Quentin Tarantino’s True Romance full movie script is an extremely sophisticated, extended fantasy that features a nerdy shop assistant later turns into a great lover, a vindictive vigilante, last but not least, eventually, a smooth criminal.
Meanwhile, the story of True Romance full movie fell short of any kind of emotional or moral consequence: the father of the hero got killed, the heroine shot down a policeman during a drug deal gone horribly wrong, but they both set off happily into the sunset on their car, untainted by the chaos and destruction they have left behind.
Are we expected to truly believe this bloody gruesome fairytale? Are we meant to take in these self-obsessed, homicidal crazies? The answer to both of these questions is a big yes, due to the fact that the wishes being entirely fulfilled here belong to former nerdy shop assistant Quentin Tarantino himself, and he had the gift to make his fantasy with vividly-drawn characters come true, gushing out immediately iconic dialogue during breathtaking set-pieces.
The I’d fuck Elvis line that introduces to the audiences comic book clerk Clarence, the rooftop love confession and declaration by lovely Alabama, the brutal brawl with Drexl, Virgil at the motel and, of course how can we forget, the Sicilian sequence are all greatly appealing to any budding hopeful. However, what Tarantino couldn’t have noticed when he was scribbling away behind the counter at Video Archives, is that they would be relatively wonderful to show to the world and, in some cases, epic stars.
Despite already having reservation earlier, Pitt signed his name to portray a bone idle pothead flatmate; the notoriously difficult Gary Oldman hid his post-Dracula teeth away to play the role of a racially-confused pimp; and Chris Penn, Tom Sizemore and Samuel L. Jackson delightfully participated in, though, virtual bit parts. Add never-to-be-overpassed masterpiece from Christian Slater and Patricia Arquette to the blend, and voilà, something special is served. But the truly great moments in True Romance full movie have to be credited to James Gandolfini, Dennis Hopper and Christopher Walken.
Even with an outstanding screenplay and a marvelous collection of protagonists waiting patiently in line to be brought to life, any movie requires the right director, and True Romance full movie boasts an ideal expert in the unexpectedly form of Tony Scott. Who else better than the director of Top Gun to fully provide an arrested adolescents fantasy alive? Scott tends towards self-parody regarding the gloss and pace he provides to proceedings, granting the film a non-stop energy that never allows the viewers to stop and take in the absurdity of it all.
Alabama’s brilliant performance of Virgil, complete with wild scream and lovingly photographed, blood-soaked breasts, earned the movie widespread reputation and a brawl with the censors, although Scott’s way of approach to the material is best added up by another, less controversial innovative decision.
The script has Clarence’s original drug-hawking crossing with Elliot happen, unremarkably enough but in a zoo, however, the director aimed at something with a little more vigor, something with more spunk, so he place the scene on a rollercoaster. Tarantino is hyperbolizing the case when he makes comparison between Scott with underappreciated auteurs of the past (except for Douglas Sirk), but there’s no doubt he was absolutely perfect to organize this wild ride.
