"like watching a foul-mouthed episode of "Sex and the City" that ends in violence and dismemberment."

That's how Dennis Lim describes Quentin Tarantino's Death Proof. And here's some choice words for Robert Rodriguez's half of the Grindhouse double-bill:

The recent wave of zombie movies has encompassed a variety of approaches: the paranoid urgency of "28 Days Later," the stoned humor of "Shaun of the Dead," the anti-Bush sting of George Romero's "Land of the Dead" and Joe Dante's "Homecoming." Rodriguez's movie will be remembered as the one with the jar of pickled testicles.
