July 22 @ 9:15 pm
Two screenings! 6:30PM and 9:15PM.
“Much of this material is terrific in purely cinematic terms; one of Tarantino’s saving graces as a filmmaker is his often surprising capacity for contemplative moments and patches of plotlessness.” – Salon
“Smart attention is paid to some interesting tensions between old and new in areas as varied as pop culture, photography, effects work, automobile construction, telephony and audio recording technology” – Time Out
“Death Proof doesn’t simply comment on its genre inspirations – it adds to their very legacy.” – Projection Booth
Stuntman Mike (Kurt Russell) is a professional body double who likes to take unsuspecting women for deadly drives in his free time. He has doctored his car for maximum impact; when Mike purposely causes wrecks, the bodies pile up while he walks away with barely a scratch. The insane Mike may be in over his head, though, when he targets a tough group of female friends, including real-life stuntwoman Zoe Bell (who served as Uma Thurman’s double in Kill Bill), who plays herself.
Dir. Quentin Tarantino. 127 min. 2007.
