The Hateful Eight

★★★★

A passionate and indulgent lovesong to, among other delights, Jack Nicholson's excellent screenplays for the Monte Hellman films Ride in the Whirlwind & The Shooting.

Roger Avary's Favorite Musicals

I'm film director & writer Roger Avary, and these are my favorite musicals, ranked. It's super difficult, and super close, between my top 7 -- all of which I love as my favorite in different ways. This ranking is how I feel today. I've excluded Disney animations, which are marvelous musicals which really belong within their own ranking.
