“The Hateful Eight” (2015)

This film is what happens when you cross Agatha Christie with Quentin Tarantino, a combination that I didn’t know I wanted, but now am very happy that I got. This film showcases that Tarantino understands set-up and build-up incredibly, as he lets the mystery and unease slowly and uncomfortably unfold, until the film’s sudden explosion of inevitably violence finally rears its head. There are a number of genuinely surprising twists and turns, the film is transfixing, and, despite it’s nearly three-hour long runtime and its slower pace compared to Tarantino’s other works, this film goes by like a breeze. This film is well acted, extremely entertaining, and a chillingly claustrophobic mystery that masterfully builds and releases tension.

Rating: 5/5
