Synopsis

A triple bill of action. 'Natural Born Killers' is Oliver Stone's controversial tale of killers on the run and is based on a screenplay by Quentin Tarantino. Micky and Mallory (Woody Harrelson and Juliette Lewis) are no-good drop-outs who respond to their social alienation by embarking on a murder rampage across America. Soon, with the help of tabloid journalist Wayne Gayle (Robert Downey Jr), they become cult heroes, and find themselves at the centre of an unlikely media circus. But FBI agent Dwight McClusky (Tommy Lee Jones) is determined to put an end to their glory. In 'Liberty Stands Still' Liberty Wallace (Linda Fiorentino) is an arms manufacturer who has made a fortune out of trading in weapons. She receives a phone call from a man named Joe (Wesley Snipes) whose daughter was killed by one of Liberty's guns in a high school shooting, and he tells Liberty that he currently has a high-powered rifle aimed at her. Eager for revenge, Joe also wants to expose the shady dealings of Liberty's company, and tries to negotiate a confession from his hostage. When Liberty's husband (Oliver Platt) arrives with the police, the tense situation grows even more complicated. Whilst in 'Gang Related' corrupt police detectives Frank Divinci (James Belushi) and Rodriguez (Tupac Shakur, who was shot days after completing the film) run a drugs scam on the side - the former to help finance early retirement, the latter to pay off gambling debts. When they kill a dealer who turns out to be an undercover Drug Enforcement Agency employee, they attempt to frame vagrant alcoholic Joe (Dennis Quaid) for the killing, using Divinci's girlfriend Cynthia (Lela Rochon) to testify falsely as a witness. However, attorney Arthur Baylor (James Earl Jones) smells a rat...
