lol, I'm a huge fan of Truffaut.....and Bride Wore Black is a great Truffaut trip into Hitchcock territory.....

but I never thought of Kill Bill as a Bride Wore Black rip-off until now....and now I can't fathom how it never crossed my mind before.

thanks for pointing out the obvious to me, as i seemed to have missed it, lol.

interview with Tarantino by Tomohiro Machiyama

TM: How about The Bride Wore Black (1968, Francois Truffaut, France)?

QT: Here's the thing. I've never actually seen The Bride Wore Black.

TM: Really?

QT: I know of it, but I've never seen it. Everyone is like, "oh, this is really similar to The Bride Wore Black." I've heard of the movie. Its based on a Cornell Woolrich novel too, but it's a movie I've never seen. The reason I've never seen it is because…I've just never been a huge Truffaut fan. So that's why I never got around to see it. I'm not rejecting it, I just never saw it. I'm a Godard fan, not a Truffaut fan. So I know of it, I know all that stuff, but it's a movie I've never seen.

TM: I thought of it because The Bride has that list of names she checks off.

QT: Oh, is that in there too?
