Tony Scott’s movies were at best brilliant and at worst watchable. If I had to pick my desert island Tony Scott movie it would without out a doubt be True Romance. It’s often remembered as a Tarantino film but not nearly enough credit is given to the guy who brought to life stoner Brad Pitt, imaginary Elvis Val Kilmer, and Gary Oldman as a white pimp who thought he was black. So today I’d like to remember the Tony Scott project that gave us one of the all time great movie scenes (NSFW).
That a film with so many brilliant actors (and Bronson Pinchot) was headlined by Christian Slater and Patricia Arquette never ceases to amaze me. And I’m not ashamed to admit I thought of Gandolfini as “that guy from True Romance” well into season two of Sopranos. What follows might be considered by some NSFW.
