FILM REVIEW: THE HATEFUL EIGHT (Rated R 18+)
Master creates bloodbath
You wouldn't invite The Hateful Eight's characters home for dinner.
The big screen
Quentin Tarantino has written and
directed The Hateful Eight, a western
that places a stick of dynamite in our
heads and delights in the explosion it
causes in our brains as we watch.
Tarantino is a master of filmmaking
techniques and styles. He commits to
old-fashioned filmmaking, from the
titles and music to the composition and
Tarantino is also a massive fan of
crass exploitation films and it shows in
The Hateful Eight.
The Hateful Eight is divided into
chapters. Each chapter explains one
element of the story and characters'
backgrounds. Every chapter builds on
the next one until we reach the
climactic final episodes.
Bounty hunter John Ruth is
transporting vicious murderer Daisy
Domergue to an appointment with the
hangman. They are forced to take
shelter from a fierce snowstorm at a
rest stop for stagecoaches.
At the cabin they meet Sheriff
Mannix, bounty hunter Major Marquis
Warren, Confederate General
Smithers, station man Bob, cowboy
Joe Gage and Englishman Oswaldo.
You might well wonder who are
these people and how do they happen
to all be in the same remote place in
the Wyoming wilderness. That is
certainly the question John Ruth asks.
The movie slowly unfolds their stories
This is not a group of people you
would invite home for dinner.
What ensues is a mixture of murder
mystery, blatant prejudices, frontier
justice and barbarous behaviour.
As in most Tarantino films, the
violence and language are deliberately
excessive. If you are unfamiliar with
Tarantino's style, you will be shocked.
The last two chapters literally blow
everything to pieces, especially
characters' heads, guts and genitals.
You will feel like having a shower to
cleanse yourself of the bloodbath you
Settle in for the three hours running
time and prepare to be brutalised.
