Nitehawk celebrates the 20th anniversary of Oliver Stone’s NATURAL BORN KILLERS with midnite screenings this August!
Mickey and Mallory are a couple of psychotic serial killer lovers who kill people with joy, inventiveness, and without remorse. Oliver Stone’s Natural Born Killers is mesmerizing to watch and that makes sense because it’s a meditation on America’s (and the world’s) obsession with sensationalist tales and the media’s complicency in giving these stories fame. We can’t look away! A commentary of its time in the mid-1990s, twenty years later we can see how much (or how little) has changed in our consumptive media circus.
