In Detroit, a lonely pop culture geek marries a call girl, steals cocaine from her pimp, and tries to sell it in Hollywood. Meanwhile, the owners of the cocaine, the Mob, track them down in an attempt to reclaim it.
Mickey Knox and Mallory Wilson aren't your typical lovers - after killing her abusive father, they go on a road trip where, every time they stop somewhere, they kill pretty well everyone around them. They do however leave one person alive at every shootout to tell the story and they soon become a media sensation thanks to sensationalized reporting. Told in a highly visual style.Written by
Tommy Lee Jones has said that his over-the-top performance was partly inspired by Molière's play 'Le Bourgeois gentilhomme'; a satirical look at social climbing and the bizarre things people will do to achieve fame. See more »
When Mallory attacks Scagnetti in her cell and the guards rush to unlock it, you can clearly see it is at the end of a hallway (one guard pushes the other one out of the way as they both scramble to unlock it. But when Mickey reaches Mallory's 'cell' to rescue her, he enters two doors before where hers would be. See more »
I'm surprised Hollywood ain't caught up with you yet, your story'd make a much better movie than that Serpico shit.

The Director's Cut was originally released by Vidmark Video, after Warner Bros. refused to distribute it because of a company policy that won't allow them to release unrated or NC-17 rated tapes (the Director's Cut was unrated). The Warner Bros. logo was thus removed from the beginning of the film. However, in 2009, Warner Bros. did release their own edition of the Director's Cut, in which the logo was restored. See more »
I didn't see this (ahem!) "film" for a long time because it sounded like a load of garbage.After hearing others tell how much they liked it,I got weak and watched this thing(luckily I checked it from the library and didn't pay rental).What a psychic I am!!!It WAS a load of garbage!!!I don't know why everyone seems to love this junk and think Mickey and Mallory are cool...I was ready for them to die after the first 15 minutes.The only good thing about this "Director's Cut" version I got was the unused scene where M and M get blown away by Arliss Howard's character.Should have put that in the original...right at the beginning!!
