    Natural Born Killers

    ★★★½

    Re-watching this controversial film makes me think about the real life effects of glorification of serial killers. The film is a terrifying piece, shot like somebody's bad dream through a number of filters, tricks and gimmicks culminating in a blood soaked finale as a persistent undercurrent of hate and anger runs throughout it. The film is consistently stylised and over the top in its violence, but that doesn't mean it stylises and makes violence. Natural Born Killers manages to paint an ugly, often scary aesthetic to its tale whilst systematically tap into everything it is that makes colourful and casually violent.

The centerpiece of Spencer is undoubtedly Kristen Stewart's electricity. Stewart disappears into her…

    Okay, Maanadu exploited the time loop concept really well. The editing and music were anchors of the film. And Venkat Prabhu's best after Mankatha and Chennai-28.
