Death Proof

Visible crew/equipment: When stuntman Mike and the girls cars come back together after being separated by a pond, the shadow of a car-mounted camera crane is visible in the left bottom corner.


Continuity mistake: The shape and width of the scar on Stuntman Mike's face slightly varies between the scenes (from thin in the shot where he is pouring some eye drops into his eyes, to almost invisible during the scene at the parking lot in front of the shop in Lebanon, Tennessee, and wide during the final rush).

Deliberate mistake: At the end of the movie, where the girls chase stuntman Mike, they drive the upper dusty road. When their car is shown front outside angle, there's a lot of dust rising from the camera crew's car. But when the camera angle gets into their car and shoots strait ahead - the dust is all gone, the air is perfectly clear.

Trivia: The director and writer of this movie, Quentin Tarantino, also directed both Kill Bill movies. In the scene, where Abby is shopping, we can hear her cell phone ring, the ringtone is famous "Twisted Nerve" from Kill Bill.

Question: What happened to Lee? It never says what she was doing while the others were "out for a test drive" or if they went back for her. I heard somewhere that the guy raped her. Is this true?

Chosen answer: Since the actor is the same actor who played the raping guy in Kill Bill, it's seen as a hint that she is, in fact, raped.

Question: When Abby is in the store, Lee calls her. What is Abby's ringtone? It sounds familiar, but I can't place it.

Chosen answer: The tune is called "Twisted Nerve" by Bernard Herrmann. It sounds familiar because in one of Quentin Tarantino's earlier films "Kill Bill", Daryl Hannah's character was whistling it before attempting to murder Uma Thurman's character in her sleep.


Question: In the car racing scene between Stuntman Mike, Kim, Zoe, and Abby, I am confused as to why the car chase lasted so long. Couldn't Kim have simply slowed down gradually and shot Stuntman Mike? I mean, we hear her in an earlier scene talking about her gun and we see her shoot him after stopping. Why keep driving fast with your friend in danger and mess up the car that isn't yours?


Chosen answer: Because there wouldn't be a car chase if she stopped. It's all part of the fun.
