The Hateful Eight

The Hateful Eight
  • 2015
  • US
  • 2h 48min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Quentin Tarantino
  • Written by: Quentin Tarantino
  • Cast: Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Michael Madsen, Tim Roth
  • UK release: 8 January 2016

Bounty hunter John Ruth (Russell) is transporting vile criminal Daisy Domergue (Leigh) to be hanged, but takes shelter from a blizzard at Minnie's Haberdashery. Tarantino's eighth film recalls his first, being similarly fuelled by claustrophobia, suspicion and intrigue, but Reservoir Dogs didn't have Hateful Eight's operatic grandeur. Immense fun.
