Quentin Tarantino Analysis

921 Words4 Pages

Quentin Tarantino has always been one of the most controversial and charismatic auteurs (if I may call) in Hollywood, as he proves to be an edgy writer/director who dares to tackle an aspect of modern life so dark, so brutal that the public may feel offended and uncomfortable. Also, having spent his youth at the video store, he constantly inserts homages to the old days of cinema and his works reflected so much of the old value to a point that people sometimes accuse him of being a copycat. That being said, his fans respect and admire him because he boldly walks the line. Rising from early movies like the unique indie heist flick Reservoir Dogs to recent success like Inglorious Basterds and Django Unchained, together with involvement in countless screenplays and side trips like the co-op mission with Robert Rodriguez in Grindhouse (segment ‘Death Proof’), Tarantino secures a spot in the line of A-list directors.

The Hateful Eight arrived in late 2015 (actually right on time with J.J. Abrams’ long-waited The Force Awakens at the box office) as the eighth directorial piece from Tarantino. He had announced the plan back in 2013 but then the script leaked in 2014 and the production was cancelled. He later changed his mind and decided to bring us a new script with a whole new film, while facing some controversies related to police boycott and gender/race issues portrayed in his works.

The film opens with an overture with the soundtrack scored by Ennio Morricone.
