Death Proof - Lap Dance Scene

Let’s talk about strong female characters/quentin tarantino/sexism:

This is one of my favorite quentin tarantino (overall movie) scenes. It explains a lot how i wish woman would be portrayed in movies.

Let’s look at her:

  • She wears almost no make up
  • She wears chill clothes (flip flops / tshirt)

And now at how she’s shown during the lap dance:

  • She sings along with the song, which makes her look confident, self assure and more like this is something she actually enjoys doing and isn’t only for the male pleasure
  • there are no slow motion close ups. Expect (ah tarantino) for her foot set firmly between his thighs and her knee slowly approaching his stomach. Both motion seem more threatening than sexual and remind the viewer that she could very easily harm him.
  • right from the first scene she’s shown from a slight lower angle, which is used in movies to make people look stronger
  • Her dance is slightly off and a little bit awkward. it’s wasn’t perfectly choreographed made into something unnatural or inhuman (and i’m still never gonna be as sexy as her)
  • He only touches her AFTER she takes his hands herself

At last, her surroundings: 

  • 90% all different kinds of woman that enjoy her lap dance as well.

This whole movie is about strong women. the end

Thank you Tarantino

Many of you signed the petitions, called and emailed the art studio, wrote on social media,…
