images for more than half a second. And I loved that Leonard Cohen background music, especially “The Future”.
That said, “Natural Born Killers” is awful. With a story ostensibly about two young lovebirds that go on a savage murder spree, the film glamorizes violence; the apparent message to kids: killing is “cool” …
The B&W/color cinematography combo is flashy, gimmicky, and funky. In other words it’s cartoonish, to draw in the prepubescent crowd. The film’s commentary on the media is superficial and unconvincing. The film is all glitter and glitz, to mask the absence of substantive thematic content. When you look at the writing credits, the explanation for this sorry mess becomes clear.
Given all that “cool” photographic swagger, other film elements are rendered largely irrelevant, especially the casting and acting. Who cares who’s cast as Mickey and Mallory? When images come and go at the speed of light, who can analyze the quality of the acting? Is acting even important here? Is the dialogue important? To these last two questions I’d say probably not.
Of the Oliver Stone films that I have seen, “Natural Born Killers” is the only one that I did not like. But then is it really Stone’s movie? Judging from the huge negative energy that this film generates, I’d say the creative villain here is obvious.
