kill bill & movie making

here's what the seasoned film reviewer, roger ebert, has to say on the subject acting in the context of kill bill (woohoo uma!):

"Kill Bill, Volume 1" is not the kind of movie that inspires discussion of the acting, but what Thurman, Fox and Liu accomplish here is arguably more difficult than playing the nuanced heroine of a Sundance thumb-sucker. There must be presence, physical grace, strength, personality and the ability to look serious while doing ridiculous things.

Thank you, roger.

gosh, i love kill bill. so stylised, so violent, yet so... cool... no, not the violence. if i praised the violence i'd be some sadistic freak (like bill), but his filmmaking is truly something to marvel at.
