The Hateful Eight (2015) Watch the movie of director Quentin Tarantino
When the statue of Jesus covered by snow appeared in the first scene of The Hateful Eight, many will remember Fargo’s infamous space, the classic “black” film produced by the Coens brothers 1996. There are more reasons to believe that Quentin’s eighth film, which is well-received in the first line, will be very similar to Fargo. Not in the plot, but in the spirit: on the singularity of the fate of being out of the control of the law, and of God.
At least that’s what I thought of when watching the trailer quite attractive, as well as the opening suggestion of Hateful Eight. Because everything starts with accident. A black bounty hunter called Colonel Warren (Samuel L. Jackson) takes the ride of the “hangman” John Ruth (Kurt Russell), another bounty hunter. Ruth is extraditing Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh) to the town of Red Rock to get the money. He has the habit of keeping the survivor alive to witness the execution, the reason for that scary nickname.
In the middle of the road, the two met another guy, Chris Mannix, who claimed to be Red Rock’s new police chief. Can not abandon the person who will sign the receipt for himself, Ruth had to put him on the car. Because of the snowstorm, they stopped at “Mindy Point Bistro,” where four others were waiting. It was Bob (Demián Bichir), claiming to be the new employee of the cafe, announced that his grandparents are gone and he will take care of everything. “Executor” Mobray (Tim Roth), hangman in the town. Joe Gage (Michael Madsen) wrote on the way to his Christmas home. Finally, the retired general Smithers (Bruce Den), old man just sit by the fireplace.
The Hateful Eight’s situation is similar to that of Quentin Tarantino’s other famous Reservoir Dogs in 1992. If the problem of bandits in the Dogs is to find the cop’s hand, then with Hateful Eight, Domergue. Ruth says that at least one of the eight men is killing all at once, to save her. This is Quentin’s favorite type of situation: a small, cramped setting with lots of interesting items (coffee, table …); freaks with character, purpose and interests confront each other (rescue, bonus …); and of course, racial hatred is represented by a black man who is good at killing. Those who are familiar with Quentin will know what awaits them, the distinctive chapter style, the long conversations, and the bloody violence of the “entertainment”.
I can say that I am a fan of Quentin Tarantino, if the definition of fans is always love the work of the idol. I have never been disappointed with any of the films you’ve seen, whether as a director or as a writer (True Romance is one of my favorite films, directed by Tony Scott). Despite complaints of violence and impatience – some of my friends could not see his movie, as most of the good characters died – I was always interested in enjoying the quality of western inclusion. with liberal music, psychological torture before high-pitched violent riots, and the use of detailed bold personal branding.
Hateful Eight, unfortunately, will be the first movie out there. And this is proof that even the best monster will have some time to keep up the style. For Quentin, that’s number eight.
