In a sociological study on murderous psychology, 'Kalifornia' delves headlong into sociopathic analysis Duchovny asserts that serial killers can distinguish between right and wrong and they should receive the death penalty.
These aspects of the film are intrinsically provocative. However, Duchovny's voiceover is a sleep tranquilizer like Harrison Ford's lukewarm narration in 'Blade Runner'.
He waxes poetic about how serial killers "dream they can fly" and it sounds irredeemably pretentious. Pitt is superficial unkemptness as the hayseed Early and he is such a dimwit that he can hardly be classified as a threat Early romanticizes California with claims that there "ain't no speed limits and the first month is rent free.
Anything spouted by Juliette Lewis is a juvenile stereotype of Southern yokels she doesn't fathom the definition of the word "karma" and she is intolerable in the role.
Early's parole officer with the hook appendage is extremely cartoonish. Truthfully, 'Kalifornia' is a vapid exercise in David Fincher style, but its declarations about the ill-bred origins of serial killers are shallow.
Cory T Super Reviewer. Nov 29, It starts out slow and ends rather predictably, but Kalifornia is still a great thriller with a good-enough message.
I was actually wanting to see what happened next. The characters are well-acted by their actors surprisingly, I liked David Duchovny and the story really gets you involved.
My favorite quote from the movie, "Hey, if you switched two letters in your name it'd spell, um Was it really that violent?
Or did I miss something? I mean, on account of what they release in theaters nowadays, and considering the fact that most of that stuff is rated R, I can't imagine that this was rated NC Stephen E Super Reviewer.
Aug 17, You know,for a movie about redneck serial killer on a road trip to California, this movie, for the most part, is pretty uninteresting. There's nothing bad about this movie in any way, but it just didn't engage me in any way until Brian and Carrie find out that Early is a killer, then the movie gets great.
The problem is, this was more than halfway through the movie and it's really a shame. But the movie's good, the acting is very strong.
Particularly Brad Pitt, he was tremendous. You know, being someone who didn't start to enjoy Brad Pitt's work until his stuff this past decade, I must have to admit that this guy probably always knew how to act.
But, at the time, he probably didn't get much of a chance to show this because of his looks and he was cast in movies where his looks were really the most important thing.
So, naturally, this created a backlash among some people. He's fucking great. He won't win any important awards for his acting, but he's better than people give him credit for.
So the point is, Brad is great here and he pretty much carries the movie with his performance.
It's kind of a shame that, unfortunately, the movie still isn't that interesting in spite of his performance.
But I don't blame Brad for that, I blame whoever wrote the movie for not writing a more interesting movie. So, overall, the movie is good at best.
It should've been better, but it wasn't. Jesse O Super Reviewer. Aug 15, See all Audience reviews. Early Grayce: What kinda koo-koo brain keeps a cactus in her purse?
View All Quotes. Early sends Adele ahead, then murders his landlord before joining her to wait for Brian and Carrie. Carrie is reluctant about riding with the couple given their rough appearance, but Brian encourages her to give them a chance.
On the road, unbeknown to his companions, Early murders a man in a gas station bathroom and steals his money. When they arrive at their first hotel, Early cuts Adele's long hair shorter to try to match Carrie's.
At another hotel, Early invites Brian out to play pool, leaving Adele and Carrie alone together. Adele explains that her mother did not approve of her relationship, because Early had just been released from prison.
Adele reveals to Carrie that she suffered a vicious gang rape and that she views Early as her protector, even though he sometimes "punishes" her.
While Carrie and Adele drink beer, Adele also admits to Carrie that Early forbids her to smoke or drink. Meanwhile, at a local bar, Early assaults a man who confronts Brian.
Later on during the road-trip, Early introduces Brian to pistol shooting in a remote, unnamed location.
Carrie is alarmed by Brian's growing fascination with Early, and by Brian's nonchalant response to the news that Early is a convicted felon.
After catching Early and Adele having sex in the car, she gives Brian an ultimatum : either they rid themselves of the pair, or she will leave.
At a desert gas station, Carrie glimpses a news report about Early being a suspected murderer. Early kills the gas station attendant in front of Carrie and continues the trip with the couple as hostages.
At an abandoned mine camp, the party encounter two police officers, whom Early shoots and kills. They next come to the home of an elderly couple in the desert.
Early beats the man to death, but Adele allows the woman to flee. When Early confronts Adele about letting the woman free, she hits him in the face with a cactus and chastises him, after which he shoots her to death.
He then knocks Brian unconscious before kidnapping Carrie, driving her to the abandoned Dreamland nuclear testing site on the California-Nevada border.
Early forces Carrie to dress in Adele's clothes and the film implies that he rapes her off-camera. Brian regains consciousness, and the elderly woman gives him the keys to her truck.
Brian follows Early to the nuclear test site and attacks him, hitting him in the face with a shovel. Brian finds Carrie, who appears to be in shock, handcuffed to a bed in an abandoned house.
Early, who was only stunned, attacks Brian and they struggle until Early is hit over the head by Carrie with the limb from a nuclear test mannequin.
When Early continues the attack, Brian shoots and kills him. Some time later, Brian and Carrie are living in an oceanfront house in Malibu.
As Brian sifts through tapes made with his voice recorder during their trip, Carrie tells him that a local gallery is interested in her art.
Brian responds by suggesting they go out to celebrate. As they depart, Brian unintentionally leaves a recording running, which reveals a "thank you" message Adele covertly left at the end of a tape.
In Lost Highways: An Illustrated History of Road Movies writers Jack Sargeant and Stephanie Watson note that the film presents doubled images of the two couples, "contrary rituals of affirmation" between Early and Adele, and Brian and Carrie, which demonstrate their social and class-related disparities.
Film scholar Charles Derry views Kalifornia as part of a historical trend of serial killer films released in the early s, popularized by the success of Jonathan Demme 's The Silence of the Lambs Metcalfe later commented their intentions were "to scare an audience, to comment on our national obsession with 'true crime' stories, and to punish myself for my morbid preoccupation with the subject of murder and murderers.
Between November and March , Metcalfe completed two rewrites of the script to implement changes requested by Sena and Propaganda Films. Metcalfe disagreed on the direction the script was being developed,  while Sena and the producers found his rewrites "uninspiring".
Without the budget to hire another writer, Sena, along with his two producers, spent another year writing ten subsequent drafts of the script.
Filming of Kalifornia began in the late spring of Sena recalled the shoot being extremely difficult, with the shooting schedule sometimes allowing only one day in certain locations.
They have been working ridiculous hours under conditions that are not star-like. The hotels in the desert are not luxurious; they get a room with a swamp cooler, they don't even have air conditioning.
It's a rough show. The film opened at number 17 at the U. Kalifornia received generally mixed reviews.
Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times lauded the film, awarding it a full four stars and describing it as "unflinchingly honest, and so well acted that for most of the film I abandoned any detachment and just watched it as if I were observing the lives of real people.
Lewis's Adele by far the most arresting," but added that the film "is indeed good-looking, with its striking desert landscapes nicely photographed by Bojan Bazelli, and with costumes by Kelle Kutsugaras that say everything -- and more -- about the people who wear them.
If looks were everything, maybe they'd be on the right track. Richard Harrington of The Washington Post heralded the film's aesthetic elements, writing that it "is so beautifully filmed by Bojan Bazelli, and so skillfully edited, that its art house surface belies its exploitation content, making this a trip through a cool world rather than a cruel one.
And although the script suffers from an ending that doesn't have that much to say that's fresh about remorseless murderers, the trip is worth taking because we meet four indelible characters in one compelling scene after another.
Some critics, such as Peter Travers of Rolling Stone , felt certain elements of the script were "preposterous,"  while the Chicago Tribune ' s Mark Caro deemed it a "pretentious B movie.
Unsafe at any speed, this dramatic vehicle goes up in flames, consumed by a lethally defective mix of pomposity and pretension. Factory released a 2-disc special edition Blu-ray of the film under their Shout!
Select label, featuring both the unrated and theatrical cuts, as well as a new interview with director Dominic Sena. Following the completion of the film, DC Comics commissioned a comic book adaptation from writer Chuck Dixon and artist Duncan Fegredo.
The adaptation was never published, though it got as far as the completion of some coloring work done by Danny Vozzo. Fegredo has speculated this was due to the demise of Gramercy Pictures , a production company involved handling the rights.
An uncolored version, complete with Fegredo's original cover art, has since been uploaded to the Internet. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
