  • The Hateful Eight wears out its welcome well before the halfway point, leaving the equivalent of a whole other movie to sit — and suffer — through. show more

  • An epic work of self-indulgence and smug riffing, stringing together tropes from TV and screen westerns and closed-room whodunits, The Hateful Eight announces itself with all the pomp and circumstance of a mid-century cinema spectacle. show more

  • Those willing to put in the time will find a movie that is both beautiful and hideous, funny and shocking, and even thoughtful on occasion. show more
