His name is Lawrence Bender is he is known for a hand full of spectacular movie productions, One of them being the Kill Bill series. Kill Bill: Vol. 1 is one of the most unexpected movie hits of all time. Imagine a movie that surprises you in every scene, makes you second guess what was going to happen next, while at the same time fulfilling everything you were hoping for in a great movie. Most people would read the summary of the movie and not expect it to be so amazing, but this is what made this movie so exciting.
