Natural Born Killers

With “Future” by Leonard Cohen as the soundtrack. It was very hard to watch this sequence, but I do love Leonard Cohen! I had to admit that this was some great artistic work that Oliver Stone did in this movie, like he does in nearly all of his fantastic movies. There is beauty here amidst all the horror. Screenplay by Quentin Tarantino.
What was the point of this movie anyway? Was he trying to make some sort of a point? Apparently Stone was making some sort of a statement about the media glorifying violence for marketing purposes.
After this movie came out, a disturbing number of copycat crimes were committed by various maniacs. Some of these were famous incidents like the Columbine Massacre and the Heath School Shootings. 30 people were killed and 27 wounded in these incidents in total. A number of lawsuits were brought against Stone for provoking the crimes with his movie but all were tossed on free speech grounds.
