Sadly, we cannot undo the unconscionable acts propelled by racism and sexism throughout our history. A large part of fixing these See it at the Roxy! copyproblems is coming to grips with what actually occurred. Viscerally experiencing the shameful humiliations is a good start. In The Hateful Eight, Quentin Tarantino, never one to shy away from harsh realities, holds a mirror to some of the crassest and most unmerciful forms of denial of human dignity.

Draping his hate-filled, postbellum tale around a classic Western genre, Tarantino intensifies the proceedings with glorious Super Panavision 70mm cinematography and a score from spaghetti western veteran Ennio Morricone. The Hateful Eight is meant to be seen on the widest screen possible. Ironically, much of the film takes place in one room, Minnie’s Haberdashery, a roadside rest stop set amidst a Wyoming blizzard.

Featuring breakout performances from stars Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley, the movie follows high school senior Sutter Keely, who lives in the moment rather than dwelling on the past or looking to the future. However, all that changes after his girlfriend dumps him and he meets Aimee Finecky, who isn’t exactly the typical company that he keeps.
