We can't all be Quentin Tarantino, but that doesn't stop some people from trying.
Sushi Girl is intermittently stylish and relatively technically competent but so painfully derivative that it's at times embarrassing to watch. Saxton really loves his Tarantino and if you do too you may marginally tolerate this violent piece of fodder.
There's nothing wrong with paying homage to a film that went before (Reservoir Dogs), if you make it clear that's what you're doing. I never got that vibe with "Sushi Girl."
The real shock of Sushi Girl is how it manages to hold interest despite its familiar moves, working to build a grim personality of its own. Saxton and Pfaff have managed to pull off an entertaining picture.
