Mickey Knox and Mallory Wilson aren't your typical lovers - after killing her abusive father, they go on a road trip where, every time they stop somewhere, they kill pretty well everyone around them. They do however leave one person alive at every shootout to tell the story and they soon become a media sensation thanks to sensationalized reporting. Told in a highly visual style. Written by
The Drug Store scene was filmed in an Albuquerque building that was a real drug store that had closed just prior to filming. The original fixtures and pharmacy area were still in the store, making set up very easy. The sign above the door was added for the movie and was still there months after filming ended. The building is now a Hobby Lobby. 1000 green fluorescent bulbs were used to light the scene. See more »

What about your father how did he die? You were only ten years old and there's a lot of speculation.
I didn't kill my father and I don't want to talk about it!
[starts to get angry and makes as if to jump up]
[leaps to his feet]
[to everyone around him]
It's alright! It's alright!
[turns back to Mickey]
We'll just move on to something else.

I wouldn't buy this film without renting it. I was only able to watch ten minutes of it and half was on fast forward. Someone here said that he bought it and has watched it 20 times! I dunno. This movie seems sloppy and all over the place. If you want to get the same effect and not be as disappointed as I was, double up on "Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer" and "Wild at Heart" (Nicholas Cage and Laura Dern). The cinematography, entertainment, and impact, of those two films is far better than NBK.
