Los odiosos ocho (2015), de Quentin Tarantino

Inmersos como estamos en una época en la que el cine de ficción (no así otras formas de cine..) se ha vuelto muy académico y predecible, y muy poco valiente o estimulante, salvo algunos títulos excepcionales y raros, la presencia de Quentin Tarantino dentro del cine estadounidense en el último cuarto de siglo ha representado, entre otras cosas, un soplo de subversión, frescura e ingenio. 1,111 more words
