Domino ★★½ 2005 (R)

Scott, who proved that he could hang with the Taran-tino crowd in “True Romance,” uses every trick in his cinematic arsenal to bring to life the “sort of” true story of model-turned-bounty-hunter Domino Harvey (Knightley). Domino joins the crew of a bail-bondsman, looking for passion and thrills, and finds herself in the center of screenwriter Richard Kelly's perfect storm of bombastic sex, gunplay, criminal conspiracies, and reality TV. The plot tends to drag and the supporting cast overwhelms Knightley a bit, but you've got to love a movie that brings together Christopher Walken, Mickey Rourke, and 90210's Ian Ziering, with every camera shot that Tarantino and Oliver Stone were too chicken to use themselves. 128m/C DVD .
