In Detroit, a lonely pop culture geek marries a call girl, steals cocaine from her pimp, and tries to sell it in Hollywood. Meanwhile, the owners of the cocaine - the Mob - track them down in an attempt to reclaim it.
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
Robert Downey, Jr. spent time with Australian television shock-king Steve Dunleavy to prepare for the role of Wayne Gale, and when he came back with an Australian accent, the filmmakers decided to go with it, and Gale became an Australian. See more »

Their subsequent trial turned into a sick, pathetic circus. The trial of Mickey and Mallory Knox was SUCH an event, that it made the crime spree that preceded it pale by comparison. The nation caught Mickey and Mallory fire!

When the psychopaths Mickey Knox (Woody Harrelson) and Mallory Wilson (Juliette Lewis) meet each other, they immediately fall in love with each other. Mickey kills Mallory´s abusive father and uncaring mother and they go on road trip, committing crimes and killing cops and ordinary people. When they finally are arrested, the sensationalized journalist Wayne Gale (Robert Downey Jr.) promotes an interview in the penitentiary with Mickey. What will happen next?
"Natural Born Killers" is a film written by Quentin Tarantino and directed by Oliver Stone with stylized violence. The love story of the psychopaths Mickey and Mallory has bizarre characters and a criticism to the yellow journalism. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "Assassinos por Natureza" ("Killers by Nature")
