Brilliant - True Romance review by GI

Spoiler Alert
10/04/2021

The Tarantino film that Tarantino didn't direct. But as the writer his style and influence are all over it and it's often thought to be one of his directorial efforts, it is though one of Tony Scott's best films. Interestingly it struggled to find an audience on initial release probably because of the slightly misleading title and a struggle in marketing the film. However it has since gained a massive following and is something of a cult movie. It is a romance at heart with Christian Slater's geeky Clarence (clearly Tarantino wrote a lot of himself into the character) meeting hooker Alabama (Patricia Arquette) and they both fall in love. When Clarence tries to extricate Alabama from the clutches of her pimp, Drexl (a magnificent Gary Oldman) he finds himself in possession of a suitcase full of cocaine and they head off to LA to sell it, but the mob and eventually the police end up on their tail. The film is littered with memorable characters including Dennis Hopper as Clarence's father, a malevolent Sicilian mafia boss played by Christopher Walken, Brad Pitt as a dopehead, James Gandolfini as a mobster and an early role for Samuel L. Jackson. You'll also spot Val Kilmer if you pay close attention. The script is witty, the violence typical comic book style found in most Tarantino films with a dramatic shoot out in the film's climax. Arquette is beautiful and arguably in her best role and certainly Slater has never topped this film. Yes it's all very adult, over the top and brilliantly humorous and very entertaining so if by some small chance you've never seen this then it's a must see, you will not regret it.

A slow day for Tarantino - True Romance review by IanF

Spoiler Alert
03/09/2020

A nice idea for a thriller with two innocents abroad meeting, and mostly getting the better of, terrible gangsters. Rather slow until the massive shoot out at the end. Bit dated now.
