When I saw Resevoir Dogs for the first time, I was stunned. The story, the style, the violence… all of it was just awe inspiring.
Pulp Fiction followed suit.
Jackie Brown… well, other than a few highly quotable lines from Samuel L. Jackson, it was a stinker.
Kill Bill is a true return to form for Tarentino, and a departure just the same. In what actually feels like a modern retelling of an old black and white kung fu/Kurosawa film, he blends the perfect mixture of style, story, and over the top violence to pull you in and leave you begging for more.
Thankfully, Volume II should be out in February.
I highly recommend this film. And if you like Tarentino, you’ll love this movie.
