Killed Bill


David Denby in The New Yorker on Kill Bill--Vol. 1:

“Kill Bill” is what’s formally known as decadence and commonly known as crap. It will doubtless cause enormous excitement among the kind of pop archivists for whom the merest reference to a Run Run Shaw kung-fu picture from 1977 is deliciously naughty—a frisson de schlock that, for them, replaces any other vital response to a movie...Coming out of this dazzling, whirling movie, I felt nothing—not anger, not dismay, not amusement. Nothing.

Bet he can't wait for volume two.
