As extreme as you want to be
This is a 26 and a half minute making of feature found on the Widescreen Director's Cut DVD of Natural Born Killers, going into, yeah, you know which picture. It's made up of a series of sit-down interviews, presumably conducted in 2001(certainly Lewis here seems to have...evolved(I'm joking. Calm down.) on what she thinks acting is from Full Tilt Boogie, there calling it "lying", here saying that it's like children playing, creating something), with the main cast and crew, who all have something interesting to say, clips from the film and behind-the-scenes footage.
They comment on how crazy the shoot was(playing random music between takes, filming while driving and on mushrooms, Sizemore actually was hurt, including breaking his nose... and then he was told to keep going, those were real prisoners all around them, that's the leaky sewer of them and their facility, etc.), the media's influence on our lives, violence and our perception(one of the major themes of the subject itself), the ideas and how the distinct stylistic choices were accomplished.
There is a lot of strong language and disturbing content in this, even a little violence(from Vietnam), and not only in the stuff taken directly from the finished product. I recommend this to anyone who wants to know more about the movie. 7/10
