Saw a screening of Kill Bill at the Kendall tonight with Corinna. Not supposed to talk about it, which is why this is marked Friends Only. I’ll write a review about it for The Brain, but I’ll keep it to me until the movie is released in October.
I expected the movie to suck ass, and was completely blown away by what I was shown tonight. The film, “Kill Bill: Part I”, seemed complete, and had a full score (by RZA) as well as soundtrack. Editing seemed complete, and while there were no ending credits, there were front title cards.
I saw the teaser trailer for this film and was really disappointed. The trailer made the film look hokey, and gave no inkling of the plot. I am pleased to say that Mr. Tarantino has done a fine job with this film, and while I took issue with certain parts of the plot, overall I think it is a great film. And beautiful too; Almost every shot was framed beautifully, and the camerawork was excellent. The plot is so much better than I expected, I could gush. I really don’t want to get into it, as I feel you’re better off knowing nothing, but just take my recommendation blindly: It’s a damn good film.
Quentin Tarantino introduced the film, and was his dorky self. He stuck around in the theater lobby afterwards, and I shook his hand and thanked him for the movie. He was really gracious and thanked me for coming out. There were tons of other people waiting, so I didn’t have a conversation with him… He seemed as nice as everyone made him out to be… That’s all I have to say for now.
