Kill Bill: vol. 1

The Younger Son and I were on our own tonight, so we decided to watch a movie while we ate some drive-through burgers. He picked Kill Bill: vol. 1 (2003), which we were pretty sure would not be watchable for The Husband. I had bought both movies soon after the sad death of David Carradine, who plays the titular "Bill". Uma Thurman plays the woman out to kill Bill. Quentin Tarantino directs.


Variety says, "the picture displays the confidence, nerve and wild imagination that marked the filmmaker's earlier work, along with increased visual savvy." The Guardian describes it as "Brutally bloody and thrillingly callous from first to last". Rolling Stone calls it "damn near as good as Tarantino thinks it is."

  1. I watch this movie whenever I'm in a particularly dark mood. Or need to be in one.
