Anyone seen "Kill Bill" yet?
I won't get a chance to see it until Sunday, Oct. 12. I have to work on Friday and Saturday
I heard a lot of stuff on other various forums.
I heard that it's the most violent American-made film ever.
The movie is in 2 volumes. I don't think anyone can stomach 3.5 hours of ultra-violence. Volume 1 will be released on Oct. 10 and volume 2 will be coming in Feb. 2004.
Quentin Tarantino doesn't hold anything back. He lets it all loose. He doesn't let the censors force him to make a less-violent tamer version of his work.
This film is Tarantino's take on Asian cinema. This film has many influences from Chinese sword-fighting films to Japanese anime. There is even a Japanese-anime-style segment in this film. Some of the Asian actors in this film have appeared in some of the Asian films that influenced this film.
It has the classic Tarantino signatures - the style, the music, the cinematography, the violence, and the references to the movies that influenced it. And the fight scenes are top-notch, from what I hear.
One major thing that will be different in this film than his previous films is that the dialogue is not a main focal point, but I think that's done on purpose because the films that influenced this film were not dialogue-driven anyway.
I can't wait to finally see it.
