Topic: Tarantino's use of Black and White
There are 2 scenes i'm thinking of...
1. In Kill Bill when Uma is fighting the Crazy 88 in the bar and the color shifts to black and white
2. In Death Proof when Kurt Russell licks Rosario Dawsons foot and it's in black and white
I know he shifts to black and white in Kill Bill so avoid showing too much red blood to get it past the censors but does anyone else think that Tarantino sucks at black and white? In both cases the switch to black and white looks completely unmotivated and when it is in black and white the shots do not look they are lit properly... lighting is supposed to be done differently for B/W compared to color..
Does he do it to make his films look artier or something?? If so, that's silly..
