I have been a huge fan of Tarantino from the beginning... but one of my new favorite movies of all time is Death Proof. The major selling point to me was the soundtrack. I think all of the music choices were PERFECT for this movie. I especially loved the Coaster's song "Down in Mexico" for the lap dance. It may be just because of my age, but I had never heard this song before. Second... Kurt Russell did an amazing job as Stuntman Mike. He truly creeped me out in the beginning of the movie. Third... the cars. Who could hate a movie that had such amazing cars in it! That was the major selling point for my husband. Fourth... the fact that the girls in the end show Stuntman Mike what's up. Fifth... Zoe. She did such an amazing job for not even being an actress. I didn't realize it during the movie until I watched the special features. Rosario Dawson (whom I LOVE) did a great job. I think the plot line was incredible, as well as the cinematography. Quentin Tarantino is truly one of the best movie makers of our time.
With all that being said... I will have to point out I did not like how the movie ended. I wish there was a little more to it. It didn't feel over when the credits started rolling.
All in all I LOVED this movie, however it is a bit gory and shouldn't be seen by children (pretty much anyone under 17).
