Postmodernism Lecture 1: Kill Bill Vol. 1 (2003)

Having watched Kill Bill many times and been a big fan of Tarantino for a long while now and have come to understand how he works and where he takes his inspiration from. With Kill Bill for example you can clearly see the use of the old martial arts films of the 70's where there was lots of blood and limbs going missing. Also spaghetti westerns are another big influence on Tarantino's work, which can also be seen in Kill Bill.

The great thing about his films is that he can take complete different genres, mix them together and make something completely new and fresh that he can call his own. With many of his films he fills them with so many exaggerated stereotypes making that much more a great piece of film making.
