MEDIA: Zeitgeist - A new Tarantino movie will see creatives filling ads with Samurai and severed limbs

"My fans are gonna love this one," Quentin Tarantino says. Crap story, great dialogue, some critics say. Self-indulgent, others say. Tarantino has shifted his choreographed violence into an Oriental setting and the Bill of the title is a Samurai-style swordsman who kills everyone but the bride at a wedding. The bride (played by Uma Thurman) eventually sets off on a blood-soaked trail of revenge.

It is, Tarantino says, the ultimate exploitation movie but, as the body (and severed limb) count rises, it's either numbing or comic, according to your taste. And this is merely part one with part two of the three-hour epic due out next year.

Even an off-form Tarantino offering will be avidly devoured by a creative community that has plundered his scripts and visual style - and the badass posturing of his characters - so freely in the past.
