Directed with a cool remove by Dominic Sena, Kalifornia falls somewhere between Badlands and Natural Born Killers. David Duchovny is a blocked author with a fascination for outlaw killers who hatches a plan to road trip through America's mass-murder landmarks to finish his book. He enlists the help of his frustrated photographer girlfriend Michelle Forbes, who desperately wants to leave the East Coast for LA, and they advertise for riding partners. Luckily for them, they wind up with a veteran killer, the greasy trailer-park ex-con Brad Pitt, who decides to skip parole with his cowering child-woman girlfriend Juliette Lewis. Duchovny is enamoured by gun-toting Pitt's recklessness and lawless disregard for, well, everything--simultaneously terrified and thrilled by Pitt's brutal beating of a barfly. Meanwhile, Pitt's leaving a trail of corpses in their wake.

Pitt brings a ferocious magnetism to his part, but it's still hard to buy genial Duchovny's odd attraction; Juliette Lewis conveys a terrifying sense of victimization with her poor dumb creature. Despite the film's best efforts, it never really plumbs the psyche of Pitt's simmering psycho--he's just plain bad, you know--but it does fashion an effective little thriller out of the tensions brewing in the restless quartet. --Sean Axmaker,

Product Description

A writer (David Duchovny) and his photographer girlfriend leave New York to drive to a new life in California, taking in several Southern States so that they can visit murder sites for their new book on serial killers. Along the way they pick up two hitchhikers, one of whom (Brad Pitt) could provide an interesting case study for their research... Also starring Juliette Lewis.

Good film with Brad Pitt as the baddy, that guy from XFilesas the goody, and Julliet Lewis paying the bills. Dark drama, murder, facial hair...scary, you guys...

5.0 out of 5 stars A much overlooked film... 21 Mar 2004
By A Customer
This is a taut thriller which revolves around a road trip to California.
Duchovny and Forbes want to travel across the US to California stopping at famous murder sites along the way - they're planning a book; he's writing the words and she's taking the pictures. To help finance the trip they advertise for someone to share driving and split gas money - they get the more than slightly psychotic Pitt and his childlike girlfriend Lewis. As they make their way across the country trying to make sense of violent murders by visiting where they took place, they are unaware that they have their own serial killer in the back seat.
There are some genuinely tense moments. The central performances are very good - Pitt is almost unrecogniseable and although Duchovny's character looks and, for the most part, sounds exactly like Fox Mulder, his initial fascination and eventual disgust with violence is well played out.
This is a very violent film but if you like thrillers and don't mind a bit of gore and bad language then you should enjoy it as much as I did.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another 'good buddie' road film..? 24 Mar 2013
By Rick
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is a great thriller of a movie with top rate performances from all involved. My daughter gave me the nod towards this movie, & I'm so glad she did. Hardly, the usual road trip, when a writer & his partner advertise for a person, (or persons) to come along for the journey & share the expenses. There follows a thrilling & scary road trip for all. The film does well and probably takes from Bonnie & Clyde, Badlands & Thelma & Louise. Brad Pitt has never been so menacing. Great Thriller.

The plot is straightforward, the climax predictable, it follows the path laid out by similar movies where the yuppie, rich kids who think they know the world clash with the wild but free psychopath, first bonding then turning to horror. So why is this film so interesting? Perhaps it's in the casting, a wild turn from Brad Pitt, dropping the pretty boy image for a raw performance and baring all (more on that later), or David Duchovny who like Agent Mulder hiding behind that white shirt and tie has always had a dark side threatening to come out. The film is directed in a dirty grimy way with some great shots such as a climax in a bleached out nuclear testing ground or Brad Pitt completely naked in the rain digging a massive grave. Juliette Lewis and Michelle Forbes are good but they are hardly acting against type and you have seen them do the same thing in other films. Special mention to the sets and locations, be they cheap diners, old industrial warehouses or old farm barns that were once the site of mass murder the walls ooze sleaze and create a threatening atmosphere. This is aided by the good directing, lighting and cinematography.
This is a film well worth a watch and though it begins to become tiresome near the end due to it's predictable structure and a running time that could have had 15 minutes trimmed off I would still recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Underated 11 April 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a very dark film in contrast to the bright sunshine of the cinematography. Everything is right about it. The Cinematography, the pace, the script, the casting, the scenery. There is shocking violence in the film, but it is about the relationship of four people in a restricted environment, one of whom is a serial killer. The violent scenes are necessary and not excessive. How Michelle Forbes is not doing more work is the great mystery of this film. Effectively the four main protagonists are the four leading actors. No one overacts and there are balanced performaces from all four. An overlooked gem.

Brad Pitt plays an extremely believable trailor-trash red-neck serial killer, combined with the endearing qulities of his support Adele (Juliette Lewis) makes this film one of my faves.
I remember that watching this film sparked off my interest of Pitt as a credible actor. I have since watched all of his films, and I now consider him to be one of my fave male actors of modern cinema.
A good performance from all four lead roles, combined with good directing and nice cinematography make this a...
