Movie and Album of the Month
From now on, DeepLake will bring you monthly reviews of our favourite films and albums. The films or albums won't necessarily be new -- they'll be what we at DeepLake thing are the best.
Movie of the Month:
At DeepLake we were a bit concerned to see Kill Bill being almost entirely promoted on the director's name, but thankfully the film was good enough to stand out on its own.
The film tells the story of an assasin called 'The Bride' (played by Uma Thurman) who is nearly killed at her wedding. After being in a coma, she seeks revenge against the people who put her there, the Deadly Viper Assasination Squad. It's an excellent film, told in Quentin Tarantino's typical flashback style. I don't want to say anything else because I don't want to spoil it for you.
Just a little word of caution: the film is extremely violent, so if that's not your thing, then you should probably avoid the film. However, we can't wait for the concluding part of the story!
Album of the Month:
The Kill Bill soundtrack, with Quentin Tarantino on board as executive producer, is of a very high standard. It ranges from calm and slow (Nancy Sinatra - My Baby Shot me Down, used for the opening titles) to instrumental ("Fight without dignity and honour", an excellent song featured in the radio and TV trailers for the film) and almost country/Western style.
In summary, Kill Bill's soundtrack is a great addition to your music collection. I hope Quentin Tarantino can top it (or at least equal it) for volume 2.
