Kurt Russell, Rose McGowan, Rosario Dawson, Vanessa Ferlito, Zoë Bell / Fiction / English
Hitch a thrill-ride, as Tarantino's latest tears up the tarmac.
Framed as a 70s drive-in indulgence - complete with grainy stock, jump cuts and flamboyant violence - but as contemporary as only the creator of instant hipster cults could make it, Death Proof is a trip. Two carloads of sharp-talking vixens find themselves targeted in turn by insatiable psycho-killer Stuntman Mike - but still find time to discuss old movies, slate bad boyfriends, and perform the odd diverting lapdance. Rose McGowan, Rosario Dawson, Vanessa Ferlito, Tracie Thoms and Zoë Bell are among the starlets keeping the hotpants brief and the tempo snappy, while Kurt Russell has the time of his life in the bad guy role. The most indulgent, shameless, lovable chick-centric B-romp since Russ Meyer was in his prime.
