After completing Killing Zoe, Roger Avary was asked what insight he'd gained from becoming a feature director. "You always see yourself in your work. You see yourself in scripts, in short stories, in poems, in super 8 film. And when I was making this movie, it was so big. It was bigger than anything I had ever done before. That big silver screen with real actors and sync sound and Tom Richmond's beautiful cinematography. It was so big that I started seeing all my good sides in it - and all my bad sides. It's a bit like therapy. That's when I realized what filmmaking was. It's really a journey of self discovery. I believe that every filmmaker - no matter how commercial he is, or how much an art house filmmaker they are - when they make their film, it's a little bit like what Werner Herzog does. The journey is the reward of making the film. What a filmmaker like Herzog will do is: he will walk to the edge of an abyss and stare into the blackness. And what you see when you stare into that inky pitch is your own face staring back at you. And it's terrifying. And it's debilitating. And it's enlightening. And it's horrible. And it's wonderful. And it's all emotions at once. And it's the most intense rush I can ever imagine. And it's what I dream about when I'm not making movies is to go through that again. As painful as it often is, it's fun." See more »

I love this movie. I just rented it again, and was not disappointed. Sure, it's bloody (Tarantino produced it) and nihilistic and all that, but it's also got a wonderful sense of anarchy that most films are afraid to commit too. As Emanuel Levy says in his book about independent cinema ("Cinema of Outsiders), "it promises to take off in unexpected directions but it's major distinction is it's gift for hysteria and pompous existentialism." It's all flash and blood and Julie Delphys breasts and guns and just a helluva lot of fun. Great out there performance by Jean-Hugues Anglade as the insane French bank robber and Eric Stoltz as the moral center (!?) of the madness. This film is even more fun when you've had a pint or two beforehand.
