November 15, 2019
A gleefully ultraviolent homage to the B-movie martial arts films of the 1970s. It's pure bloody pulp fiction packed into a tightly wound feature.

With its eclectic use of music and inventive mix of genres, Kill Bill is a striking and enigmatic revenge film visually and culturally rich and relentless in its action.

Something borrowed, something bloody. [Blu-ray]
