The Hateful Eight didn't have quite the impact of either Inglourious Basterds or Django Unchained, which is a shame — Quentin Tarantino's chamber drama is his best work since at least the Kill Bill cycle. It's also a curiously intimate showcase for the now-rarefied 70mm format, which is how the Aero is screening it during a series dedicated to new movies shot on ultra-wide film stock (also included: Interstellar, Inherent Vice, The Master). Watching the ensemble cast whittle itself down — there are nine main characters to start with, despite the title — and figure out which of them aren't who they say they are gives new meaning to the term "process of elimination."
