Kill Bill [Nov. 6th, 2004|09:52 am]
Tony Grist

Kill Bill puts a smile on my face. It's so intelligent. It's so vaccuous. It's a gratuitous exercise in pure style. The pacing is exquisite, the execution flawless. And it's so impassioned, so much a work of love.

Quentin and Jean-Luc up a tree-  K, i, s, s, i, n, g.

 And here's a Hollywood action movie without a single explosion in it. The way to get an audience excited is not to hit them and hit them and hit them in the face, but to keep them waiting.

I saw Kill Bill 2 in the cinema. I didn't think I'd like it (I wasn't a Tarantino fan) but I fell in love.

This was me catching up with part 1.

It is violent, but- how can I put this- it's a stylised violence. Limbs and head are chopped off and the blood spurts in fountains. It's like the violence in a fairy-story.

Oddly enough- considering all the killing- I found it wonderfully life-affirming. It's a joyous film
