Zed has only just arrived in the beautiful Paris and already he's up to no good. Having just slept with a call girl, he spends a night on the town with his dangerous friends. They all decide to rob a bank the following day. There's only one problem: Zed's call-girl, Zoe, just happens to work at the bank which is to be robbed! Written by

The line asking Zed if he likes viking films was included because writer/director Roger Avary liked the characters to vikings, "a bunch of brutes that just rape and pillage and wear funny helmets (in this case masks) and don't worry about tomorrow. It's all about getting maximum pleasure right now and not giving a shit about if they hurt anybody else or if it has consequences." This is why Beowulf was assigned reading for the cast. See more »
As they enter the jazz club on the night before the heist, a Dixieland band is heard and seen playing, but the drummer is obviously not touching the drums with the drum sticks. See more »
So Eric tells me you like Viking films. Viking movies.
Yeah... I guess.
I love that stuff. Those helmets with the fucking horns on!

Much hated by Tarantino-lovin' geeks who often haven't even bothered to see it, KILLING ZOE is a nasty and hilarious gem, lacking much of Quentin's trademark video clerk snottines n' know-it-all nerdy attitude. Combining elements of old French noir flicks with a true nihilistic slant, Avary's flick is a true avant-pop classic.
