Yeah, I'm already starting to realize that I'm going to be in the minority with that one. It's not the first time though that I've had issues with Tarantino's work.

While I am sad to see your distaste for Kill Bill, I'm glad you dug Strange Circus. Did you post on it in the Last Movie thread because I'm not sure I saw it.


I didn't write about it in the Last Movie thread; it was one of many that I wanted to write about but never got around to, for whatever reason. That's something I'm going to try to be better at here in 2013.

But yeah, I was genuinely impressed with it. It's got an almost Lynchian feel, the way it toys with the ideas, and our perceptions of, reality and identity. Still, I'm not sure even David Lynch has gone quite as far as Sono does, in terms of the traumatic and touchy subject matter that is put onscreen. It's not an easy watch, but I'm glad I gave it a chance; Masumi Miyazaki's incredible performance alone is reason enough to see it. Thanks for the rec, I'll probably tackle Love Exposure next.

As for Kill Bill, I always go back to it every few years to see if something finally clicks for me. There are individual moments that are great, but I think it gets too bogged down in unnecessary, and sometimes frankly quite dull, material, along with Tarantino's stylistic quirks that I've never been able to embrace.
