Trivia

According to The Kill Bill Diary (written by David Carradine), the movie that The Bride and her daughter would watch, was originally going to be Disney's The Aristocats (1970). When Disney wouldn't allow it, Quentin decided to have them watch an episode of the cartoon Samurai Jack (2001). But, the film featured in the final cut (or overheard, as we only see their faces as they watch), is Shogun Assassin (1980). See more »

Goofs

About a minute into the Bride/Elle Driver trailer fight scene, Elle sends the Bride tumbling into a wooden rocking chair, thus knocking over a coffee can containing expelled dipping tobacco fluid. When she recovers, the can has somehow been righted and is ready for the Bride to grab and empty in Elle's face. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Bill: Do you find me sadistic? You know, Kiddo, I'd like to believe that you're aware enough even now to know that there's nothing sadistic in my actions. At this moment, this is me at my most masochistic.
The Bride: Bill, it's your bab...

User Reviews

It transcends its genre and becomes Tarantino's most thoughtful and sophisticated work
15 April 2004 | by PlutonicLoveSee all my reviews

In my brief, initial review of 'Kill Bill Vol. 1.' I made the regrettable mistake of dismissing it as exceedingly pleasing yet unsubstantial stylistic masturbation, lacking the profundity and characterizations of Tarantino's previous works. Rarely have I been happier to be proven wrong.

What once seemed like somewhat incoherent cinematic recklessness has, after viewing the second part of Mr. Tarantino's saga, revealed itself to be wild, imaginative and brilliant filmmaking. As a whole, 'Kill Bill' is utterly unified (not despite but because of the radical shift in tone), possesses a strong, dramatic ark, and, above all, stands as quite possibly the most passionate, loving tribute to cinema I have ever seen. While part one pays homage to Brian De Palma, Dario Argento and the Shaw Brothers, part two cites, among many others, Jean-Luc Godard, Sergio Leone, and Robert Siodmark.

But that's far from all.

In his critical essay 'The Cinema of the Cool', Kevin Murphy suggests that Tarantino must move on and grow up to fully realize his potential as a filmmaker. In my opinion, with this piece, he has done so. Those merely seeking the blood-splattered, broken-bone action of Vol. 1 will be severely disappointed by Vol. 2, which is infinitely more thoughtful, pondering the nature of violence, both in cause and effect. While the action in the first installment was great, comic book fun, here it becomes severely unpleasant, cringe inducing, and never without consequence. If anything, it reminded me of the great Akira Kurosawa's work. Remarkable.
