Guncrazy ★★ 1992 (R)

Girl from the wrong side of the tracks, abused her entire life, finds her freedom in a gun. She winds up killing the man who raped her, takes up with an equally lost ex-con, and the two armed misfits go on the run from the law. Barrymore's convincing and the movie is another well-made variation on the lovers-on-the-run theme. Film was inspired by, but is not a remake of, the 1949 movie “Gun Crazy.” 97m/C VHS, DVD . Drew Barrymore, James LeGros, Billy Drago, Rodney Harvey, Ione Skye, Joe Dallesandro, Michael Iron-side; D: Tamra Davis; W: Matthew Bright; C: Lisa Rinzler.
