Kill Bill Vol. 1


I enjoyed this adolescent fantasy in which Uma Thurman battles an assassination squad of attractive women (and their minions).  It’s basically carnage from front to back.   What recommends the film is its exhilarating energy and bravura visuals.   It’s an interesting mix of Tarantino’s two primary influences: exploitation films and the French new wave.   The more familiar you are with Asian animation and kung-fu films, the more you’ll “get it”.   (Personally, I’m not at all familiar with that stuff).   “Vol. II’ to follow next year.
