“Natural Born Killers” (1994)

There are very few films that are as controversial as this film. But just because a film is highly controversial, that doesn’t automatically make it a great film. This film’s style is so bizarre and in-your-face, that this film is impossible to not at least admire, even if there are aspects that don’t quite work (like the bizarre sitcom sequences). The film’s more grounded second half is a lot better than its rather jumbled first half, but Oliver Stone really hammers the film’s message over and over again with the subtlety of a jackhammer to the foot. This is a highly imperfect, but still mostly enjoyable film that’s worth watching once, but probably not more than that.

Rating: 3.5/5
