Tarantino's 'The Hateful Eight' Shows Us The Ugly Racist Truth Of America

WBUR - 04-25


What’s being billed as an “Extended Version” of Quentin Tarantino’s transcendently nasty 2015 opus “The Hateful Eight” drops this week on Netflix. Details of the release remain shrouded in mystery, but insiders assume that included will be the six extra minutes of dialogue scenes originally exclusive to the film’s 70mm roadshow release, and possibly the overture and intermission that accompanied its endearingly old-fashioned theatrical presentation – though neither musical interlude would really make much sense on a streaming service that doesn’t even let you watch the closing credits.
