Dir. Quentin Tarantino. 2007, 113 mins. Digital projection. With Kurt Russell, Zoë Bell, Rosario Dawson, Rose McGowan, Eli Roth. Quentin Tarantino dives deeply into his pulp-genre roots with Death Proof, a rip-roaring slasher flick that harkens back to the drive-in exploitation films of the 1950s. When a trio of Austin’s foxiest femmes trot out at dusk for a fun night on the town, they fall victim to a weathered stuntman who uses his “death proof” muscle cars to execute his murderous plans. In her biggest role to date, Zoë Bell stars as herself, opposite Kurt Russell.
