Martin Scorsese, one of the most influential living directors, guides Robert DeNiro through a creepy performance. Even though these two are reliable artists of the silver screen, this movie is a miss. It’s a vaguely Hitchcockian movie with a whole list of “wtf?” moments. Who is this movie made for? Not sure. Who is A.Ron’s ‘Nick Nolte’ impression for? Everyone.
Jason decided to tag his wife Aime back for the movies (Transformers, Toxic Avenger) she’d commissioned for him over Christmas, by having us chat about her personal favorite movie, Oliver Stone’s 1994 film, Natural Born Killers. We found this movie to be wonderfully cast (Woody Harrelson, Juliette Lewis, Robert Downey, Jr., Tommy Lee Jones, Tom Sizemore, among others) and fully insane in it’s direction, visuals, editing, and message, and thus spent about half our time talking about the film itself, and the other half pondering the human condition. Jason, Aime, hope you two crazy love birds enjoy this commission, and if either of you start talking about being the god of your world, back out of the room slowly. Make no sudden movements.
