So yesterday I saw Grindhouse. I thoroughly enjoyed it, but that's not the point of the post. The movie (the Death Proof portion, anyway) is yet another voice in the chorus of praises sung over the movie Vanishing Point. I watched Vanishing Point about four or five months ago and despised it. Seriously, for a car chase movie, not much actually happens, but they didn't fail to mix in a lot of late-60's philisophical hand-wringing and general pretentiousness. Even the naked girl on the motorcycle was boring. So why is this such a beloved icon of the car chase movie genre?

Anyhoo, that's what's been sticking in my craw for the past 12 hours or so.
