Kurt Russel gives a good performance, and I don't remember enjoying any of his others. Quentin Tarantino reprises the style he used so well in Pulp Fiction: lengthy and pointless dialogues that mostly do nothing to serve the story (and deliberately so I suspect), but nevertheless interesting, and perhaps the one thing that made people fall in love with this master-director.

The cast of the first of the 2 stories found in Death Proof is top-rate and the handling of the material helps the piece feel real fresh. Oh, and it also got the best (and most gruesome) car crash in recent memory.
