This True Romance retrospective has come about from unfortunate circumstances and that is because that we have lost the great Tony Scott to tragedy for unknown reasons. We wish all his family and friends the best and in his honour, it feels fitting to review what could be his greatest film – though there are lot of choices for that. True Romance is a special film and one which manages to incorporate the many different genres that it’s hard to categorise it. There’s action, comedy, drama and romance which is all subject to a thrilling ride in the crime world. It’s stylish to its decade being typically ‘90s with its colours, music and fashion; in fact, it’s still stylish today. This could very well be his masterpiece. It’s a fitting tribute to celebrate the life of an innovative director that changed films forever.
