True Romance

Tony Scott (Top Gun) directs a Quentin Tarantino script about a couple (Christian Slater and Patricia Arquette) fleeing from Detroit to Los Angeles with the mob and the police after them (1993). There's plenty of pizzazz on view but not always a lot of sense; as usual, Tarantino's sense of fun is infectious but fairly heartless (as in the easy way the movie shrugs off the courageous death of Slater's father, a former cop played by Dennis Hopper), and Scott's direction is slick but mechanical, which pretty much seems what's called for. With Val Kilmer, Gary Oldman, Brad Pitt, and Christopher Walken.
