Death Proof: Kick Ass!

October 5, 2009

After my very disappointing experience with the film Taxi Driver (1976), I went back to the old faithful: Quentin Tarantino.
Death Proof (2007) is a little different. It has the dirty roughness that you expect from Tarantino films, but it was different. It had the same feelings of Reservoir Dogs (1992), but still, different. Death Proof (2007) is focused on 2 sets of 3 girlfriends and with no reason at all, the actions of Stuntman Mike and his attempts to get away with murder.

In each of his films, Tarantino allows the audience to get comfortable with long-winded conversation, time consuming arguments and mundane activities…then BAM!!! No time to brace yourself. All that you took for granted; small talk, girlie friendships, boy troubles, characters with all their limbs… is gone. Amazing.

After the first half of the film you already despise Stuntman Mike, then something amazing happens. I can’t actually tell you what happens, it would ruin the experience entirely, and I can’t do that to you. What I can tell you is that by the time the credits roll, you will feel great. You wont only have a smile on your face, you might also giggle.

Brilliant soundtrack too! Check it out!

Till next time,

S
