A mystery western that takes place after the civil war, this latest offering from QT is also one of his most enjoyable. Kurt Russell, Walton Goggins, Samuel L. Jackson, and others bring their A games and chew up the scenery…especially Russell who looks like he’s having more fun here than he has in years. A whodunnit and whydunnit that’s an entertaining mix of Reservoir Dogs and Clue…with a dash of Pulp Fiction…it works. The scope is smaller, the story simple, and the dialogue different than anything Tarantino’s done before. Bottom line? Loved Hateful.
