I have rated 755 films on IMDb; I've watched many more, I suspect. Finally, a film has caused me to write a review out of pure respect to the creators.
If you like:
surreal cinema, extreme violence, dark humour, transitions from guilty laughs to gut-wrenching, sickening imagery, thought-provoking intelligent drama which superficially looks and sounds unintelligent
then you may well feel the same about this film as I do.
Quentin Tarantino is one of my all-time idols. If he had made this film the world would have raved about it.
