Having remoulded the crime movie genre with his first three films Tarantino followed it up with this rip-roaring tale of revenge following “The Bride” a character created with his leading lady Uma Thurman on the set of Pulp Fiction.

Spread across two films with Vol. 1 paying homage to his love of Eastern cinema drawing on inspiration from Shaw Bros. movies and Pop samurai cinema like Lady Snowblood and Lone Wolf and Cub. While with Vol. 2 he transfered his vision into a modern western.

We look at the films which inspired his vision, how the soundtrack has lived on through reality TV as well as some insightful differences in the translation plus more.
