True Romance

A rerelease of Tony Scott's blood-spattered black comedy, penned by Quentin Tarantino, which was originally released in the year separating Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction. Clarence Worley (Christian Slater) meets sex bomb Alabama Whitman (Patricia Arquette) at a cinema and their flirtation leads to sex. She subsequently reveals that she is a prostitute, hired as a birthday present for Clarence. He doesn't care, having fallen madly in love with Alabama, and Clarence hatches a hare-brained scheme to kill her pimp Drexl Spivey (Gary Oldman) so she can escape her life of crime. Sure enough, Clarence shoots dead Drexl and takes the pimp's bag of belongings, unaware that it contain a stash of cocaine belonging to sadistic Irish mob boss "Blue Lou" Boyle. The lovers go on the run, believing they cannot be traced back to the murder, but Boyle's associate Don Vincenzo Coccotti (Christopher Walken) is on the trail and he will not stop until he has recovered the drugs.
