I will begin by stating that this is not a movie that everyone will like. With that being said, I must say that I indeed LOVED this movie! Christian Slater has always been one of my favorite actors ever since I saw him in Heathers. I feel like he was completely commited to his character in that film and he once again shows that same commitment to the character of Clarence. This character is rough around the edges, but genuinly has a good heart...murder and drug selling aside! Patricia Arquette also gives a believable performance as Alabama, a call girl who clearly doesn't belong in the profession but holds certain survival qualities that lead her into that seedy world. Gary Oldman, Dennis Hopper, Christopher Walken, Val Kilmer and Brad Pitt (who particularly gives a very memorable and funny performance as Floyd the stoner) round out this all-star cast! This is a gritty movie that contains believable events (and some unbelievable ones as well). What else would you expect from a script that was written by Quentin Tarantino? This particular version is PACKED with extras including several different commentaries, one of which is given by Christian and Patricia. Though theirs is not the most informative when it comes to behind the scenes talk, it is interesting listening to them converse back and forth about scenes in the movie (especially if you know the history that they were romantically linked in real life...you must wonder if it was awkward for them to sit together and watch their steamy love scene after all that time had passed). If you're into weird, violent, action packed love stories, then this is most definitely the film for you! Just be sure to watch it after the kiddies are in bed because it is NOT a movie for any child to see or hear.
