True Romance

I am not a fan of Quentin Tarantino movies, but Sunday night, friends convinced me to watch his first written film, True Romance.
Despite a few bloody scenes, I was surprised to enjoy it and walked away with this opening quote stuck in my my mind...
 
I had to come all the way from the highway and byways of Tallahassee, Florida to MotorCity, Detroit to find my true love. If you gave me a million years to ponder, I would never have guessed that true romance and Detroit would ever go together. And til this day, the events that followed all still seems like a distant dream. But the dream was real and was to change our lives forever. I kept asking Clarence why our world seemed to be collapsing and things seemed to be getting so shitty. And he'd say, "that's the way it goes, but don't forget, it goes the other way too." That's the way romance is... Usually, that's the way it goes, but every once in awhile, it goes the other way too. 
 
The early 90s music and leading lady (played by Patricia Arquette) Alabama's style has kept me inspired too....her red lipstick, leopard jacket, and blue mirrored sunglasses.
 
 
 

Anyone else seen this movie?  Are you a Tarantino fan?

  1. Not a fan of Quentin either, but that quote has me interested and it seems like a movie I'd like. I'm going to see if Netflix has it! Patricia Arquette looks beautiful here, too!
