The Hateful Eight (R) 168 minutes

THE HATEFUL EIGHT Movie (R)--Set in 1870’s, post Civil War, in Wyoming with a blizzard coming.  Bounty Hunter John Ruth (Kurt Russell) is trying to get Ms. Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh) to the town of Red Rock to be brought to justice.  Along the way he and his wagon driver Olie pick up two strangers; another bounty hunter and former union soldier, Major Marquis Warren (Samuel L. Jackson), and a former southern renegade, Chris Mannix (Walter Goggins), who claims to be the new mayor of Red Rock. The storm forces them to stop at Minnie’s Haberdashery, a stagecoach stopover. But they are not greeted by the proprietor, Minnie, but by four strangers. Suspenseful and graphically violent, with a simple story that is revealed in a deeply convoluted way, as only Quentin Tarantino at his best can do.
