Cinefex delves into the special effects of Kill Bill

Tarantino insisted on a practical approach even in instances where CG seemed the logical choice. For a sequence in Vol. 1, where Viper assassin O-Ren Ishi (Lucy Liu) loses the top of her head to Uma Thurman’s saber-wielding Bride, Berger and his crew took a casting of Liu’s head, then sculpted an appliance that took advantage of forced perspective …Specific camera angles on the appliance further sold the illusion.

Yeah, not so much for me. The scalp prosthetic for O-Ren Ishi has always looks very off to me.

One of my all time favorites.
