The murderous Bride continues her quest of vengeance against her former boss and lover Bill, the reclusive bouncer Budd, and the treacherous, one-eyed Elle.
One of the things that makes Tarantino movies so interesting to watch is his disregard for traditional movie-telling. Most movies are told in a standard 3 act story:
- The first quarter of the movie
- Sets up the character and the situation
- The end of act one is given by the conflict arising. The rest of the movie is solving this conflict
- The character applies him or herself to the conflict
- This is where we get the meat of the story
- Usually there is a point that something so awful, so dreadful happens and you don't think the character can go on. This is your comeback moment, your aha moment where the character realizes what sacrifice is needed
- The end of act two is given by the...
- The last quarter of the movie
- The climax and then resolution of the movie where the characters come into equilibrium again
