Comments Natural Born Killers

  • Neil Walker

    Natural Born Killers is the only work of Quentin Tarantino that I reference directly, by name, in Drug Gang. It is also the best Quentin Tarantino screenplay to read in order to separate Tarantino the writer from Tarantino the filmmaker.The film version of Natural Born Killers, which Oliver Stone directed, ended up being very different from the original script Quentin Tarantino wrote. Quentin Tarantino has been a big influence on me as an author, and when I site him as an influence, I am not onl [...]

    Confession: I am of the opinion that Quentin Tarantino is overrated. He is a poor director and an overly self-indulgent screenwriter with a flare for dialogue. This doesn't mean that I hate his films or his screenplays, yet when I've offered this confession to Tarantino lovers in the past, they tend to assume that I do. I've enjoyed most of the Tarantino movies I've seen, but I don't understand the adoration of his work.In fact, I think the two best Tarantino movies are those made by other (dare [...]

  • Jo

    super violent! even more violent than the movie, which was hard to believe.

  • Matimate

    I was not fan of screenplays, but it changed when I got load of scripts from Quentin Tarantino´s movies. They are fun to read and sometimes the ideas, which did not get in to the movie are quite interesting and it is pity that some of them did not made it in to the screen.Story of Mickey and Mallory, version of very brutal Bonnie and Clyde types, who were roaming trough USA and brought up perverted version of psychopathic celebrity cult. At the first sight it is casual brutality but on the seco [...]

  • Don Swinney

    Brilliant surprise reading this script, not into the Oliver stone film that much but Tarantino's script is one of his best. His original version of natural born killers is socially and politically aware, which is an element rarely present in Tarantino's films that are more concerned with the culture of films rather than the culture of the real world! Natural born killers highlights the way that media can represent and often sensationalise violent crime. The film suggests to the viewer that media [...]

  • Isaac Thompson

    I love Oliver Stone's film, but Tarantino's version is even better.

  • Oliver K

    I had many mixed feelings about the story behind both the film and original screenplay of Natural Born Killers. Tarantino is in many ways a heavy influence into my personal attempt to pursue a career in the media industry. He is one of my Idols in the world if film. Now this comes to the story behind Natural Born Killers’ production and the hatred it caused between both Tarantino and Oliver Stone. The rumour was that Stone bought the screenplay and, against Tarantino’s decision, rewrote majo [...]

  • JK

    I decided to read this because I didn't realise Tarantino had written the screenplay, nor did I realise that the director, Oliver Stone, had altered the plot in such a way that it prompted Tarantino to eventually remove his name from the credits of the screenplay.I am certainly no movie buff, so I cannot comment on the comparison of the screenplay to the movie, but I did enjoy Tarantino's words. It's apparent that he's a bit of a rule-breaker, and loves to shock. I'm a sucker for a bit of distur [...]

  • Lynsey

    Absolutely loved this. Disturbing, bloody and downright sick! I always find the construction of a 'play within a play' so to speak very interesting, and the tying in of the documentary made the story all the more compelling. The concept of a 'natural born killer' and the attraction of psychosis is also very interesting, with the dearth of views expressed within the screenplay making it all the more intriguing. Its just a shame that Stone felt the need to move so far away from it in the film adap [...]

  • Bucky K.

    This book is SO much different than the movie AND so much better. I always thought NBK by Oliver Stone was a bit of a mess. This book is a lot more taunt and there aren't any weird Indian Reservation scenes which is a plus. Not a whole lot happens in the screenplay, which would be my only complaint. Still really well written and enjoyable. The first half of the screenplay happens in flashback after Mickey and Mallory are already in jail and then it catches up to their current incarceration. Inte [...]

  • Ben Winch

    Funny how an idea for a low-budget guerrilla film in the style of Man Bites Dog got turned into the bloated technicolor opus - complete with moralistic anti-media sub- (or should that be sur-?) text - we know and (in my case) revile. Oliver Stone's justification? 'Quentin, you make movies; I make films.' Read the screenplay and imagine what might have been if it hadn't fallen into the hands of the most pretentious, vainglorious director of his generation.

  • Chloe

    This script was so fun to read. I sped through it in a few hours.I love the way Quentin sets up a scene, for instance:"Mallory starts doing a slow, seductive fandango around the coffee shop. She's really cooking and smoking." - Things like this would make me laugh, but then Mallory would be brutally murdering someone and I wasn't sure what I was suppose to feel.Great script, now I must see the movie!

  • TrumanCoyote

    A wicked satire. Seems like there's always got to be a Mexican standoff in any Tarantino thing--it's become stock. But at least there's not anybody tied to a chair. And one awful line: Roger's "Man oh manis is better than Vietnam!" Anyway, too bad this script couldn't have been the movie--instead of the Oliver Stone Apocalypse.

  • BillyGuy

    The screenplay was wrote first my QT than Oliver Stone bought the rights and wrote a different screenplay , although staying to QTs main book but without a key courtroom scene but I would read all the screenplays QT had wrote bc if u read is True Romance screenplay if he would Hv wrote it , it would Hv been a total different movie and u can see how by it and all of his screenplays!!!

  • Anne Lydolf

    Exactly what you would expect from Tarantino. Blood, violence, sex and profanity. Predictable story line and dialog that sounds so fake it hurts. The kind of stuff that anyone above the age of 15 could write if they wanted.

  • Jared Busch

    WAY different than the Oliver Stone movie and yet very similar. This is so totally Tarantino whereas Stone pretty much gutted the screenplay to make room for his own shit (and i say that affectionately-- I do like the movie). It's amazing to me that they actually published this.

  • Max

    Did you feel like Oliver Stone's version was too frantic? Then perhaps you might prefer Tarantino's screenplay. But, even if you - like myself - loved Stone's version, this screenplay is still worth a read.

  • Brian

    Top drawer, but one of only two good pieces of work from q.t.

  • John

    I'm a huge fan of Tarantino, but I honestly Think that Stone's re-write was better.

  • Grindhouse Mattie

    Quite, quite different from Stone's filmed version, which of course, pissed Tarantino off, and it's a great screenplayI think they're both wonderful

  • Sophiaalmaria

    Morbidd curiousity led me to check on what Quentin's 'vision' had been before it was 'destroyed'.

  • Nunz

    When read script it doesn't work then see movie and works

  • Ian Carpenter

    For me the script for the Stone film made this waaaaay better.
