Photos from From Dusk Till Dawn – Robert Rodriguez, 1996. Pure entertainment. Can’t even call it a guilty pleasure, I just love this one. A vulgar, stylish Tarantino script overrides Rodriguez’s directing and cast’s QT’s style over the whole film (particularly in a series of stand offs that take place early in the first half of the film). Few films are able to successfully fuse two completely separate genres, and FDTD doesn’t do so gracefully. But Rodriguez and Tarantino provide enough thrills and highlights to keep you hooked in. Cheech Marin’s speech to kick off the film’s second half pretty much sums this one up.
