Every day, find the programming of movies and series to watch on TV. This Sunday: A female trio from hell, François Civil and Ana Girardot reunite with Klapisch for a modern love story and the sequel to “Handkerchiefs”.
THE MOVIE OF THE DAY
In 2007, Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez had the idea of shooting Grindhouse, a crazy double program that mixed eroticism and violence, interspersed with trailers, in reference to the homonymous operating systems.
Unlike in the United States, this concept is considered too unusual for European countries, where it is split into two: Rodriguez’s zombie movie Planet Terror and Tarantino’s slasher road-movie Death Boulevard.
The latter pays homage to the encore cinema of the 70s, in particular thanks to a particular image grain and untimely film jumps or chase scenes performed without computer graphics, where the actors themselves perform their stunts. This is the case of Zoë Bell, substitute for Uma Thurman in Kill Bill, who climbs at full speed on the hood of a racing car in one of the key moments of the film.
Despite mostly positive reviews, Death Boulevard was a commercial failure, grossing only $31 million worldwide. With an average audience rating of 3.6 on AlloCiné, it is indeed one of the least popular films in Tarantino’s filmography.
A failure that puts into perspective, given that Death Boulevard today enjoys the status of a cult work that has given rise to three spin-offs: Machete, Machete Kills and Hobo with a Shotgun.
