TRUE ROMANCE (R) In this cheerfully disreputable outlaw-lovers-on-the-run flick, Christian Slater and Patricia Arquette are sweetly jaded punk deadbeats who end up on the road to L.A., where they attempt to unload half a million dollars worth of stolen cocaine. There’s a wonderful gallery of supporting oddballs, including Saul Rubinek as a high-strung hipster producer, Christopher Penn and Tom Sizemore as flaky cops, and Val Kilmer as-yes-the ghost of Elvis. With True Romance, you never forget you’re watching a derivative, machine-tooled entertainment; the fun is in how the machine keeps spinning off course. B+ ( 187, Sept. 10) -OG
