Part of ALONG FOR THE RIDE: A TRIBUTE TO DENNIS HOPPER
Director Tony Scott and screenwriter Quentin Tarantino collaborate for a characteristically over-the-top, stylishly haywire crime romance, following the explosive marriage of comic store clerk Clarence (Christian Slater) and prostitute Alabama (Patricia Arquette), who inherit a suitcase of cocaine on their wedding day. When the couple tries to sell the drugs, a slew of Hollywood’s hardest and most flamboyant gangsters (including Christopher Walken, James Gandolfini and Gary Oldham) starts gunning for the star-crossed lovers. With an estimable and delightfully tweaked-out supporting cast headed by Dennis Hopper, Val Kilmer, Brad Pitt and Samuel L. Jackson.
Directed by Tony Scott. 1993. USA. 121 min. 35mm print courtesy of Morgan Creek Productions.
