9780802134486: Natural Born Killers: The Original Screenplay

Natural Born Killers is a disturbing and brilliant indictment of violence in the media and American celebrity culture. Mickey and Mallory Knox, outlaw lovers on the run, go on a killing spree of startling viciousness -- and find themselves transformed into cult celebrities by the tabloid media. The film, directed by Oliver Stone, departed significantly from Tarantino's original screenplay, so much so that Tarantino removed his name from the screenplay credits. Now available in America for the first time, the original screenplay offers fans and film buffs of all stripes the opportunity to compare Tarantino's original vision with Stone's version of the story of Mickey and Mallory.

From the Inside Flap:

Quentin Tarantino's films have single-handedly revived and redefined American cinema, bringing to Hollywood a new energy, irony, and cool. Natural Born Killers is a disturbing and brilliant indictment of violence in the media and American celebrity culture. Mickey and Mallory Knox, outlaw lovers on the run, go on a killing spree of startling viciousness--and find themselves transformed into cult celebrities by the tabloid media. The film, directed by Oliver Stone, departed signficantly from Tarantino's original screenplay, so much so that Tarantino removed his name from the screenplay credits. Now available in America for the first time, the original screenplay offers fans and film buffs of all stripes the opportunity to compare Tarantino's original vision with Stone's version of the story of Mickey and Mallory.

"Tarantino's scripts have a way of reworking the classic genres. The plots and characters are familiar, but Tarantino's structure and dialogue transcend any category.... Tarantino writes old-fashioned movie dialogue--the kind of speeches and banter and chat that actors love to say.... Quentin Tarantino is walking, talking proof that you can violate the rules and flourish in Hollywood."--Lynn Hirschberg, Vanity Fair

"Quentin Tarantino [is] the poet laureate of Bad Boy Chic."--Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

Quentin Tarantino wrote and directed Pulp Fiction, which received the Palme d'Or at Cannes, a Golden Globe Award for Best Screenplay, and seven Academy Award nominations including Best Picture and Best Director, and won the Academy Award for Best Screenplay. He wrote and directed the critical and audience favorites Reservoir Dogs and Jackie Brown, and his screenplay True Romance was directed by Tony Scott. He also wrote and acted in the film From Dusk Till Dawn, executive produced projects including From Dusk Till Dawn, Killing Zoe, and Curdled, and starred opposite Marisa Tomei in Wait Until Dark on Broadway.

About the Author:

Born in Knoxville, Tennessee, in 1963, Quentin Tarantino was an ex-video store clerk whose debut feature Reservoir Dogs (1991) became a huge cult hit. Two earlier scripts - True Romance and Natural Born Killers - were then filmed, while his own Pulp Fiction (1994) won the Palme d'Or at Cannes and an Oscar for Best Screenplay. Subsequently, he has contributed to Four Rooms (1995) and From Dusk Till Dawn (1996), and made Jackie Brown (1998), Kill Bill (2003), Death Proof (2008) and Inglourious Basterds (2009).
