About this product
- DescriptionThe quirky, strange and utterly sagacious meditations of David Caradine written during the making of Quentin Taranti's contemporary classic in which Carradine played the lead role. When Carradine landed the lead role in Quentin Taranti's new film, Kill Bill, it catapulted him into the Hollywood limelight. This journal captures his experience of being courted by Taranti for the role of Bill and the subsequent two years spent making the two-part feature film with co-star Uma Thurman, minated for a Best Actress Golden Globe. In its mixture of autobiography and behind-the-scenes diary, The Kill Bill Diary takes the reader on a fascinating and witty journey into the world of film-making and the art of an acclaimed director. Along the way Carradine describes the martial arts training required for the role, the experience of filming in China, working with Taranti and falling in love with Uma Thurman while 'swinging a steel-tempered Samurai sword at her head'. In describing the pre-production, production and promoting of the film, Carradine gives readers a rare and wholly authentic insight into the creation of a Hollywood blockbuster and the experience of a screen legend.
