Overview

True Romance

Quentin Tarantino scripted this wild and wooly blend of action and dark comedy, which reached theaters a year before his breakthrough hit Pulp Fiction. Clarence Worley (Christian Slater) is a well-meaning but socially unskilled comic-shop clerk whose idea of a big night out is catching a Sonny Chiba triple-feature at a downtown grindhouse. Clarence is celebrating his birthday in just such a manner when he meets a beautiful girl named Alabama (Patricia Arquette), and it's love at first sight for both of them. Clarence's enthusiasm isn't dampened much when he discovers Alabama is actually a prostitute who was paid by his boss to bump into him; she's only been in the business for a few days, and is more than eager to give up streetwalking to be with Clarence. However, Alabama is certain her pimp, Drexl (Gary Oldman), will not be happy; he's an ill-mannered sort with mob connections and a fondness for violence. Chivalrous Clarence offers to break the news to Drexl and collect her belongings, but he doesn't tell her he also plans to kill Drexl while he's there; a melee breaks out that leaves Drexl and his henchmen dead. Clarence grabs a suitcase that he thinks contains Alabama's clothes, but he discovers it instead holds a half million dollars' worth of cocaine. The couple hits the road for California, planning to sell the dope and enjoy the good life in South America with the proceeds, but soon a group of very unhappy underworld characters are after them, as well as the police. True Romance also stars Dennis Hopper as Clarence's father, Christopher Walken as a mob boss who wants his cocaine back, Brad Pitt as a cheerful stoner, and Val Kilmer as the ghost of Elvis Presley.

The beauty of this film is the superb cast that is able to give the perfect performance for a Tarantino script. Especially the British Gary Oldman who is marvelous in an over-the-top performance.

With a cast that includes Dennis Hopper, Christopher Walken, Brad Pitt and especially written by legendary filmmaker Quentin Tarantino, True Romance stands above and beyond most of the films of the 90's. When shy Clarence meets his call-girl wife Alabama, they decide to leave their old life behind. However, first he must right some wrongs involving drug-dealer/pimp played by Gary Oldman. This, of course, doesn't go as planned and they go on the run to California with a suitcase full of drugs. While Director Tony Scott's view does the film justice, the stand out element is the witty dialogue. The screenplay produced by Tarantino is virtually unmatched. Another important point, is the way the actors effortlessly flow off one another, simply adding to its authenticity. This movie should definetly be part of your collection.

I don't really know what's so endearing about this movie, Slaters laid back style or Arquettes depth of character... One thing's for sure, you'll watch the movie over and over again. Its one of those movies that you just don't want to end (like Pulp Fiction for me). I can honestly say that its as fresh the first time you watch it as it is the 20th. Now that's what I call a good movie!

This film has it all. It has sex, drugs, violence, romance, and a killer score. Christian Slater, who plays the main character Clarence, pulls off the very best performance of his career, and Patricia Arquette who plays Alabama, the hooker with a heart of gold, was worthy of an Academy Award. The cast, which includes film greats Dennis Hopper, Christopher Walken, Gary Oldman, and Brad Pitt, speaks for itself. One of the greatest tough guy scenes of all time occurs between Hopper, who plays Clarence's father, and Walken, the gangster chasing after the newlyweds Clarence and Alabama. The dialogue in that scene is darkly hilarious and is without question one of the finest moments in film history. Another hghlight of film is the hotel room scene between Alabama and one of the gangsters chasing them. By the end of the graphically violent scene, you want to take the shotgun from Alabama's bloody hands and shake it over your head as well. This underrated film is the best thing to happen to the love story since Bonnie and Clyde. A definite must see, and a cult classic.
