Death Proof Directed by Quentin Tarantino

Critics reviews

What may have seemed on first glance like just a feature-length gimmick is perhaps Tarantino’s purest, even most radical film, made up of a complex interplay of gazes and perspective shifts and whose narrative effectively functions as two mirrored halves gazing at one another.

  • Sam DiSalle's rating of the film Death Proof

    in my opinion tarantino's best soundtrack, just song-for-song. there's a lot of really unnecessary dialogue in this but 20% or so of it is among tarantino's best. there's plenty to savor here but tarantino once again tries to combine too many elements. we've got like 70's muscle car movies, linklater, giallo, slasher movies, russ meyer, etc. and it's just too much competing for prominence to be fully satisfying

  • dionysus67's rating of the film Death Proof

    Forgetting that the main rule when indulging in one's prejudices and fetishes is to integrate these into an overarching context rather than bringing them frontstage, Tarantino's interplay of girl power and rampant foot fetishism follows the well-tested avenue of the psychopath on the road adding the expected dose of violence and titillating sexuality. As a revenge on male iconogrpahy it is harmless and noisy stuff.

  • dave gunn's rating of the film Death Proof

    Sure, Tarantino may have failed in making an intentionally "bad" movie as an homage to early grindhouse films, but is that so awful? He can't help himself. This is probably his most fun film because it's not as heavy as the others, but still isn't without the extreme violence and clever dialog that we have come to know him for. The ending might disappoint a lot of people, but all it did for me was make me laugh.

  • DrFirestone's rating of the film Death Proof

    Definitely tops Planet Terror, and straight off has that Tarantino feel to it. It's all over the top mad, the characters are crazy bad ass and most of them have that difficult to pull of charm to them. Death Proof starts slow and the beginning isn't very promising, I found it boring and the characters rather annoying, however it definitely picks up later on, the second story is way better in my opinion.

  • J. O.'s rating of the film Death Proof

    Hell of a car chase, that's for certain. Kurt Russell is gleefully mad and unrestrained (even to the point of self-mockery). The leading ladies are bad-ass, trash-talking, superstars - except for some excruciatingly annoying characters, of which there are a couple. The camera work is dated but very appropriate, the edit is paced well, and the soundtrack is phenomenal. Tarantino having fun, before he went mostly sour.

  • Risya's rating of the film Death Proof

    A homage to a lot of 70s exploitation films with over-the-top actions. A major critique has been that it contains a lot of dialogue, but I feel that Tarantino himself is recognised as being a writer that emphasises the dialogue in his films. For me, the pointless dialogues is effective to help get to know each characters better as a "build-up". As result, each of the characters hv attitude that makes them interesting

  • Mugino's rating of the film Death Proof

    I love all the girls in the film -- they are either reminiscent of the girlfriends that I hang out with, or I can easily imagine myself hanging out with. I thought the dialogue was fun and believable, except with the extra punch and humor that comes from Tarantino's manic mind. The climactic action sequence had me on edge... Zoe Bell is incredible! (I'd be a nervous wreck if I was her mom.)

  • Addiena of Mubi land's rating of the film Death Proof
