See Bonnie And Clyde First

A film that meditates on the nature of violence in media, but, in so doing, is itself a grotesque and violent display. As with some other Stone works, it is hardly as subtle as it thinks it is and the same subject was tackled with much greater effect in an earlier film (one that Stone is obviously emulating) in Bonnie and Clyde. The cast is talented and Harrelson and Lewis are a formidable and scary criminal duo, but the film is too desperate to shock without backing it up with substance.
