Kill Bill

No, it's not a new Sun marketing directive; it's the recent film from Quentin Tarantino, that we watched on Pay-per-View on Sunday Night. Well Volume 1 of what's guaranteed to have a followup. I've seen all of Tarantino's other films, so I was looking forward to this.

Like all of his films, it is never obvious what is going to happen next. Yeah, you know there is going to be lots of violence (and this film has buckets of blood) and you can be sure that there will be the well choosen expletives, but from scene to scene he's not predictable. I love the way he goes from something that seems ordinary and familiar right into a marshall arts display. The way it goes from the over-the-top carnage scene in the restaurant to the "peaceful" snow scene in the garden (prelude to yet another marshall arts show).

I'm sure I didn't get all the references and in-jokes to the marshall arts movies from the 70's, but it thoughly entertained me anyhow. If you are looking for realism, this film isn't for you. You need to ignore the excessive violence (body parts flying everywhere) and just watch a master director getting off on what he can do well.
