Kill Bill: Vol. 1
Dir. Quentin Tarantino. 2003, 111 mins. Digital projection. With Uma Thurman, Lucy Liu, Vivica A. Fox, Daryl Hannah, David Carradine, Chiaki Kuriyama, Shin’ichi Chiba (a.k.a. Sonny Chiba). A thrilling pastiche of kung fu, yakuza, spaghetti Westerns, and anime, with homages to the Shaw Brothers, Sonny Chiba, and Bruce Lee, Kill Bill is one of the most audacious odes to action cinema to ever come out of Hollywood. Emerging from a coma after an assassination attempt and massacre on her wedding day, The Bride—a fearless ex-assassin wielding a katana—embarks on an action-packed journey that takes her to Okinawa, Japan to seek her vengeance. Zoë Bell began her stint as Tarantino’s go-to stuntwoman as Uma Thurman’s double.
