Roger Avary's original script had Eric claim, after killing one of the hostages, that if they get caught now they'd receive the death penalty. During script reads, Jean-Hugues Anglade pointed out that there is no death penalty in France. This led to the exchange where Eric claims they'll get the death penalty, and Zed says he thought France abolished it. Eric replies, "Yeah, that's what they want you to think." See more »

To begin with, I am a huge fan of Quentin Tarantino, so it's hard for me to say anything negative about any film that he's associated with, especially this one. Killing Zoe is basically another example of QT's brilliance in the art of production. After seeing most of Tarantino's films (the only one's I haven't seen are My Best Friend's Birthday and Past Midnight), it has become easy to spot the little golden pieces of QT that make his films his own. In Killing Zoe, it's the moment after finishing the movie when you've pressed the stop button and stare at the blank screen, and you're finally able to exhale because when you're watching KZ, you forget that it's just a movie. KZ can be an overwhelming peice of work; it's fast paced, brutal, and it gives a frightening look into the mind of a sociopathic smack addicted criminal with a "see what happens as we go along" attitude. Another aspect of this film that gives it away as a Tarantino production is the slightly twisted and quickly developed romance that sparks between the main character (Zed) and a call girl (Zoe). As unlikely as the relationship may seem, there is also something very real about the whole love situation that makes it believable and leaves no room for sappy details. All in all I enjoyed this movie very much and if you haven't already, Go See It!
