... asks Woody Harrelson`s character Mickey and was the one and only time in the movie I found myself agreeing with him . Not that NATURAL BORN KILLERS is a stupid movie - It`s worse than a stupid movie , it`s an egotistical one as Oliver Stone shows through one movie how many directing styles he learned at film school . It goes without saying that as a director he fails with this , the only exceptions being " The Mallory home life sit com " and the title sequence that features a pumping soundtrack , but it`s saying something when the impact of the film is down more to a Patti Smith track than the director . Oh and can anyone explain any contextual reasons for all the differing styles ?
For a film that claims to be a satire the script lacks any type of intelligence , wit , or even satire , a problem I would have thought in a satirical film . The script can best be described as " BONNIE AND CLYDE on acid " which probably suits the " MTV on cocaine " type of directing . What`s the subtext ? Everyone has the capacity to be a killer ? Yeah like I`ve never seen an edition of the news or seen quiet guys - Girls too - go violently mad after a few drinks . Yeah I managed to work out man is a noble savage devoid of nobility and that was before I saw this OTT crap . There also seems to be a bit of a flaw to the structure , you know that oft shown clip of people around the world praising Mickey and Mallory ? I was totally convinced before seeing NBK this scene would take place at the very end of the movie ( Logically it should ) but it takes place roughly 25 minutes into the running time
As for the controversy the only death NATURAL BORN KILLERS was responsible for was killing Oliver Stone`s career , but he`s only got himself to blame
