Death Proof – Todsicher

  His weapon is his car. Its prey are young, pretty women. His profession is serial killer. His name is Stuntman Mike. In Quentin Tarantino’s new film Death Proof – Todsicher / Grindhouse: Death Proof played by Kurt Russell, psychopathic Stuntman Mike from hunter to hunted. In the first part of four young girls come to the killer with a muscle car and the second part expects a different group from girls with the same killer.

Along with Robert Rodriguez Tarantino filmed under the title Grindhouse, a double feature. Unlike the U.S. release individually in German cinemas, both films and be seen in the longer international version. Only part of Tarantino’s Death Proof – Todsicher / Grindhouse: Death Proof ran in this year’s competition at Cannes, however, was empty, in contrast to Pulp Fiction.

Tarantino serves us with his car tracking film Death Proof – Todsicher / Grindhouse: Death Proof, the ingredients that we already know from his earlier films: casual and witty dialogue, cold-blooded murder, a brilliant soundtrack packed with hits from the 1960s and 70s and great actor. Above all, Kurt Russell, the legendary Snake Plissken from Escape from New York as Stuntman Mike, and a huge, concentrated woman power.

In a bar somewhere in Texas, Mike met his female victims. DJane drinking Jungle Julia (Sydney Tamiia Poitier) and her cool friends Arlene (Vanessa Ferlito), Shanna (Jordan Ladd) and Pam (Rose McGowan), flirting, giggling and not knowing, of course, that behind the mysterious stranger lurking death soon. So cruel and cold-bloodedly Stuntman Mike, the four girls with his death proof, then dunk car transported from one moment to the next death, is himself leaked so badly in the second part of the story. Abernathy (Rosario Dawson), Kim (Tracie Thoms) and Zoe (Zoe Bell) in an unforgettable way to take revenge on the killers – also with a car.

The fact that Tarantino, the exploitation cinema of the 1970s, revered and consumed in high doses, it should be noted the film. He has artificially distorted the footage so that it corresponds to the poor quality of the time. Scratches and cracks in the picture you on a journey of old films in Grindhouse cinemas were shabby, just awake, as the partial intermittent sound and the alternation of black and white and color film.

On 23 August will then start Robert Rodriguez’s Planet Terror in the German cinemas. The film is about a failed biological experiment, which then makes a horde of zombies do the unspeakable. They are opposed by a group of rebel, armed boys and girls on motorcycles who are trying to the monsters, the “Un-Dead-making being” difficult.

After Reservoir Dogs (1992), Pulp Fiction (1994) Jackie Brown (1997) and Kill Bill (2003/2004) is the eagerly and long awaited new work of the 44-year-old cult director Tarantino Thrillerkost at its finest. Not for the faint hearts and weak nerves, but it sure as hell is already a brilliant cult film.
