Death Proof (2007) (part 1 of 5)
Plus, stick around till the end, as Ed second-guesses an Oscar winning screenwriter!
Let me start by saying that I am an unabashed Quentin Tarantino fan. Pulp Fiction is one of the best movies of the ‘90s, Jackie Brown is a fine blending of Tarantino and Elmore Leonard, and his script for From Dusk Till Dawn is quite fantastic.
I won’t get into his background, since lord knows there’s been enough information readily available since 1992, and to be brutally frank, I don’t have time for that shit! The reason is that today, we’ll be discussing Death Proof, or as I like to call it, “How to convince people that Robert Rodriguez is a better filmmaker than I am.”*
[*Alternatively, you could sub in “When you get down to it, I’m really just a spastic film nerd with a big budget and a foot fetish!”]
