Woman on Top, 6 July 2014
Author: arsaib4 from NY

The air of ornamental grandeur and artifice that permeates the final, moonlit showdown between Uma Thurman's "The Bride" and Lucy Liu's O-Ren Ishii in Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003), right down to the blood calligraphy on the snowy ground, likely owes something to the duplicitous, hyper-ornate world of Chor Yuen—and not the least to the brutal yet stylized woman-on-woman offenses found in this lurid, voyeuristic masterpiece, whose greatness lies not only in its imaginative fusion of sexploitation and wuxia melodrama or its formal and visual elegance, but also in the way Chor manages to complicate the film's gender and sexual dynamics with a mere zoom-in to a lonely pair of eyes.
