'Death Proof' Is Nowhere Near Critic-Proof
Even Quentin Tarantino admits that Death Proof is not his best work; it was created to pay homage, casually entertain, and serve as half of the Grindhouse duo with Robert Rodriguez’s Planet Terror, not necessarily stand on its own next to Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown.
But it’s a movie directed by Quentin Tarantino, and if you’re working your way through the Tarantino filmography, you can’t skip ahead. Plus, Kurt Russell as Stuntman Mike alone is worth the price of admission. Sit back, relax, and enjoy your two friends dissecting QT’s most forgettable film.
