The controversial film I chose was the 1994 film, Natural Born Killers. This movie sparked controversy because the film depicted the media’s over glamorization of crime and violence. The film’s stars Woody Harrison and Juliette Lewis, play Mickey and Mallory Knox, a modern day Bonnie and Clyde. The movie follows the couple as they commit mass murders, starting with the murder of Mallory’s parents. The movie follows the cross country murder spree of the young lovers and the media’s overexposure of it all. The media turned them into superstars. Even in prison they were “celebrities”, able to escape, with the help of the media. This movie exposed a broken system and numerous charges came that film had inspired real crimes based on the onscreen exploits of the Knox’s.
