The Hollywood Success of Lawrence Bender

October 10th, 2003 theaters around the country played the film Kill Bill vol. 1. From all the projects worked on by Hollywood producer Lawrence Bender, this movie is probably my favorite. A comfortable mixture of comedy, action, creative dialogue, and suspension of disbelief come together to create a memorable experience, and help build the brand that we know today as a “Tarantino Film.”

The opening scene hooks us with the early 70s stylized credits, accompanied by music fit for the theme and feel. However, the big seller here is the chemistry filled dialogue between star actress Uma Thurman’s character, whose name is kept secret from the audience until later in the franchise, and the deadly Bill, who is portrayed by David Carradine. It paints a picture of a blood-spattered bride, betrayed by former lover Bill, who in a fierce act of jealousy orders a hit on the only woman he ever loved.

The Kill Bill franchise brought a unique feel, and touch to the art of movie making. It showcases the keen eye Lawrence Bender has for casting, budgeting, marketing, and profit generation for a major Hollywood production. This skill set would generate a considerable amount of success for the renowned producer, and he would continue his work for audiences around the world to enjoy.

Prior to the release of Kill Bill, Lawrence Bender had already developed a reputation for producing these kinds of films. He had produced a slasher in 1989 titled Intruder, starring Bruce Campbell. His previous work with Tarantino in Reservoir Dogs had been nominated for the Independent Spirit Award for Best First Feature, and Pulp Fiction would earn him a nomination for an Academy Award. Later nominations for an Academy Award would include his films Good Will Hunting and Inglourious Basterds.

Aside from his life as a Hollywood Household name, Lawrence Bender has developed a reputation as a political activist as well. He is a founding member of Global Zero, a recipient of the Torch of Liberty Award from the ACLU, and throws fundraisers for political and social causes in Los Angeles.
