In 2008, Entertainment Weekly conducted an online poll of the 25 most controversial movies of all time, and Natural Born Killers ended up at number eight. Copycat killers linked to Natural Born Killers surfaced, even leading to a lawsuit against director Oliver Stone and Time Warner. Natural Born Killers seeks to expose the sadistic nature of media by glorifying two pitiless murders, Mickey (Woody Harrelson) and Mallory (Juliette Lewis). The provocative film will be re-released on DVD tomorrow.
