    Still masterfully unbearable.

    ★★★★

    It still goes waaaaaay broader than I usually like (especially in the third act) but it's also still fun, weirdly clever and sweet enough for me to forgive its problems.

    I can't even think of words to describe the ways I love this movie. Masterfully clever, shocking, nail-bitingly tense, hilarious - the cast is a once in a lifetime cavalcade of awesome and I have no doubt that there are a number of scenes that will be studied in film classes years from now. Definitely Quentin Tarantino's most mature, coherent film and arguably his best. QT deserved the Best Original Screenplay Oscar this year and it is a travesty that Melanie Laurent wasn't even nominated for her performance.

    Not at all what I was expecting - in a good way. Funny, interesting and surprisingly somber at times; I can see myself revisiting this film quite a bit in the future.
