Everyman Road Movies at KXFS
Mickey (Harrelson) and Mallory (Lewis) are white-trash low-lifes who get their kicks from killin' just about anybody who gets in their way. Their antics are covered by scumbag talk-show host Wayne Gale (Downey) whose reports turn the pair into folk heroes. Trailing hype and tabloid hysteria in its wake, Stone's film is at once a phenomenon and unremarkable. Still, there can be no doubt this film is technically extraordinary; with the director resorting to a frantic collage of film and video, b/w and colour, back- and front-projection, fast and slow motion to develop his thesis that crime and violence are fanned by sensationalist media attention. Screened as part of Everyman Cinema's Road Movies residency at the King's Cross Filling Station. (18)
