true romance

there's not many films with any kind of tarantino involvement that i get on with. i don't know why.
true romance however is not only one that i can tolerate, i actually love it. it's mainly due to patricia arquette's alabamba who is alluring, sexy and engaging; and has some of the best lines any sexy, alluring, engaging southern belle has had.... "okey dokey doggy daddy" yum.
arquette is surrounded by a brilliant set of actors, all in small but perfectly formed roles (walken, potter, pitt, oldman, jackson etc. etc.) and christian slater is pretty good too. the scene between chris walken and dennis potter is a masterclass.
it's a cool, gorgeous love story in the same way as natural born killers... but with a style i just can't help but love. (pink cadillac anyone?)

"Amid the chaos of that day, when all I could hear was the thunder of gunshots, and all I could smell was the violence in the air, I look back and am amazed that my thoughts were so clear and true, that three words went through my mind endlessly, repeating themselves like a broken record: you're so cool, you're so cool, you're so cool."
