Anne Thompson Covers Hateful Eight Live Read


Read the whole thing over at Thompson on Hollywood but this, I think, is the money shot:

“Cut to black!” Tarantino said at the end of four chapters, which are packed with references from “Gone with the Wind” to “Rio Bravo.” “No more co-writing!” he warned actors who were straying from the script. You can imagine what this opened up wide-screen movie could be–complete with time-shifting perspectives, secrets to be solved, wind blowing through kicked-in doors, surging horses, raging blizzards, knives, blazing guns, smoldering corpses, projectile vomiting and bodies piled on the floor. So could the audience. After the drawn-out fifth chapter, “Black Night, White Hell,” Tarantino yelled “The End!” and took his bows to another standing ovation.

“It’s more ‘Ten Little Indians’ than ‘The Seven Samurai,'” observed one wag on the way out of the theater.

    I don’t trust Tarantino’s writing or directing anymore after Django. I’m totally done with him. I really don’t think he’s done anything great since Pulp Fiction.
