true romance

it is valentines day (so i have noticed!); sadly i only get to see ny boyfriend at the weekend becuase of work, so tonight i am treating myself to a cheap bottle of wine and my favourite romance film - True Romance.

True Romance is a Tarantino film (so automatically, you'll know what to expect). It is Christian Slater's character's birthday. He's a lonely guy but happy amoungst himself. His work collegues hire the new 'escort' on the block Alabama (played by Patricia Arquetta) to 'bump' into Slater and make it a night to remember. It is Alabama's second night working, she fails mesribly and falls for Christian Slater instead of leaving her feelings at the door.

Alabama's pimp (gary oldman) won't let her leave so Slater, turns to the rescue kills him and steals his cocaine stash. The two of them are then on the run. Trying to escape police and Oldman's men, while trying to sell huge amounts of cocaine unexperienced and unknowledgable.
the film goes on, feature a young time waster and stoner (brad pitt), but second to all of this; another reason i am quite in love with this film is Patrica Arquetta's character's style. 50's kitsch meets 80's miami - fall in love with these images and you will be in love as me.

Happy Valentine's!!

  7. Surprised to see so many people never heard of this. It is common that people don't know that it is a Tarantino film because he only wrote it.. His other films are written and directed by him and are considered "Tarantino" films. This is my favorite movie of all time. The dialogue between Walken and Hopper is epic!!!

  8. Stopped by after doing a search of True Romance images (which I do every now and then). Thanks for the references! I'll use it to add to my True Romance tattoos. :)
