A fully nude man is shown from the side walking through the snow. His penis and testicles are visible for about 5 seconds. While the scene is shown from a distance, the man’s genitals are clearly shown.
There are no sex scenes

A man forces another man to give him oral sex in exchange for a blanket, this is “a scene of violent sexual content” as the MPAA was referring to. The man recounts the story as the scene is shown as a flashback. We see the man on his knees with his head at the other man’s crotch, but no nudity is shown. The scene is only about 3 seconds long, and the actual act is not a part of it


Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


Perhaps because of the emphasis on personal taste, Quentin has been on my list of directors with the highest attention since “evil city”. It is a great pity that “liberated ginger” failed to win the Oscar for best picture (so the political standard is higher than the literary standard, and so is the United States emperor) – I thought it was a masterpiece of Quentin style. Violence is no longer just waving a knife and blood in front of the camera, but forbearing, covering up The sudden outburst and sudden stop after repression – this hovering feeling of being sent to a hundred feet high in tens of seconds but being pulled away from the support under your feet, It’s a psychological and physiological double stimulation not seen in Quentin films before (don’t forget that in shameless bastards, the scalp still needs to be cut carefully, and Suzanne’s death is carefully carved in a red dress, the slow lens of rose rain and the background music of Ennio Morricone’s UN Amico). However, on the road of violence aesthetics, E.T. Quentin never seems to want to eat his old capital and always play some new tricks. This time is no exception. So when my friend told me that “eight villains” is not as good as “brother Jiang”, I think I should write something. At least explain the new patterns in Quentin’s film clearly. As for whether it looks good or not, the watchers have their own judgment.

Profession is related to religious belief, so the word “belief” (not to mention belief, not to be confused with religious belief) is used in this film to locate the common theme of the evil of the eight villains. In order to make a point, Quentin specially explained a Jesus statue on the cross at the beginning of the film – it seems to be a stone statue of Jesus, or it may have a meaning: white snow falls on it, but the Jesus statue is dark, which is not consistent with the face of Jesus seen in our church. If the interpretation of white is innocent and no evil, the image of Jesus symbolizing faith (belief) is black, which can be regarded as a straightforward theme.

In the film, both bounty hunters catch the wanted man. The belief of “hanged man” is the gallows, which represents the national legal system. No matter whether the reward list says “dead or alive”, he insists on bringing the prisoner back to the town alive. He believes that the “justice” he knows can be achieved only when he sees that the criminal is really tortured and dead – so a bullet results in the criminal, which is frontier justice and disrespect for the hanging executor (i.e. the legal system). Samuel’s bounty hunter only takes the prisoner’s body back to town, but is this just “making work easier” as he said? From the following dialogue, we can see that he is an anti slavery activist who burned a concentration camp (even black compatriots). He is a “insulted and damaged” who claims to be awakened. His resistance to the injustice of the world is shown as taking pleasure in white revenge. It is also pointed out in the last chapter: “black man, white shell”. His belief, or so-called justice, is to kill white people who “deserve it”. The forged Lincoln’s letter and the conversation between him and the “hanged man” at the dinner table are very interesting: the hanged man never believed the son of a rebel leader of the southern faction who claimed to be a sheriff in red rock, but easily believed the black bounty hunter with a so-called Lincoln’s letter (it’s not his IQ or lack of judgment, but what a person chooses to believe will affect his judgment.). Finally, because he insisted on bringing the female prisoner back to the town, he not only lost his own life, but also implicated the innocent groom to death (I understand that the eight villains do not include the groom and the sheriff: the eight villains refer to two bounty hunters, the old general, the female prisoner, the female prisoner’s brother and three accomplices). Therefore, the death of the groom, “the Hanged Man” is also to blame, which is where the character “is evil because of faith”.

Needless to say, female prisoners are one of a group of criminals who commit crimes. But her brother who came to save her, as well as the other three, also had their own belief: her sister was caught by bounty hunters and hanged. As a brother, how can he not save his family? Family affection is the belief of the bandit leader, and “setting up a bureau to save his sister” is also the justice he knows, which has nothing to do with whether they are good or bad. The three bandit brothers are willing to take risks, naturally for the sake of brotherhood, which is also their belief. Helping brothers save their relatives is the “justice” in their eyes.

The sheriff should be the most debatable and interesting role in the film. At first, it seems that there is no connection with the two factions destined to meet and fight. They get on the carriage skillfully and accidentally, but it is actually the key to the turning point of the plot. The detailed background of the black bounty hunter and the forgery of Lincoln’s letter were jointly told by him and the old general. However, as a descendant of the leaders of the southern rebels, he evaluated his father’s behavior as respectable, not because he was so right, but because he called it a “lost cause”. He knew that he could not do it, so he deserved respect. Therefore, he did not believe in the idea of the southern faction. From his conversation with the bounty hunter, he did not have the belief that prisoners must die by torture. He was an “outsider” and had no reason to offend or support any of them. In the end, he did not choose to compromise with female prisoners because the poisoning of coffee killed innocent grooms, When she was about to drink coffee, the female prisoner didn’t stop. [imagine if he didn’t take coffee? If the hanged man didn’t stop him from drinking coffee? If the female prisoner stopped him from drinking coffee (maybe impossible)? And what would he do to the injured black Bounty Hunter (5W dollars bounty) Here is the tone of existentialism. A person without faith becomes himself in choosing whether to believe or not; Good and evil are full of contingency in the choice of this belief]

To sum up, Quentin told a story of great fear. People are willing to die or decide to kill for faith (belief), which can be the difference between North and South and the difference of skin color; It can also be brother and sister; Brotherhood; It can be a gallows or a letter. Whether to live or die, whether to kill or stay, all are “believe” or “don’t believe”. If Quentin paid attention to the visual impact of the violent aesthetic picture of waving the blade and blood in the early stage, and then turned to the discussion of the conditions and effects of violence, this film put violence into philosophy and belief system for a reflection: all killings in this world are dressed in the coat of faith (belief). Once “justice” becomes violence in the name of “faith”, it is difficult to get rid of evil. Behavioral violence is essentially the externalization of spiritual violence. The end of the film seems to explain that when any superficial justice executes violence, there is always a pair of black hands behind it – here white shell no longer refers to the literal white hell, but the hell of justice and goodness.
