    What -- you think he didn't already plan to kill her by the time he showed up at the church to talk to her?
    His hit team was waiting to go in as soon as he left.

    (I happen to think he's P too, but the reason you describe doesn't really amount to a good reason.)

    I agree that Kiddo is hard to pin down.

    I'm having a hard time seeing an ISTP reference Superman the way Bill did. Might be my favorite part of the movie actually.. Not that ISTPs don't read comics. They do, of course. It's just the way he mused on things. Not a very direct guy, at least.

    Well, part of the issue again is that the characters are symbolic, not necessarily meant to be fleshed out individuals.

    She's basically "Momma Bear." She is driven by revenge for her lost child... and inadvertently regains her at the end as well as her lost humanity. She comes out of a mental coma but never really becomes human until the film is concluding. In terms of how she behaves, I think we could all agree on Ixxx since she internalizes things / operates out of an inner core rather than operating from an external basis. But the rest can be difficult.

    Interesting... I felt like the whole Superman thing was interesting as analogy, but it disrupted the flow of the narrative up to that point -- it was like the whole film just stopped so one of the characters could make a soliloquy to the audience to get some point across. (There was a lot of power in Kiddo's scenes with Bill, though... because we're waiting for this immediate loud explosive fight, and when things go in a different direction, the tension keeps building. That was a smart way for Tarantino to play it.)

    It's just so Tarantino. You kind of have to expect this exact sort of thing to happen in all his movies.
