We previously predicted that the forthcoming Quentin Tarantino movie Kill Bill would be chopped into three pieces by its studio, Miramax Films. Our prediction was that Miramax would put a moistened finger into the air and then mold whatever product it had in its pipeline to better fit market demands, which these days would mean producing a trilogy with a built-in audience. Lacking that, it would chop. Meanwhile, we conjectured, Tarantino would nod politely while still being referred to as an independent filmmaker in most of the press. We were grossly in error and apologize profusely: we've learned that Kill Bill will only be chopped into two pieces because, in the words of Miramax chief Harvey Weinstein, Tarantino is being given "carte blanche." We will refrain from making predictions in the future.
Sorry for this brief interruption from the business pages. Now back to the movies.
