First off, if anyone is going to post spoilers, please do box them.
That taken care of, on to my post…
Is it just me or does Lucy Liu look beautiful in Kill Bill? I don’t mean cute, I don’t mean pretty, I don’t mean sexy, I don’t mean gorgeous…I mean beautiful.
I’m very female, very straight and very Indian, and I couldn’t take my eyes off her! Her hair and make-up were delicate and understated. She was graceful, she stood tall, her face was elegantly tranquil; the entire effect to me was of immense beauty. She looked like an unspoilt, ethereal winter landscape, but without the ‘coldness’.
I sound rather over the top, but I just can’t get over her in this movie. The one episode of Ally McBeal I’ve watched, my reaction to her character was “Ugh”. But in Kill Bill, I just…she’s just so… swoon
Have any of you ever felt this way about some other character in a movie, play or TV show? Where your admiration for that persona is completely asexual, simply aesthetic?
(Or am I just some kind of freak…?)
