5.0 out of 5 stars A gem in an overpopulated genre 5 Nov 2000
Format:VHS Tape
It's unfortunate that this came out so soon after the 'Tarantino' media mayhem. Unfortunate because it should not have been compared / contrasted to anything to do with the man - Roger Avary holds his own as quite possibly a revolutionary director here. The film is tense, brutal but possesses a spirit missing from many films of the same ilk. Eric Stoltz is excellent as a man caught up in the whirlwind events - drifting with no purpose it's almost as if he's suddnely shocked by life and 'woken up' by the events that unfold. A great cast, superb score and a dark pretext make this a fantastic film. I'm looking forward to the DVD!

5.0 out of 5 stars She's Got Issues... 16 Feb 2003
By Stu W
Format:VHS Tape
Inspite of being released far too soon after the Tarantino hype, this beats Pulp Fiction and Resevoir Dogs hands down. On the surface it's just a bank robebry film, which semi-explores issues of morality, AIDS, death, drug abuse and prostitution. However, look a little closer and a weaving line of complexity appears which slowly dances through the plot, backed up with some excellent photography, set design and stunning lighting effects, considering the budget.
Personally, I really enjoyed this film, it was both mature and beautiful, exploring issues that not many would have the nerve to. A very intelligent and well though out plot and some excellent sets - a red bank vault?
As with all films of this subtle complexity, I don't think it will be to everyone's taste, but if you liked Donnie Darko, and managed to unravel the sub plot to Mulholland Drive but like a less surreal film, try this one on for size. Films that make you think, now there's an idea?!?!?

4.0 out of 5 stars Love, Drugs and violence like only Tarantino can do 28 April 2010
This is a great little film, starring Eric Stoltz and Julie Delpy. Set in france it's the usual Tarantino mix of violence, drugs, guns and great dialogue. This film reminds me a lot of True Romance - as it is basically a love story - centred around a bank robbery that goes horribly wrong. Great stuff!

I think this film will ferment like wine fine eventually resurfacing as a forgotten cult classic. I saw it years ago in the post-pulp fiction hype 1996 and was dissappointed by the apparent boredom and mediocrity of it's central premise. However I saw it recently and finally recognized it as a satire of film genres very much in the vein of Tarantino's popular films. The characters seem like extras who didn't make it to the final cut of Pulp Fiction, resembling the stoners and dropouts that Jules and Vincent torment and kill in Pulp Fiction - this movie is about a generation who has simply watched to many violent movies. The prostition, drugs and aids in the film shatter the fantasy that the would-be backrobbers have about their plans in the film giving it a genuine sense of misery and apathy that the Eric Stoltz character 'Zed' (aka Lance from Pupl Fiction) fails to register.

The performances are ridiculous, and Stoltz seems to act like he's in the wrong place (or wrong film). Avary enjoys referencing better heist movies like Riffi, Reservoir Dogs, French Connection and Point Break, and distills the film with a morbid sense of dread and confusion that tells us this is not going to end well. The final ambigious ending where the characters driving off into city of Paris gives the film a final romantic twist that leaves us hoping these losers will clean up, but only suggests that the ride continues - very much like Iggy Pop said in his song the Passanger where he talks about Jim Morrison. You can switch cars and change direction but never actually get out of the car, just make sure your with the right people.

4.0 out of 5 stars See it through to the end 4 Feb 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
At the start this film is pretty average, but stick with until the final third and it really kicks in. The bank scene is superbly done and its just a same that the drug taking is a bit long and overdrawn.

By John Peter O'connor VINE VOICE
Format:VHS Tape
Killing Zoe is first and foremost, a standard bank robbery action picture but it attempts to add in comment about the way that a death sentence from AIDS breeds a destructive nihilism in one of its victims. But in truth the film works best when seen just as an action picture.
Eric Stoltz plays Zed, an American safe cracker invited to Paris by his old childhood friend Eric (Jean-Hugues Anglade) for a heist. On arrival, Zed takes up a cab driver's recommendation for a call girl and thus he meets Zoe (Julie Delpy) They enjoy their few hours together and exchange compliments but before they explore whether or not this is just politeness, they are very rudely interrupted by Eric who wants Zed to come and get ready for the job.
Zed is very happy to see his old friend but he is somewhat surprised at his manner. Eric is dying from AIDS and is living every moment to extremes. Drugs and violence excite Eric and this raises a question about his motivation for the bank raid. Is he planning the robbery for money which he will never live to spend or just for the thrill of the crime itself?
After a night of drugs and booze the gang gets down to business and hits the bank. While Zed gets on with the safe, Eric and his gang go wild and soon there are bullets and corpses galore and the police arrive to lay siege to the bank, gang and few remaining hostages.
In the midst of all this, Zed and Eric discover that Zoe's day job is at the bank.
As a hold up movie, with lots of action this film is good entertainment. The only weakness is the slow night before the heist when everyone is getting stoned. We see hints of Eric's world view but nothing is really explored. Eric is dying and nobody can threaten him with anything worse than his HIV death sentence but this is barely touched upon.
