Drama, Western
Django Unchained convinced me that Quentin Tarantino is out of ideas; this follow-up, another western, didn't persuade me otherwise, but it takes a more thoughtful approach to his usual preoccupations (revenge, mainly). In Wyoming, presumably during the tail end of Reconstruction, a blizzard strands a bounty hunter (Kurt Russell) and the outlaw he's transporting (Jennifer Jason Leigh) at a rest stop with a grisly cast of characters, one or more of whom may be surreptitiously trying to break the outlaw free. This is Tarantino's bleakest and most violent film, but it's also his slowest, a meditation on vengeance and justice in America and possibly in his own movies. Why he needs three hours to draw no apparent conclusion is unclear. With Samuel L. Jackson, Walton Goggins, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern, and Channing Tatum.
