True Romance is one of those movies that I think deserves way more attention and credit than it probably did. Granted it did well and people liked it, I just think it deserved more. When you have two nearly polar opposites collaborating on one movie it can be a huge disaster. However, taking Tony Scott’s directing style and Quentin Tarantin’s writing style worked out incredibly well in this movie.
Oh and not to mention there was a sick cast. This was back in Christian Slater’s popular days. And who can forget Brad Pitt’s role as a pot head, Bronson Pinchot’s appearance and of course Christopher Walken as a Sicilian gangster. For those that don’t know the movie here’s a quick summary.
Clarence (Slater) marries hooker Alabama, steals cocaine from her pimp, and tries to sell it in Hollywood, while the owners of the coke try to reclaim it. Granted that’s a 1-2-3 story, you get the idea. After all we have the trailer after the jump anyway. See this movie if you haven’t already….
Can’t say I like the music here. Great movie though..
