Pretty Poison

Recently released from a mental institution, Dennis is trying to get to grips with reality, when he meets cheerleader Sue Ann. He somehow manages to convince her that he's a CIA operative and asks her to join him on his murderous escapades. Sue Ann herself is all too happy to be convinced and talks him into running away to Mexico. But first they must get her objecting mother out of the way. ?Drawing from its protagonists’ singular and explosive relationship, the film poses a poignant question about its time and the reality around it. The true paranoia of America, the sickness in its convoluted psyche, is not to be found in the darkness or on the faces of strangers, but on the seemingly peaceful and familiar."
