  1. Eric Eidelstein's rating of the film Lady Snowblood

    Under my umbrella (ella ella eh eh eh).

  2. João Portalegre's rating of the film Lady Snowblood

  3. Nick Schwab's rating of the film Lady Snowblood

    A film that shows that it can be best to have nothing to say at all. Many revenge films have a schmaltzy circle-of-revenge sentiment, this just tells an engaging story, with plenty of proto-Tarantino style. Where the Kill Bill films were inspired by this first film, Lady Snowblood compacts the same story into a 2 1/2 hour shorter runtime. It's straight-forward and effective in its fast, minimalistic pace.

  4. Renton47's rating of the film Lady Snowblood

    Snowblood moves with the cruel efficiency of someone birthed for death, taking names but rarely taking pleasure. Of course it's the opposite for us because Fujita's world is so rooted in joy; colourful and lavishly designed sets, novel and badass editing techniques. But how unsatisfying the task, esp. when she/we're denied the catharsis of 'noble' vengeance until the more bonkers third-act.

  9. Linda Wittgenstein's rating of the film Lady Snowblood

  10. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film Lady Snowblood

    Ultimately I wouldn't say it evokes a whole lot in the way of meaning. It is a stylish thriller that wraps with every single character a victim of the cycle of revenge, but it's not REALLY about that and it doesn't try to insult us by paying thematic lip service to revenge's consequences, though it delivers more than Kill Bill in that regard. Also displays a nice sense of visual poeticism.

  11. DenoResandono's rating of the film Lady Snowblood

    Blood-sprayed, blood-sprayed, blood-sprayed, blood-sprayed, and blood-sprayed. Are the main reason I enjoyed this movie so much. The plot is a little bit muddled. Now I can see why this movie inspired Quentin Tarantino for his "Kill Bill". One of the entertaining piece from Japanese cinema...

  12. Aardsy's rating of the film Lady Snowblood

    Stylish and fun, but lacking weight to make it great.

  13. Lucia0550's rating of the film Lady Snowblood

  14. Scorpio Velvet's rating of the film Lady Snowblood

    The film that influenced Tarantino to create Kill Bill - wildly bloody and gorgeously colorful.

  15. James Mackin's rating of the film Lady Snowblood

    A beautiful badass hit of a movie. Tarantino pretty blatantly references this film a lot with Kill Bill, and for good reason.

  16. bryanvmh's rating of the film Lady Snowblood

  17. M****'s rating of the film Lady Snowblood

  18. das Kino's rating of the film Lady Snowblood

    The only reason not to give this 6 stars is because of this rating system.

  19. Kevin Costner's rating of the film Lady Snowblood

    Kill Bill ? TOTALLY OVERRATED !

  20. the_mentaculus's rating of the film Lady Snowblood

    Doesn't work as an exploitation, but it's a helluva movie. It has that garish Toho color chiaroscuro, a fairly clever editing logic, and an adept Meiko Kaji, embodying needed pain and menace behind a thick layer of animus. The constant dialogue exposition conflicts with every realized scene.

  21. Ethan's rating of the film Lady Snowblood

    This is a great masterpiece of revenge. In just over an hour and half this movie feels more epic than any other movie. This is where Tarantino got inspiration for Kill Bill.

  22. Joey Wright's rating of the film Lady Snowblood

    If you are a fan of QT this is essential viewing material. I had long heard this film influenced Kill Bill, but was surprised to see how much it inspired the way he makes films period. Chapter breaks, the score, the use of music in general, projectile blood, and countless other Tarantino staples are on full display here.
