    What. A. Film!

    Even when it is flawed (peach allergy) the eccentric energy powers it through. Silly and sincere in equal measures. And despite feeling like a cross between A Woman, a Gun and a Noodle Shop and Martyrs this still manages to come across as being utterly original. Whether you see the twists coming or not doesn't matter when they're delivered with such aplomb.

    And a numb arse!

    A great analysis and retrospective of Tarantino's work to date. Yes, wr're being asked to forget Four Rooms and to accept Kill Bill as one film.

    The contributors are most of QT's key players. It's a shame that the man himself doesn't feature but perhaps that woukd derail the objective a little. Times just after the Weinstein indictment but u St before the release of OAATIH.

    Still feels fresh. Laugh out loud funny, sends up the genre perfectly, and Cage is excellent.

    An all round bona-fide British classic. Heart-warmingly funny with a top notch cast and tremendous effects. Could become a Christmas favourite for all the family.
