    6/100

    Comprehensively catastrophic, and a deliciously nutritious outing for my cynical bones. How can something that went through so many channels and filters be allowed through the gates in this state? I’m curious if there was any pride in the end product, or if it was like dropping a dead fish in water, praying for it to magically swim.

    At a glance, Natural Born Killers has the potential to mislead. What seems like a full-blooded thriller packed with gratuitous brutality is in fact more profound; more intelligent than what its exterior and hateful critics may imply. It's personality is satirical, predominantly lampooning the media for their embracement of serial killers and near veneration of the activities they conduct - all done for the sake of ratings. Oliver Stone is clearly a staunch combatant of such behaviour and as we…
