From Dusk Till Dawn

From Dusk Till Dawn ★★★★

Indeed, still a good film.

Even though I became painfully aware during the last viewing that some films age better and the film experience cannot be preserved indefinitely. Some films only gain in complexity with age or after repeated viewings. "Jackie Brown", for example, is one of them. Unfortunately, "From Dusk till dawn" is not. It will never again be as beautiful as it was at various video parties in the mid/late 90s with plenty of beer, weed and a befriended pack of juvenile metalheads.

What remains is a well-scripted, dazzlingly cast and entertaining road gangster vampire movie about a pair of brothers who are a little too cool (and 90ies) and a snake dance that will delight not only foot fetishists - and nothing less.

But also nothing more.
