i finally caved in and watched this and well, just like all other tarantino movies, this is a straight white guy's wet dream of a film and i'm once again left unimpressed. sue me.
"i like the idea that at the end of [the last] shot, there isn't a sense of being content but there is the idea similar to that phone call – that it wasn't a dream. all of that happened and even though it's over for now it's still an experience i get to keep. it's almost like a secret."
