Dir. Quentin Tarantino. 2007, 113 mins. 35mm director’s cut from Tarantino’s personal collection! With Kurt Russell, Zoë Bell, Rosario Dawson. Tarantino’s widescreen homage to 1970s car-chase exploitation pictures—originally part of the omnibus theatrical feature Grindhouse, in a shorter cut—features a wily Kurt Russell as an ex-stunt car driver who murders beautiful women with a souped-up Chevy, before he meets his match in a gaggle of take-no-crap stuntwomen out on a joyride of their own. Incredible high-speed chases, vivid characterizations, and exquisite compositions make this wildly inventive recapitulation of the rape-revenge thriller a thrilling delight throughout.
