This week, we present the classic modern noir, True Romance, 1993. Directed by the late Tony Scott, and written by Quentin Tarantino.
Christian Slater stars as a boy who meets a girl, challenges pimp for her honor, and tries for one last score…
“Compared with other works of sadism-laced marginalia “True Romance” has a lot more consistency and a much surer sense of dark humor. (This film is closer in spirit to something like “Winter Kills,” another cameo-filled bit of craziness.) From its opening scene, in which a disconsolate comic-book salesman named Clarence Worley (Mr. Slater) and a woman sit in a bar discussing which of them would be more willing to sleep with Elvis Presley, this film sticks to its own stylistic guns, which often call for guns of the real kind. “True Romance” has occasional moments of very ugly violence, which it savors just as much as it enjoys wickedly tongue-in-cheek wisecracks and reveries.” – New York Times Review, 1993
