Kill Bill: Revisited Edition (Released)

Kill Bill is an incredible two part epic from mastermind writer and director, Quentin Tarantino. However, there is something about it that didn’t quite sit right with me, and the was the narrative structure.

Volume 1 has a lot of action, whereas Volume 2 has very little action, but much more story and character development. While Tarantino is known for non-chronological storytelling, I don’t think he did as good of a job here as he did with Pulp Fiction.

My intention here is not to replace Volumes 1 and 2 the way they were made, but rather present an alternate version of Kill Bill, condensed into one feature length film, with its narrative re-structured in a more traditional way.

My re-structure is based off of James Rolfe’s pitch, which you can view here:

Funny thing that I am doing something similar as my next project 😛

One movie, chronological (except flashbacks from more distant past), re-scored, grindhoused, I’d expect running time somewhere between 2-2,5 hours.

But the order of the scenes will be different.

Very interesting alternative.
