Promotional, but still good
24 June 2009 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is a documentary found on the DVD of Kill Bill Vol. 1. It consists of interviews, behind the scenes footage and clips of the movie(typically the most bad-ass ones). Yes, the main focus here was definitely to hype the film, and some effort is made to ensure that the audience does not forget that this is an *action* piece. Nevertheless, it's plenty worth watching. The actors mainly talk about how it was to work with Quentin, and how much influence they got to have and so on, save for Uma, who tells the story of how she and he together came up with the idea and developed it. His inspirations and where certain things that are memorable, at times unforgettable, in the finished product, came from originally are divulged. Tarantino is, as always, an awful lot of fun to listen to, and his love for the craft, and excitement at getting to work on more of his favorite genres, shine through. This is just under 21 minutes long, and it's not boring. The pacing is fine. Editing is average and unsurprising. This is reasonable, overall. I recommend this to fans. 7/10
