In making Natural Born Killers, Oliver Stone has ventured into cinematic territory that requires considerable daring - graphically portraying the exploits of mass murderers while simultaneously exposing the complicity of America's media and popular culture in their brutality. If you can get over Stone's relentless and graphic directorial style and his complete lack of concern for censorship or social outrage, you will learn a great deal from this piece of film.
Technically, Natural Born Killers was a cinematic break through. Stone's seemingly haphazard barrage of imagery is in fact a finely tuned roll of delicately edited cinematography.

The Lawnmower Celebrity by Ben Hatch

Classic stuff. Hatch's witty workplace scenarios and quirky but likeable characters make for a highly enjoyable weekends reading.

I loved the dad, the best friend and the mum, but the girlfriend didn't really seem complete somehow. None the less though, the dry humour and the joyfully un-subtle cynicism made for a hilarious read. His new one is already pre-ordered in my 'wish list'.
