Death Proof


The premise: Stunt babes versus Stuntman Mike (as played by Kurt Russell, icy hot and deliciously duck-tailed). The movie elevates the exploitation-device-as-feminist-tract. It’s a guy flick for chicks, a valentine to the drive-in, the Vanishing Point car, and the breakout star (Zoe Bell); but this is Kurt’s ride all the way. Death Proof is the most fun I had at the movies in 2007.

Rating: A-
