Hot August night in Hollywood…. perfect time and place for an original film renaissance. If you have a chance to see this one in the theater, it’s definitely the way to go. A true cinematic experience. From the perfect cast playing both against and to type, to the head-bopping, expertly assembled soundtrack… This film is on-screen perfection at the hands of a master. At first, I couldn’t quite put my finger on why the pacing felt so odd, but soon realized it was Tarantino’s avoidance of “exposition dumps” to build story. Instead, the film takes the time to paint a fully detailed picture of each character and setting. It was a breath of fresh air in today’s age of multi-billion dollar tentpole franchises. Hopefully a sign of more projects to come to a theater near you.
