a+a = a
2a = a
2 = 1
So you think Death Proof is not a well-made film? All I was saying is...reducing films to some impression of thematic subject material is a mistake and doesn't at all consider the ways in which the filmmaker goes about constructing and shaping the ideas, which is part of what we call "artistry". How little is conveyed of NCFOM's fine storytelling and cinematic qualities by referring to No Country For Old Men as "that film where a psycho killer chases people and kills them".
