Kalifornia and Natural Born Killers, released one year apart, star Juliette Lewis and feature a journalist attempting to document and define evil. One is a thriller, the other a barrage of images, a cacophony of sound, a prescient nightmare of oppressive finality. One is forgotten, the other too controversial to embrace. Drunk on shandies, we try to exhume the bodies and sift through the wreckage left in their wake.
With Silas Dell and Corbin Groothuis.
