Uma Thurman is arrestingly focused and hard-core in the Kill Bill movies, but I don’t quite get her being nominated for Best Dramatic Actress award by both the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and the Broadcast Film Critics Association for her work in Kill Bill, Vol. 2. Just as Truman Capote once said of Jack Kerouac’s stream-of-beat-consciousness prose in On The Road, “That’s not writing, that’s typing!,” I would say of Thurman’s Bill perfs, “That’s not acting, that’s martial-arts training!” For the most part, anyway.
