I watched Kill Bill Vol. 2 last night. I don't think anybody but QT could have got away with making such a self-indulgent film. It's much less of a slick action film than Vol. 1, and much more of the endless homage to spaghetti westerns and '70s kung-fu films. It's still quite an amusing, fun film to watch; but seems to lack real depth beneath the veneer of irony.
