Writer-Director Quentin Tarantino is back with his eighth film, The Hateful Eight, which had a bit of a rocky road to theaters—the script leaked a while back and Tarantino initially vowed not to produce the film due to the leak, but he clearly revised his position. Does this one recall the Tarantino magic, or has the seasoned filmmaker begun to fade?
Selma made me angry. Seeing the willful ignorance from the white South in the 1960s and the disgusting horrors they inflicted on the African-American citizens there made me angry. It wasn’t just loathing of the perpetrators, but the fact that these events really happened and they’re still happening today. Yes, Selma made me angry, and it’s one of the best films of the year.
