Directed by Terrence Malick
First Bonnie and Clyde, now this, then Natural Born Killers. People really like the idea of running off with possibly homosexual men and going on bank-robbing, murderous rampages. People are such hopeless romantics.
Holly is a fifteen year old girl who attracts the attention of a slightly rape-y twenty-five year old Kit. Her father (who also gives off a rape-y vibe), of course, opposes their romance. Kit kills her father. As we learned from West Side Story, offing family members isn't exactly a deal breaker, and Holly joins him on his crime spree.
I actually really enjoyed this movie, although after the last one, any film with a plot has me singing its praises. A bit more violent than Bonnie and Clyde, but I found myself caring more about the characters. Also absolutely beautifully shot.
A solid entry in a very peculiar genre.
Based on real life murderers Charles Starkweather and Caril Fugate.
