True Romance

True Romance (Tony Scott, 1991)

This is superb, tho I’m much more aware of Tarantino’s (he wrote it) contribution than Tony Scott’s. … And Wild at Heart has just wandered back into my consciousness. I never really knew what to make of that. With True Romance, I’m starting to work out the coordinates.

I’ve had a copy of this film (TR) for a couple of years and never bothered to put it in a machine. Its moment has come. I suppose it’s obvious to everyone else, the connexion between Lynch and Tarantino, is it?

In Detroit, a lonely pop culture geek marries a call girl, steals cocaine from her pimp, and tries to sell it in Hollywood. Meanwhile, the owners of the cocaine - the Mob - track them down in an attempt to reclaim it.

Christian Slater, Patricia Arquette, Dennis Hopper, Val Kilmer, Gary Oldman, Brad Pitt, Christopher Walken
