In addition to App of the week, every Thursday Apple chooses a Movie of the week, whose purchase is only $ 3. The title selected this time was Kill Bill: Volume 1, by Quentin Tarantino.
Check out his trailer:
Here's what Apple says about the movie:
Quentin Tarantino has been out of theaters for six years since "Kill Bill". Although the director's original idea was to make a film in the style of "Grindhouse", the film ended up growing so much in size and boldness that it had to be divided into two parts. The simple script, in which ?the Bride? (Uma Thurman) takes revenge on four former colleagues and always accompanied by the mysterious ?Bill?, has been extended to pique proportions. In Kill Bill: Volume 1, the Bride eliminates two villains: Vernita Green (Vivica A. Fox) and O-Ren Ishii (Lucy Liu). Along the way, she will stop to pick up a magnificent sword created by a Japanese master (Sonny Chiba). Tarantino moves inspired by the aesthetic of Sergio Leone's spaghetti western films, the kung-fu style of the film producer Shaw Brothers and even a Japanese anime sequence. The director grants space and time for violent battles but also includes a delicious sense of anticipation. You even have time to hear a needle falling on the floor.
As usual, our reader Renato Alan Promenzio (@tripalavra), who is a cardholder, was also willing to send us a personalized comment about the film:
I remember that, in one of his interviews, Tarantino said he was tired of always asking about Pulp Fiction. That was only until "Kill Bill" was released. The film was originally conceived at once, but it was very long (almost 4 hours). The idea was to follow the concept of the old Sonny Chiba films, but the stadiums then decided to separate the production into two volumes and we are talking about the first one. The production demanded a lot from the whole cast, mainly Uma Thurman, who practically had to literally train with Pai Mei (one of the characters in the franchise) to play the protagonist. I also highlight the soundtrack of the film, which includes classics by Ennio Morricone!
