The hype about the movie sets up a lot of questions. Tarentino remains one of the most loved and hated directors.
The movie starts strongly, and Jamie Foxx has a gravity on film that is undeniable.
The character of the Doctor is one of my favourite characters in some time.
The movie builds tension and suspense well, and you will be constantly beguiled by the soundtrack and visual tapestry that unfolds step by step.
There are moments were the blood flows in the movie but not as much as in other films and truthfully it plays an important element.
There are scenes that will shock and leave you questioning the moral line. Half way through a scene with dogs being set on someone for example.
The final act of the movie is one of those.
This movie will not be to everyone’s taste, nor is it the movie that many will expect.
We believe it is a very important movie that in time will be come to be loved as one of Tarentino’s best
Notable change of tone and possible a piece that could have been filmed differently is Samuel L Jackson’s character which feels slightly more like Samuel L Jackson than a truly separate character at the start. He is truly scary and terrifying.
One fact that shocked many viewers was the true nature of Alexandre Dumas. I wonder how many people already knew that he was black?
Overall: Stick with it – you’ll love it if you can watch the whole way through.
