Video of the Week: The Bride vs O-Ren Ishii

This week’s Video of the Week segment is one of my all-time favourite movie moments; the climactic battle between The Bride and O-Ren in Kill Bill: Vol 1. Everything about it just works so well, the small subtleties in movement, the noise of the water-feature, the tension, the action and, of course, the stunning musical accompaniment provided by Santa Esmeralda and their cover of Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood. The only thing that slightly tarnishes this video for me is that I couldn’t find the actual English-language cut of the scene, so parts of this are in Portuguese. Still, it’s a badass moment in movie history.

Stunning.
