The Hateful Eight

Quentin Tarantino / US, 2015 / 187 min.

Good Westerns have a straightforward storyline and Quentin Tarantino’s eighth film to date is no exception. Seven men and a woman are thrown together in wintry Wyoming, not long after the end of the Civil War. Eye will be screening the 70mm version, which offers an extra 6 minutes of widescreen spectacle.

A blizzard is raging across the hills of Wyoming and four passengers heading for Red Rock decide to seek shelter in a stage coach stopover. They are the bounty hunter John “The Hangman” Ruth, his fugitive, Daisy, Major Marquis “The Bounty Hunter” Warren (with three fresh corpses in tow) and Chris “The Sheriff” Mannix. Waiting for them in the stopover are Bob “The Mexican”, Oswaldo “The Little Man” Mobray, Joe “The Cow Puncher” Gage and ex-general Sanford “The Confederate” Smithers. Who will reach Red Rock unscathed?

For his western shot in spectacular Ultra Panavision 70 – with an original score by Ennio Morricone – Tarantino worked with some of his favourite actors, including Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell and Bruce Dern. The film was shot with an anamorphic lens, the same lens that was used to make Hollywood classics like Ben-Hur (1959) and Mutiny on the Bounty (1962). Eye acquired an Ultra Panavision lens especially for this event and adapted the screen of Cinema 1 to extend it to maximum size.
