Kill Bill Vol. 1 is one of the goriest movies I have seen in a while. The violence in the movie is incredibly balletic, each move contemplated, each pause relevant. In a way, there is kind of a dichotomy here: the chaos inherent in violence is played out in choreographed moves. I really enjoyed this movie although by the end, I was a little numb from all the violence.
Here's Salon's take on the movie.
