NATURAL BORN KILLERS
1994, Warner Bros., 118 min, USA, Dir: Oliver Stone

This satirical look at the depths to which tabloid media will sink to deliver a good crime story was named one of the 10 most controversial films in history by Entertainment Weekly. As serial killers/lovers Mickey and Mallory (Woody Harrelson and Juliette Lewis) blaze an exceptionally gory trail across the Southwest, they are pursued by an enraged police detective (Tom Sizemore) and elevated to folk heroes by Wayne Gale (Robert Downey Jr.), the host of the popular TV show “American Maniacs.”


THE THIN RED LINE
1998, 20th Century Fox, 170 min, Dir: Terrence Malick

Director Terrence Malick’s adaptation of James Jones’ novel is an intensely poetic story of paradise lost in the South Pacific during WWII, a cosmic vision of man at war with himself and nature. With a mind-boggling cast including Sean Penn, Adrien Brody, Jim Caviezel, George Clooney, Woody Harrelson, Elias Koteas, Nick Nolte and John C. Reilly.


OUT OF THE FURNACE
2013, Relativity Media, 116 min, USA, Dir: Scott Cooper

The gritty new thriller from director Scott Cooper (CRAZY HEART) stars Christian Bale as Russell Baze, a steel mill worker in a declining Rust Belt town. When his younger brother (Casey Affleck) runs afoul of a crime ring and vanishes, local police prove ineffectual, and Russell embarks on a dangerous quest for justice. The top-flight cast includes Woody Harrelson, Forest Whitaker, Willem Dafoe, Zoe Saldana and Sam Shepard.
