At times with this movie the art overpowered the film.

Profane, hallucinogenic, and wickedly satirical, Oliver Stone's Natural Born Killers mainlined a message from hell (a.k.a. modern America, as seen by Stone) into mall theatres and multiplexes. [Blu-Ray]

Oliver Stone does an amazing job behind the camera, and the editing is totally delirious: it's one of the most visually dazzling films I've ever seen.

This is one of my all time favorite movies, and it put Oliver Stone on my list of 'Best Directors Ever,' right along with Stanley [Kubrick].

Stone can't make a point subtly -- and yes, even a brutal, hallucinogenic movie like this one would benefit from some subtlety.

Seeing this movie once is not enough. The first time is for the visceral experience, the second time is for the meaning.

Berserk from the outset, Natural Born Killers lunges for our collective viscera in its opening sequence (surely one of the most brilliant establishing sequences of all time) and never lets go for the next two hours.

Don't miss this and it's brilliance on so many different levels; film making, acting, directing, editing, soundtrack and of course the whole twisted backbone of the thing -- Quentin Tarantino's script.

NBK brilliantly leaves the attentive viewer with more questions as to whether they're part of the solution or the problem itself.

Natural Born Killers is basically a flawed masterpiece, but at least gives its message across.

It can easily be said that "Natural Born Killers" ranks among the worst films in Oliver Stone's filmography. It's an incompetently-made attempt at drilling home an incredibly simplistic point that anyone can learn from turning on the news.

It plays like a mad dash across the cerebral mind-field in search of the right mood, and fails drastically at finding one.

Bloody, violent, sexually explicit. Mature teens+.

Natural Born Killers finds Stone throwing everything against the wall to see what sticks.
