    Tarantino just stole the whole idea and coolness for Kill Bill from this film 8 years 6 months ago

    I knew Lady Snowblood was one of the inspirations for Tarantino's Kill Bill, but I didn't realize just how MUCH. At times, it felt like Kill Bill was really a remake of this 1973 Japanese classic. The basic plot, the structure, the music, and archetypes are generously borrowed from this film. Though in some ways, it's more epic, or perhaps I should say operatic. Snowblood isn't just an assassin bent on revenge, she's a demon brought into this world to carry on her mother's vendetta. This maverick blood-drenched masterpiece has so much stylish flare, it hurts, the forced contrast between snowy white purity and bloody red at once shocking and beautiful. As with much of Asian cinema, Lady Snowblood takes no time at all to make you hate its irredeemable villains and thus appreciate the carnage visited upon them by the heroine. Your hands and conscience are clean, watch with glee. 7 years 4 months ago
