Death Proof's Car Chase

One of the recent car chases etched strongly on my memory cells is from 'Bourne Identity' where the mini blazes through the narrow streets of Paris. But the immediacy & urgency in the sequence is generated by too many shots from various angles from inside & outside the car with some good music. The thrill is concocted but very much there.

I saw 'Death Proof' by Tarantino last week. You got to give it to the man - he just loves old movies and the final car chase, though not high on technique (because of the screenplay, a throwback to the sixties), its pure thrill. You just see two cars chasing & dashing each other and a woman holding on to her nerves. But the adrenalin this chase scene generates would be in litres. Tarantino said: Every time a stunt happens, there's twelve cameras and they use every angle for Avid editing, but I don't feel it in my stomach. It's just action.
