Synopsis:

True Romance is a gritty and exhilarating crime film directed by Tony Scott and written by Quentin Tarantino. The story revolves around Clarence Worley, a lonely and comic book-loving movie nerd who falls in love with a beautiful call girl named Alabama. After a night of passion, they decide to elope, but their plans take an unexpected turn when Clarence accidentally steals a suitcase full of cocaine belonging to Alabama's pimp. As they navigate a treacherous underworld, pursued by various criminals and law enforcement, the young couple embarks on a wild and violent journey to sell the drugs and secure their future together. Filled with sharp dialogue, intense action, and unforgettable characters, True Romance is a thrilling tale of love, loyalty, and survival in the face of overwhelming danger.


Intentions:

I originally compiled the Quentin Tarantino screen play edit but after completing it I preferred the chronological order way better. It felt more in keeping with this storyline. So, I’ve made a hybrid of Tarantino’s, The Theatrical cut and the Directors version to tell the story I love from this amazing couple. While I’ve tried to add as much footage as possible, I was able to remove a lot of the dotlace from the deleted scenes but they’re not perfect. They were in very poor quality but we’ve upscaled them and tried to highlight as much detail as possible using Topaz and other software. Thanks to Skenera for the help.

I’ve no idea why they did a weird fade on the scene where the cop gets shot in the stomach. • Cut between Theatrical and Directors cut shots to show more violent action closeups. • Option to have Gangster come back from the dead to shoot the cop or have Alabama. do it I decided to have Alabama kill the cop out of justice for killing the security guard. • Fix colourgrade issues between Theatrical and Directors cuts. Each scenes colour feels completely different so hopefully how it’s more balanced. • Fix audio • Option to keep Clarence dead or have him come back. I decide to make a happy ending for the couple. Mainly because Alabama seems really bitter and out of character for the alternative ending, and for the fact I much prefer them having a Child called Elvis. THE END
