KILL BILL: VOL. 1 & VOL. 2
June 2, 2012  | By David Bianculli

IFC, 8:00 p.m. ET

 
This story, in two parts, features several of Tarantino's basic film ingredients coming together in one place: a B-grade martial arts story, noir-meets-comic book dialog and a worthy female adversary (namely the fearless Uma Thurman, in a yellow track suit). The Kill Bill films also helped to revive the career of David Carradine, much like Pulp Fiction brought back John Travolta. As a filmmaker, Tarantino is like an abstract painter swinging a wild brush — or in this case, a Samurai's' sacred sword. Somehow, it comes together into something great. Kill Bill Vol. 2 follows Vol. 1, at 10:15 p.m. ET.
