Death Proof ★★★★½


An idea of the grind-house as what it could be, or what it always was, according to Tarantino. It's most often now seen as a sub-set of Grindhouse - a media object designed to replicate not simply a certain kind of theater-going experience but the act of spectatorship within that space. When the two films hit the DVD market as separate pieces, it wasn't merely an act of collecting profit, but providing an alternate viewing mode beyond the construct of a three-hour nostalgia high.
