  • Kill Bill: Vol. 1 2003

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 25 Jan, 2015

    Tarantino films are really all homages to different genres, with Kill Bill obviously being one to Asian cinema. Kill Bill: Vol 1 is not only the directors best homage to a particular genre, but also his best film to date in my personal opinion.
