Grindhouse 101


The Details

American Grindhouse
August 21, 8 p.m., $5
Sci Fi Center
900 East Karen Ave, Suite D202

The term "grindhouse" has been thrown around so casually lately, including its use as a title for a Quentin Tarantino/Robert Rodriguez film collaboration, that its meaning has become a little obscured. The documentary American Grindhouse looks to change that, with an exploration of the rich history of grindhouse theaters and exploitation filmmaking. It shows exclusively this weekend at the Sci Fi Center, the closest thing we have in Vegas to a modern-day grindhouse theater.

  • A balance of strong humor with serious danger and uncertainty with a cast full of great actors.

  • Remarkably, the film gradually neutralizes its apparent protagonist, adding to a harrowing experience.

  • Ken Jeong has had scene-stealing roles as oddball characters, but a little of his manic energy goes a long way.
