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.), host of the popular TV show “American Maniacs.”


NIXON
1995, Buena Vista Pictures, 192 min, USA, Dir: Oliver Stone

This ambitious biopic of our 37th president earned four Oscar nominations, including nods for Anthony Hopkins’ performance in the title role and Joan Allen’s supporting work as wife Pat Nixon. A nuanced portrait of Richard Nixon from his days as a young boy to his downfall in the aftermath of the Watergate break-in, the film underlines how lonely and treacherous the halls of power can become. With James Woods, Ed Harris and Paul Sorvino.
