The story behind this change in directors was chronicled in the book "Killer Instinct" written by producer Jane Hamsher. See more »

I am slowly trying to make my way through all the films that are either considered classics or ground-breaking and on the basis that "Natural Born Killers" was ground-breaking I rented it. I am not somebody who is ordinarily shocked or distressed by violent films, I sat through "The Cook, the Thief, his Wife and her Lover" and "A Clockwork Orange" quite happily but I really objected to this film. It seemed to be glamourising the media violence it was, purportedly, satirising. I would advise caution if you are thinking about watching this film and would agree with the comment on the main page that it is certainly inadvisable for children. I encourage films that push the boundaries but found this tasteless.
