After Jackie Brown, Tarantino didn't bring a movie to theaters for six years when he went in a completely different direction with a two-part love letter to over-the-top Kung Fu movies and spaghetti westerns.
Kill Bill: Vol. 1 was released in 2003 and Vol. 2 followed in 2004. The first movie is a straight up martial arts film starring Uma Thurman as The Bride, a wronged woman who swears revenge on a team of assassins and their leader, Bill, after they try to kill her and her unborn child. Her revenge quest takes her to Japan where she takes on the Yakuza in Tokyo.
As evidence of how much of a departure the movie was for QT, it features an anime sequence created by Production I.G.
Vol. 2, which was shot concurrently with Vol. 1, is more of a western with a few more guns and fewer swords, that sees The Bride continue her revenge mission against the "Deadly Viper Assassin Squad," (Lucy Liu, Michael Madsen, Daryl Hannah, and Vivica A. Fox) which is an awful lot like the Fox Force Five TV show that Uma's character Mia Wallace describes in Pulp Fiction.
The films were the highest grossing of Tarantino's career at the time.
