True Romance is one of my favorite movies! Before I became a QT fan I loved that movie… then once I started looking for stuff by Quentin I then knew why I loved the movie so much… the character development, the story is classic QT. And the climax… when the mob, the police, and Clarence’s gang all collide that was so beautifully written and acted so well… I was sitting tense through the whole thing not knowing how it was going to end.
But my favorite scene of the whole movie is Chris Walken and Dennis Hopper. They way Dennis’s character so subtley decided that since he was going to die, he would leave his killers with a mind-fuck that would they would never forget. Two superb actors, blessed with the perfect scene.
I also liked when Clarence went to the restroom during the “big deal” and Elvis was talking to him, his usual confidence and ego boost stuff and Elvis actually checked his gun for him… I thought that was hillarious. It had genuinely funny moments, and it was tragic and heart-warming at the same time. It is an all-around good film.
I will definitely pick up the DVD, I read from the review posted on this site that there are LOTS of extras, I cant wait to see them, I’m esp. interested in the alt. ending that Quentin and the director had such different opinions on while filming.
