KILL BILL

The Whole Bloody Affair is a term that has been used by the press and Tarantino for the integral version of Kill Bill. That version premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2006 and is yet awaiting wide release. It is comprised of both Volumes of Kill Bill, plus material that is yet missing from the US and international versions (but was included in the Japanese release). The chapters will remain in order, the cliffhangers and tags will be dropped. Tarantino had Production IG do an additional 7 minute anime sequence for the O-Ren chapter, which was not shown at Cannes.

It has also been called the "version integral", especially in the French press.

Empire Online was one of the few online magazines that provide a review of the uncut Kill Bill. The version, that was shown in Cannes, combines both Volumes as one film (but did not yet have the additional anime footage)

Some changes, according to EO:

  • No "klingon proverb" quote. Instead a dedication
  • HOBL fight massacre in color, slightly differently cut
  • gorier anime scenes
  • extra anime footage added (stated in QT quote/Jan 09)
  • various other scenes slightly longer
  • Sofie Fatale loses more limbs
  • no "baby" cliffhanger ending
  • short (music-accompanied) intermission between two parts
  • Volume 2 is not different

Quentin Tarantino in an interview with us on January 12: "We’ve actually added some things to it. We did a whole little chapter that I wrote and designed for the animated sequence, that we never did, because we figured, back when it was gonna be one big movie, it was going to be too long, so we didn’t do it. So when we were talking about re-releasing it, they asked is there anything you can put in, and I said no I put everything in there, but… there’s one sequence that we wouldn’t even have to shoot! So we got together with Production IG and did it, and it’s really cool. So it’s this little seven minute sequence, it’s really cool, it’s in the O-Ren chapter."
