Most stylish movies: True Romance edition

It's been quite a while since i've contributed to my Most Stylish Movies feature. To be perfectly honest, the whole thing had kind of escaped my mind. My bad. Nevertheless, here it is, back in action! The reason: one of my favorite movies of all time (it ranks high up there in my top 3) - True Romance. This is Patricia Arquette at her finest and Christian Slater's moment of glory, completely upstaging his cult performance in Heathers. Alabama and Clarence take us on the most romantic and badass ride in cinematic history. No surprise there seeing as it was written by Quentin Tarantino. Complete with the most wicked cast ever (James Gandolfini, Christopher Walken, Brad Pitt as a major stoner, etc...), the movie contains some of the all-time best lines ever ("I'm a good person and when it comes to relationships, I'm one-hundred percent, I'm one hundred percent... monogamous." "Do I look like a beautiful blonde with big tits and an ass that tastes like French vanilla ice-cream?"), the most amazing fight scene ever (Patricia Arquette and James Gandolfini, hallelujah) and one of the hottest sex scenes i've ever seen (getting it on in a phone booth in the middle of the desert, hell yeah). But none of that is as memorable as Alabama's quirky, off-kilter, sexy-cooky style. If you haven't seen this masterpiece of a reel, run to your local blockbuster immediately, if not sooner. If you have seen it, then i'm sure you agree with everything you just read.
