The Hateful Eight
“What’s going on? You having a bounty hunter picnic?” Chris Mannix (Walton Goggins)
Writer-director Quentin Tarantino’s three hour Western is a return to RESERVOIR DOGS - a mesmerising use of confined space, dialogue and violence. On initial viewing this is a film one admires more than loves. (Will this be a grower that sinks its teeth in like INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS?) Regardless of amour, there is plenty to enjoy. Charisma drips off the screen as seasoned character actors become one with the filmmaker’s beguiling prose. Sustaining engagement is all the more impressive, as such an epic runtime is usually reserved for sweeping historical sagas. THE HATEFUL EIGHT is predominantly set in one room.
