GRINDHOUSE

Director: QUENTIN TARANTINO & ROBERT RODRIGUEZ

U.S.A. • 2007 • COLOUR • DOLBY DIGITAL STEREO • 191 MIN


IT’S ONLY APPROPRIATE THAT TWO OF THE IFI’S FAVOURITE FESTIVAL EVENTS—DARKLIGHT AND HORRORTHON—SHOULD COMBINE TO PRESENT THE ONLY IRISH CINEMA OUTING FOR ROBERT RODRIGUEZ AND QUENTIN TARANTINO’S VALIANT ATTEMPT TO REVIVE THE GORY, GLORY DAYS OF THE B-MOVIE DOUBLE-BILL.
Anyone who caught Rodriguez’s kinetic zombie opus Planet Terror and Tarantino’s bizarro female revenge flick Death Proof in their stand-alone versions may be surprised by their leaner, paired-down Grindhouse cuts—in Tarantino’s case, the abridged Death Proof is infinitely preferable. The decision to separate the two halves of Grindhouse for individual European release was a spectacularly misjudged one, essentially negating the purpose of the exercise while depriving audiences of a series of hysterical faux movie trailers buffering the main features (and worth the price of admission alone), courtesy of Rob (The Devil’s Rejects) Zombie, Edgar (Hot Fuzz) Wright, Eli (Hostel) Roth and Rodriguez himself. The Heaven’s Gate of the Miramax generation? A natural born cult classic? Or both? Don’t miss this one-off opportunity to witness the tawdry majesty of Grindhouse on the big-screen.
