Elle Driver

Elle Driver, AKA California Mountain Snake, is another swordswoman loyal to Bill. She was trained by Pai Mei, like Bill and The Bride, but upon disrespecting Pai Mei, he plucked out one of Elle's eyes, and thus she wore a distinctive eyepatch ever since. In retaliation, she murdered Pai Mei by poisoning his food. She is depicted as being excessively greedy and sadistic, offering large amounts of money to buy The Bride's Hanzo sword from Budd, then killing him with a live Black Mamba snake. Her hatred for The Bride stems from jealousy over her close relationship with Bill, though she also respects The Bride as "the greatest warrior [she] had ever known." In their climactic fight, The Bride pulls out Elle's other eye and leaves her for dead; as Pai Mei declared The Bride's arm "his" when he began training her, he in effect took both of Driver's eyes. Elle's fate is open to interpretation by end of the second film, in the final credits all the dead DiVAS have a line through their name. However Elle has a ? over it.

Kill Bill

Kill Bill is the fourth film by writer-director Quentin Tarantino. Originally conceived as one film, it was released in two separate volumes (in Autumn 2003 and Spring 2004) due to its running time of approximately four hours. The movie is an epic-length revenge drama, with homages to earlier film genres, such as Hong Kong martial arts movies, Japanese samurai movies and Italian spaghetti westerns; an extensive use of popular music and pop culture references; and deliberate over-the-top violence.Kill Bill is one story, divided into two volumes with five "chapters" each, presented in a nonlinear style...
