Rate the movie (explain please)
Just received my DVD of the Master of the Flying Guillotine!
It’s one of QT’s and Sam Jackson’s favorite all-time old school martial art films.
In an early draft of True Romance the movie Clarence and Alabama are watching is not A Better Tomorrow 2, but The Incredible One-Armed Boxer Versus The Master of the Flying Guillotine (the longer alternate title for the film)!
It has commentary by two LA film critics… the only wish I have was that QT and Sam Jackson had a commentary track! Ã‚Â
I think it gives a preview of what me may expect from KILL BILL!
It opens on a lonely and desolate craggy mountain side with a white-haired and white-eyebrowed (!) blind kung fu master! Ã‚Â He receives a note that his two disciples are dead and he goes a mission to avenge them.
The electronic score is awesome.
I will watch the rest of it in an hour or two and then report any insights I think it will give to the filming style and aesthetic “look” of KILL BILL.
