Kalifornia (1993)

This is a poorly written, but well acted film about sociopathic murder. Why people are fascinated by this is intriguing in itself.

A writer decides to research serial killers for his next book and coincidentally ends up on a road trip with one. 

The story boils down to one of survival rather than its intended topic of exploring the dark hearted killers. The narration is brutally one-dimensional and takes away from the character development. The theme of what causes people to kill repeatedly is bogged down with cliché relationship problems and then cliché thriller events. Brad Pitt and Juliette Lewis do steal their scenes with their acting - making the movie passable. Lewis is especially intriguing and brings the only real truth to the story.

Truth: There is a craving for love, that when unpleased tends towards the destructive.
