The promise of a ‘Western with winter’ in the vein of The Great Silence, Ravenous, Jeremiah Johnson or McCabe & Mrs. Miller is just about as compelling as just about anything in cinema for yours truly. You can guess at the tingle that this particularly painterly poster offers. Kudos to Quentin Tarantino and other keeping the genre alive (and this year promises to be particularly kind for gunslingers and ne’er-do-wells.) The Hateful 8 with its gritty tagline (I can practically hear that line being spoken by Kurt Russell or Bruce Dern) alongside foot prints and blood. And a collection of hardened men against the backdrop of gently falling snow. Bliss.
