Cast: Christian Slater, Patricia
Arquette, Dennis Hopper, Gary Oldman, Brad Pitt
Directed by Tony Scott
A young comicbook dealer falls in love and
marries a young call girl after killing her pimp. Unfortunately he
decides to steal a half million dollars worth of cocaine from his
place before leaving and now they has some seriously determined and
ruthless gangsters after them.
Finally overblown director Tony Scott
hits the right notes with a crackling script by Quentin Tarantino,
and a surprisingly effective performance by Christian Slater, all of
whom I usually dislike. Buoyed by a terrific supporting cast, the
film is rarely uninteresting and is even less predictable. No, it's
not PULP FICTION, but it isn't far off.
