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
Mallory's line to Scagnetti about him being "so specific" when he asks her to pinch his nipple was improvised by Juliette Lewis on set. See more »
When Scagnetti is with the prostitute, as he starts to choke her and they roll off the bed, he is seen wearing a thong with just a string in back. When he gets up and is seen standing by the window, his underwear has changed into briefs. See more »
Mickey & Mallory Knox are without a doubt the most twisted depraved pair of shitfucks it has ever been my displeasure to lay my goddamn eyes on. I tell you these two motherfuckers are a walking reminder of just how fucked up this system really is.

... 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
