I’ll be the first to acknowledge I’ve often dissed Tarantino. I loved Pulp Fiction but haven’t really liked anything he’s done since, until Deathproof, which I found, in one word, genius.

To me, this is him in perfect form (apart, of course, from his insistence at casting himself in his movies, his acting is forced and uncomfortable and I usually can’t wait for him to get off the screen). Perfect soundtrack, great casting, awesome lines, Americana in full force, with the muscle cars and car chase genres extolled to the max.

Reasons to see the movie: the cars, the hospital scene with the Texan sheriff, Sydney Poitier’s daughter, the car chase and Zoe Bell’s incredible stunt, Kurt Russell.

It’s violent, raw, often hilarious, and completely worth watching if you don’t mind flying body parts and gory scenes. It’s well worth it.
