I finally watched Kill Bill vol. 1. What a tedious movie! I generally love obsessive geekishness and formalism in making art, particularly movies. But it's important that the movie also actually be about something. That it have a point.

That's why I liked Jackie Brown so much: Tarantino could indulge his obsession to homage while actually telling a meaningful human story. You know what would be brilliant? A Dogme 95 Quentin Tarantino film. Have the filmgeek boy make a movie without all the lighting and editing tricks. Restriction is freedom.
