Editorial Review: Grindhouse

Another Pro-Rodriguez review.
Grindhouse :washingtonpost.com
“Planet Terror” is by far the livelier, drawing from work by Herschell Gordon Lewis, Italian goremeisters Mario Bava and Dario Argento, and George A. Romero. The situation involves a bunch of people, including a beautiful doctor in high heels, a defrocked deputy, a one-legged go-go dancer, a barbecue chef and a wounded sheriff, trying to escape from a landscape of heavily armed, zombified cannibalistic killers.
Tarantino’s “Death Proof” is so narratively simplistic that to describe it is to ruin it. Let’s just say it’s a car-chase movie fused with a women’s acting workshop and leave it at that.
