Seemingly endless ride of obsession by the sledgehammer-subtle Oliver Stone will give you a headache by the time it is over. Self-righteously seeing himself as a commentator on the times, Stone presents the story of two renegade lovers (Woody HarrelsonJuliette Lewis) who travel the countryside committing mass murder in order to prove that violence in today’s media is not responsible for everything wrong with society. Maybe they’re right, but Stone’s extremely self-indulgent editing style is pretty much what’s wrong with this awfully boring movie. If you think you can handle Lewis acting trashy for two hours amid a mess of a movie, then by all means be my guest.

Golden Globe Award Nomination:  Best Director (Oliver Stone)
