Elle Driver uses her mobile phone while standing next to The
Bride's life-support machine. Mobile phones interfere with hospital equipment. - Cell phones disrupt some hospital equipment, but not all. More likely it would affect the readings of a heart monitor than a "life-support machine". A conversation of a few seconds might have no effect on the machine whatsoever. In any case, Elle would not have been concerned about this. See more »
Do you find me sadistic? You know, I bet I could fry an egg on your head right now, if I wanted to. You know, Kiddo, I'd like to believe that you're aware enough even now to know that there's nothing sadistic in my actions. Well, maybe towards those other... jokers, but not you. No Kiddo, at this moment, this is me at my most...
Bill... it's your baby...

Probably Tarantino's most universal movie to date, with a little less character dependency than most of his films and a more linear approach than usual, Kill Bill Volume 1 is a great place to start for anyone new to his movies. I don't mean to imply this is a shallow film (far from it), i simply found it easier on the mind than Tarantino's other movies.
Uma Thurman, left for dead by her ex-boyfriend (Bill) doesn't die and begins her quest for vengeance, by hunting down Bill's gang members in a search for Bill. Armed with a Samurai sword and a deadly blend of martial arts skills, Uma delivers action, violence and passion as she plays out the character with beautiful precision.
Need i say, this is excellently directed, brilliantly scripted and cast, and should be in everyone's Tarantino collection.
10/10 Second only to Pulp Fiction. Although it has wider appeal (I think)
