Fandoms: Kill Bill Vol. 1, Quentin Tarantino
01 Jun 2023
Kill Bill - interesting flick. More for film buffs or rather film geeks (like myself) I suspect than mainstream movie goers. I saw a certain artistry behind it. As movie buddy mentioned - it was more about recapturing and splicing together different artistic action movie styles than telling a story. In discussing it, we found ourselves analyzing the filter Quentin Tarantino used in a specific scene, trying to figure out exactly which movies he paid homage to various action styles, and commented on the symmetry and flow of the styles. Like I said - a film geek/buff movie, which means it will do moderately well but not brilliantly.
The theater we saw it in was small and relatively empty and this was in Brooklyn. Considering how incredibly violent the movie is, it was disturbing to see several unchaperoned thirteen year olds sitting in the front row. It makes Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs look like Saturday Matinees by comparison.
