Anybody going to see Machete tonight?

Posted By on Fri, Sep 3, 2010 at 2:02 PM

Unsure what to think of the sure-to-be-literally-and-figuratively incendiary Machete? We were too. Then our estimable critic Maryann Johanson saw it. Here's a snippet:

Remember that crazy funny fake trailer  for the fictional 70s Mexploitation flick Machete that preceded the Planet Terror segment of Grindhouse a few years back? Robert Rodriguez whipped up that two-and-a-half-minute bit of ultra-violent fluff and kept whipping, until now it's a two-hour, crazy/funny/violent Mexploitation feature that couldn't be more timely.

Oh yes, there is revolutionary rage in Machete.

Hear that? She said "revolutionary," though more in the Che Guevara sense than in the Frida Kahlo sense, but nonetheless, you can read the rest here.
