distracted by natural born killers [1994] directed by oliver stone hadn't seen it before lots of cartoon-like violence about two really fucked up people the tone of the movie is a parody of u.s. celebratory culture and the collapse of the family unit hard to boil it down to an essence when every other frame of this flick flashes day-glo light and bomb

My favorite part of that film was the part with the laughtrack. I've never been able to watch an sitcom since without realizing how utterly abusive and cruel the so-called humor is.

you mean the beginning with rodney dangerfield, i gather. that was ultra creepy with the laugh track. the entire film was populated by grotesques such as the physical appearance and mannerisms of tommy lee jones and robert downey jr. i got what oliver stone was doing but i'm not sure i bought into his techniques. i don't believe the movie is almost 20 years old and last night was the first time i saw it.
