GO! Thurs­day, 9.30pm, AV15+ ( 2004)

Clos­ing in on the sadis­tic Bill ( David Car­ra­dine), be­trayed for­mer as­sas­sin The Bride ( Uma Thur­man, left) con­tin­ues on her Mad Max- like path of vengeance – two down, three to go – in Quentin Tarantino’s awe- in­spir­ing ac­tion du­plet. If Vol. 1 was the ul­ti­mate Satur­day- night drive- in spe­cial, then the adrenalin rush sub­sides for Vol. 2, a char­ac­ter study in which spaghetti western mo­tifs are spec­tac­u­larly jux­ta­posed with Tarantino’s pop- cul­tural ob­ses­sive­ness ( just wait till you hear his con­cept of Su­per­man mythol­ogy). It all adds up to pure ge­nius, and Thur­man’s en­durance is noth­ing short of mirac­u­lous.
